Question

Drywall Labor Rates For Hang, Tape&Bed, Texture In Dallas, TX?


I have seen the rates across the board on here depending on the location and type of labor (illegals vs legal).

My question is what are the going rates in Dallas, TX? If possible I'd like to know what people are paying for labor only for:
hang?
tape & bed?
texture?

I have an apartment complex project that is going to need approximately 140,000 sq ft of drywall work that will be subbed out, and I would like to make sure the bids I receive are in the right territory.

Also any good drywall suppliers and prices would be welcome. I'm using Gypsum Supply right now.

.14 (material) is that 1/2 or 5/8? Is that direct loads? That is a very good price....

What part of the country are you in? The cheapest I can get board here is .185 in market and .16 out of market (for 1/2") delivered.

GA. I move some rock...and pay my bill in full every month...i guess that helps. I know some contractors that are paying .170 for 1/2. how do you get rock out of market?

By in market I mean in my local KC area. By out of market, I mean 100+ miles south of here I, for some reason am able to buy up to .025 cents cheaper. Has nothing to do with proximity to the mills, but more to do with what the "market" will bear I guess. The very same board around the Lake goes for .05 more, assume that it was to do with the delivery distance, etc., as jobs are spread out much further. I really think the suppliers just gig as hard as possible until a DC says enough.

I have been in the business for 34 years and have seen the price as much as $45.00 a sheet. I can tape, bed, texture for as little as .31 per sq. ft. (labor only) and would be glad to look at the project.

I am paying .175 for 5/8 type X delivered and staged on the job, no extra charge for booking it in.

I can get it for .165, but I have to pay delivery, so it doesn't work out.

Friday I was getting a bid for my drywall, the salesmen told me there are some guys out there hanging for $2.50 a board and finishing for $2.50 a board, he said they know it is slow and figure it is best to keep busy and make something rather than stay at home making nothing.

I am not sure how much they can make at $2.50 a board.
