Fiberboard Wall Sheathing Cost
Construction Item Description
Construction estimating unit cost for installation of fiber board wall sheathing materials.
NOTE-- This unit cost handles any thickness of fiber sheathing board. Enter the actual thickness into the exterior wall sheathing thickness on the Structural Dimensions screen.
One square foot of horizontal wall area.
We figure that a carpenter can install about 74 square feet of fiberboard wall sheathing per hour, with a little help from an unskilled worker.
The cost includes 1 4x8 sheet of fiberboard sheathing for every 40 square feet of wall area, plus one 4x8 sheet of plywood for every 166 square feet, with a 10% waste factor. This allows for plywood panels at end walls with foam insulation board for interior fill.
Calculated exterior wall area.
