Forum Title: Measuring / estimating methods
Hi all, Flipper/GC here, and I've hired out many drywall jobs over the years and done a few as well. I encountered a new issue and want your opinions. My current drywall sub is charging by the square foot (I've usually used job quotes) and he says the way they measure square feet for drywall is: - round each measurement UP (ie a 4'1 wall would be 5') - don't deduct for any door or window openings Thus, a say 10'4 x 8'6 wall with a 4x3 window opening, which I would calculate as 76 square feet (using the inches and subtracting the opening) he would calculate as 99 square feet (11x9). As you can imagine this adds up to quite a difference. Is this standard practice and I just haven't encountered it before? Thanks, Curt
