By the way when I said New House I meant it's new for the homeowner... I don't think the house is actually new.... don't know if that makes a difference or not. Anyway thanks!
Wow! That was cold, brother. You could have just exited and ignored the post if you didn't want to give a respectable response.here's how you go about this...............
DON'T BID SHIIT THAT YOU DON'T KNOW HOW TO DO!!!
and if you respond, I know how to do it, just not how to bid it, then what you are really saying is you don't know what you are doing because bidding is a part of the job!!!
If I do drywall, and I rarely do, I bid per sheet, so much to hang, so much to finish, i don't paint. Ever! So that's on someone else. I HATE PAINTING.... i even asked my buddy that's a painter how the hell he can stand doing it...How am I supposed to learn if I don't at least try it? BTW I do know how to do it, just not how to bid it :laughing:
Anyway any real help is appreciated.
Measure all wall and ceiling square footage, divide that number by square footage of panel (4x8 = 32 sq/ft, 4x12 = 48 sq/ft, 4x16 = 64 sq/ft.). Take into account corner bead, screws, adhesive, 10-15% extra drywall for cuts, etc., joint compound, etc.Now, how do I go about knowing how many sheets of sheetrock I need to bid this job out? I don't need prices (how to price each sheet put up, finished and etc)... I just need to know what process you guys go through to price a job like this... it's a ranch house, about 2,000 sq ft. Any help is appreciated. Thanks!
