In most cases, drywall comes in gypsum panels of about 8’ by 4’. Each panel typically costs $10 to $20.
Homeowners spend an average of $1.50 per square foot for drywall. If you need to hang drywall in a room of about 12’ by 12’, you can expect to incur $480 to $720. This cost may be slightly higher if the drywall will be insulated or customized to your specific preferences.
Why hire a drywall contractor? Because they have the experience and expertise to ensure a successful project. They can also coordinate transportation, subcontractors, and building code issues that may arise along the way. To understand the drywall contractors cost, you first need to separate material and labor costs.
Contractors often charge about $3 per square foot for labor.
This cost may be less if the room is not awkwardly shaped. As a result, most homeowners spend an average of $1,700 for drywall installation (including the contractor cost). The final cost often ranges between $1,000 and $2,500.
For many years, drywall has been a useful material used to line the walls and ceilings of many different buildings. Drywall is convenient, cost-effective and excellent at providing insulation.
