Why Screw Estimating Matters

Without precise screw quantity plans, it's all too easy to incorrectly forecast how many you'll need across dozens of rooms. Suddenly you're short on supplies right when crews are ready to board and fasten. This forces purchasing managers into rush deliveries with markups while entire teams sit idle. Alternately, erroneously large bulk screw orders tie up cash while also risking quality degradation in long-term storage.

How We Determine Your Exact Screw Requirements

Leveraging decades of plasterboard screw supply data from construction projects nationwide, Building Materials has experience precisely estimating required quantities tailored to your specific builds.

As a general rule, industry standards call for a screw to be placed every 30-45cm across wall studs themselves spaced 40cm apart. However, directly applying this to an entire building's worth of wall space does not account for all variables. Our construction professionals carefully factor the following into our proprietary per-project screw quantity analysis:

  • Total wall areas and room counts
  • Single vs double-layer drywall configurations
  • Wall heights for multi-story calculations
  • Standard wood vs steel stud framing factors
  • Ceiling boarding needs
  • Contingency buffers to prevent shortages

With your project designs and plans as a guide, our team can help you break down exact plasterboard screw requirements area by area.
