  • Estimate question

    Hi guys...

    Quick question...I am doing an estimate for a labor only drywall job. 39 sheets, material on site already but I need to move it from garage to basement. One stairwell, one beam to wrap. I need to hang and finish. I've come up with a price of 1.08/sq ft. based on 1248 sq ft. (39 sheets x 32 sq ft ea.). I am in the western new york area.

    Does this sound reasonable or am I too high/low?

    For jobs 1000 to 2000 sq ft I get 1.50 a sq ft. So I would charge 1.50 less cost of drywall, and then add something for carrying the drywall downstairs.

      Depends on where you live. I pay my drywallers $0.95/sq. ft for labor and material in Phoenix, AZ.
