How Much Drywall Can One Man Hang In 8 Hours?

The answer to this question depends on how many panels you can hang in an hour. A professional drywall hanger should be able to hang at least 25 square feet of drywall per hour, which is about 3/4 of a sheet. If you’re just hanging drywall in your home, however, it’s unlikely that you’ll be able to match this level of productivity.

Drywall is heavy stuff, so it’s no surprise that it takes a lot of time to hang one sheet of drywall. The average cost for a small home remodel is around $5,000 and a large project can run as high as $75,000 or more, according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS). That price includes everything from the contractors’ labor costs to any materials needed for the job.

If you do some simple math using the BLS data on average labor rates for construction workers ($35 per hour), then 1 man could hang roughly 4 sheets of drywall per day if they were working alone with no interruptions or distractions from other tasks. If there are 2 people working together on this project who each earn $35 per hour (or $70 total) then they could hang 8 sheets per day.
