The estimates provided using this online form are based on the square footage that you provide as you fill out the above fields.

We recommend you use at least a 10% waste factor (for average size rooms) with uncomplicated detailing.

The results generated using this Bell Supply Drywall Calculator assumes that your studs or joists are spaced on 16-inch centers, or 14 inches apart. Plus that you space nails along the framing 7 inches apart along ceilings, 8 inches apart along walls. And, that you space screws 12 inches apart along walls and ceilings. We also estimate that you may need 5.4 pounds of nails per 1000 square feet of wall or ceiling, and 3 pounds of screws for the same area.

Bell Supply is not responsible for the accuracy of the information provided by using this online drywall calculator. This calculator is for estimating purposes only. We hope you find it helpful. For more help, please contact us.
