Hello all. I have just spent the past hour reading through the messages. Good stuff. But I need some help. I have been doing high volume residential jobs. I want to get into commercial work but have no idea what to charge. I have heard $72 - $100 a linear foot would cover metal, drywall, mud, labor, etc. I can figure this out myself but I do not know any commercial experiance people. What am I going to pay to have the tracks and metal studs installed? Is it priced per foot, wall, by the hour (if so how many linear feet should I figure should be put up an hour) I am guessing the rate I pay to hang, finish, the wall board with be the same. Any help would be great.

Prepare in lesiure for what you do in haste.

I've done commercial framing and drywall for a few years, but always for someone else. I have no idea how to bid. Sorry. I have been wanting to learn that too. Where are you located?

How did you get paid for laying and putting up the metal studs? Hourly??
