Cost for hanging sheetrock and drywall in Central Florida


We are finishing a 408 sq ft bonus room on a second floor. How much should we expect to pay a professional to hang, mud, and texture the ceiling? We already have the drywall loaded in the room.

Cost for hanging sheetrock and drywall in Central Florida


Thanks Willie,

Should I expect to be able to subtract the sheetrock cost since we have already purchased it?

The cost of sheetrock in this situation is miniscule compared to the cost of labor in this case.

What do the hangers----tapers--and scrappers charge in your area?

Without seeing the room---the number of windows--off angles---house protection It's hard to say.

I frequently have a $400 charge for protecting the carpets--stairs and hallways----and curtaining off the finished parts of the house---plus the actual hanging--taping and scrapping out of the drywall drops--and a junk hauling fee if there is not a dumpster on site.

Seriously ---call a drywall crew and ask them.

I received one very fair price at 950.00 from a local guy. Smooth walls and knockdown on ceiling.
The other 3 companies never returned my call. It's a fairly simple job with no windows or ceiling pitch, 30 x 12 room.

Have you seen the local guys work?

Ask who cleans up the scrap--that is not usually the hanger or tapers job.

Also ask if he is providing the mud and corner beads.

Ask for references---and see them. Ask where he is working this week and can you see the jobsite.
