I live in Northern California and just recently started working for myself as an independent carpenter. I was wondering if anyone could help me. I need to know the going rate per square foot to hang/mud/tape drywall. I appreciate your help. Thanks.

regards, TjK

Sorry I can't help ya with that kinda pricing. Ask prowallguy. I've given advice on various types of estimating, after all it is all the same. Labor+material+overhead+profit=cost I'd hate to write out the book again but you can find your answer with a search, I am sure.

Labor only I used to get 5.00 to hang and 5.00 to finnish a 4x8 board. Materials very and fluctuate too much per region for me to give you a figure on that. That rate is about 8 years old also. But I was getting that just north of you in Roanoke so maybe it could be a good place to start. good luck

I think that's per board or 32 sf. The current estimate I received for drywall is at .79 / sf for labor and .86 / sf for material. That's with a little extra added on for any errors in takeoffs to cover my butt.

new work 1/2" $1.19 per sq. sf plus $229.00 per job cost
for years i,ve used home tech remodeling and renovation cost estimator.
1-800-638-8292 it,s my bible its also adjusted for any area you live in here in marin co. we have hi overhead. spend the money for the book ,not software [way too expensive] the prices may seem a little high but use them good luck( 40 years in the trades )-driftwood
