What Is the Average Cost for Sheetrock Installation

Useless When It Comes to DIY Projects?  

If you don’t know one end of a hammer from the other and are clueless when it comes to DIY projects around the house, then sheetrock installation will be beyond you. The following are the average prices of installing sheetrock that you can expect to pay.

The average cost to install drywall starts from $1.60 to $2.35 a square foot. For a standard 12′ x 12′ room that has a wall height of 8′, the price will average around $815 for just the walls, or $903, this includes the ceiling drywall. This reflects an average cost of $2.12 a square foot for walls and $2.35 a square foot when it includes the ceiling.

This cost will decrease to around $1.60 a square foot on larger entire house projects and change again when there are non-standard features in walls such as curves, or drywall that have higher-grade fire resistance or soundproofing features.

The final cost of drywall installation will include the following:

  • Job site prep work and installation labor costs

  • Drywall costs

  • Supplies and materials

  • Cleaning of the job site

Drywall Cost Per Sheet

Depending on the model and thickness of drywall being installed, the per sheet price will range anywhere from $9.50 to $18 a sheet, the average price being $11.25 each. Sheetrock installation experts will often get access to lower unit prices for drywall when they buy it in bulk. For example:

  • A 12′ x 12′ room = 12 panels for the walls, and 5 more for the ceiling

  • $11.25 per panel x 12 = $135 just for the walls

  • $11.25 x 5 = $56 just for the ceiling

Drywall Panels Cost Approximately = $191
