Right on the money King. I am a sub for a drywall contractor. I get an address with some starting #'s . When I actually go to measure and look -the numbers change because of all the reasons you stated.This paying by the sheet isn't even close in most situations. Even sq. footage.......there are just too many factors. I think the term "going rate" better describes what an employee of a Drywall Company makes.
Lets say you got sq footage and you wanna start pricing based on that.....is the house 20 sheets or 650 sheets of 4x12...I mean the same but I say without seeing a job it's just too hard to get it down to the dollar.:thumbsup: DRYWALL LABOR IS GOING SKY HIGHTHIS YEAR I HEARD??:whistling
