OSB Wall Sheathing Cost
Construction Item Description
Framing estimate unit cost for OSB (Oriented Strand Board) wall sheathing of any thickness.
NOTE-- This unit cost works for any thickness of wall sheathing. It multiplies the cost of 1/2" OSB sheathing board by the thickness from the Structural Dimensions screen.
One square foot of horizontal wall area.
We figure that a carpenter can install about 74 square feet of OSB wall sheathing per hour, with a little help from an unskilled worker.
The cost includes 1 4x8 sheet of OSB sheathing for every 32 square feet of wall area, with a 10% waste factor.
Calculated exterior wall area.
