This tool calculates the amount of drywall you need for your walls and ceiling based on your input dimensions.

## Drywall Calculator for Walls and Ceiling

Use this calculator to estimate the number of drywall sheets needed for your project. The calculator takes into account the dimensions of the walls and ceiling, as well as any doors and windows present in the room.

### How to Use

- Enter the length, height, and width of the room.
- Enter the length and width of the ceiling.

### How it Calculates

The calculator first determines the total area of the walls and ceiling. It also subtracts the area occupied by doors and windows. The remaining area is then divided by the area of a single drywall sheet to determine the total number of sheets needed. This number is rounded up to ensure you have enough material.

### Limitations

This calculator provides an estimate and may not account for all the intricacies of your specific project settings. Always purchase a few extra sheets to account for cutting mistakes and waste.
