There is a huge variance in pricing across North America. It seems there should be some very rich drywallers out there. I am curious how your daily production relates to your rate. Do those who make a higher piece rate produce as much as those who get a lower rate?
Compare yourself to us, here in Utah. I think we may have to produce more footage per day than anybody, anywhere, just to survive. Typically, per man, we hang 1400sf/day of 1/2" on low walls and ceilings for .10/sf or $140/day. We finish, smooth level 4, 800sf/day - cornerbead included, for .20/sf or $160/day.
How much (feet or sheets) can you typically hang, or finish, in an 8 hour day?
Is it high, low? 1/2", 5/8"? Smooth, textured? Hourly or piece rate?
What do you make in a day?
Where are you?
I'm talking about production work, either residential or commercial, no remodels.
No bragging, just the facts.
