Enter the total square footage of drywall (ft^2) and the drywall thickness (in) into the Drywall Weight Calculator. The calculator will evaluate the Drywall Weight.

## Drywall Weight Formula

The following two example problems outline the steps and information needed to calculate the Drywall Weight.

DW = A * T/12 * 38.205

Variables:

• DW is the Drywall Weight (lbs)
• A is the total square footage of drywall (ft^2)
• T is the drywall thickness (in)

## How to Calculate Drywall Weight?

The following steps outline how to calculate the Drywall Weight.

1. First, determine the total square footage of drywall (ft^2).
2. Next, determine the drywall thickness (in).
3. Next, gather the formula from above = DW = A * T/12 * 38.205.
4. Finally, calculate the Drywall Weight.
5. After inserting the variables and calculating the result, check your answer with the calculator above.

Example Problem :

Use the following variables as an example problem to test your knowledge.

total square footage of drywall (ft^2) = 30

drywall thickness (in) = .375

DW = A * T/12 * 38.205 = ?
