Cheap Drywall?
 
Hey,
I'm looking to do my basement drywalls and I wanna know if you know where to purchase any cheap drywall any where in the Toronto,Canada area.

Look on Craigs List, get the phone book out and start calling around to bulding suppys.
Sheet rock is only about $6.00 a sheet, how much cheaper can you get?

Unless your a DW contractor that deals with a big box store (rona, HD) and buy a lot... I'm talking ... 500- 600 sheets .. you won't get a discount. There is places in the GTA that offer for 7.99 but rumour is their a lot like the chinese drywall (poisonous) although I think made out of mexico. or Find someone that got drywall that fell off a truck. :-)

If you are what you say as in a DIY you'll save the money in labour.. skimping out on material.. is not the way to go.

Hey Joe drywall sell's for 13.00 tax included up here.. I think . 7.00 in the buffalo/niagara region.. but is it really worth the headache .. with duty, taxes...etc.

Where the heck would I find drywall fallen off a truck? If I did I don't think my custumers would be satified.

That's why they make drywall tape, in case it busts falling off the truck.
