I know pricing questions are frowned upon here, and I know everyone's pricing is different, but I'm mainly a roofer, pricing out inside work for the first time.

I have to give a price to remove and replace probably 600 to 800 square feet of water-damaged drywall, tape and mud, and paint.

If I'm somewhere around $6 or $7 per square foot ... does that sound like I'm in the ball-park?

thanks in advance, and sorry, moderators, for my lack of discretion.

I don't think you should be even thinking about SF price. You can only do that when you have a ton of data.

If you've never done this before, just look at the job, break it down into how many days/hours, add materials, overhead, and profit, and go from there.

Remember, "I can stay home and go broke, but I'll be danged if I'm gonna go to work and go broke".

agreed

i did put my price together based on hours, i just took my result and divided by the square foot to get an idea of how it worked out

So you know it's not allowed, and still you post it?

Your best bet for that kind of info here is to PM another member who knows that trade and is in your area. Even then, the info has little value.
