Divide by the total square footage by the square footage of a sheet of

**plywood to find**the number of sheets required to cover the space. A 4×8 sheet of**plywood**is 32 ft^{2}. For example, if the area to be covered in**plywood**is 800 ft^{2}then 25 sheets of**plywood**will be needed to cover it.

Also know, how much does a 4x8 sheet of plywood cost?

A **4x8**-foot **sheet** of construction-grade **plywood costs** roughly $10 a **sheet**, while the same size **sheet** of OSB **costs** only $6 a **sheet**. Both **cost** about the same to install, $70 an hour for a carpenter. Installing either sheathing over a 500 square foot area **would cost** roughly $160 in material for **plywood** and $100 for OSB.
