Cheap Drywall?


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?

Cheap Drywall?


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.
