How Much Does a Sheet of Drywall Weigh

To streamline the way of figuring the weight of drywall, typical drywall weighs 1.6 pounds per square foot at thick. While the weight of drywall at 5/8 thickness is about 2.31 pounds per square foot. However total weights in lbs may differ by size and by brand.

By the sheet, standard drywall sheeting comes in at: 4 by 8 by is close to 52 pounds 4 by 12 by is close to 77 pounds.

For moisture resistant board, weights for a 4 by 8 by sheet of green board is around 52 lbs. And a 4 by 12 by USG greenboard weighs in the vicinity of 77.5 or 76 lbs

So the green drywall is only slightly more in terms of total pounds. Note that these are only near weights and are not intended to represent exact physical amounts.

Single sheet weights are useful for moving them around but drywall quantity drywall weights translate more to the storage of the gypsum. Both should be considered not only for general transportation around but for storing, where the weight plays a role maintaining its flat surface.
