dry wall cost


My apologies, I didn't read the word "PAINT" (probably getting allitle bit old now D: ) and I didn't really think about my answer sooooo my new answer is that I'll need to check out the house and I'll do a real estimate. I'm guesing now around $800 for drywall? 300 for paint? IT'S A ROUGH ESTIMATE SO PLEASE DON'T JUDGE ME.

Define qualified..

I would say maybe educated?

But, wouldn't educated mean experienced, and would this sort of fall in line with the obvious but rude point of answering a question with a question when the question was so sorely asked?

Or should we just strike this as a play on words, seeing it would be completely redundant for a person to go to a Do-It-Yourself website and ask for the cost of installing and painting drywall.

Then again, perhaps we are just talking about materials here.

In that case,

about $7 to $11 a sheet of drywall (220 lnft of drywall divided by 4' sheets = 55 sheet if vertically hung. Figure in a ceiling (if it's flat) add about 32 sheets, but rather it, depends on the width of the room means less sheets and more or less finish work,, a little more for soffits - don't forget your corner beads if their are soffits).
about $15 in builder's caulk and add a little more for the ceiling
Less than $20 in screws, or nails if you like to risk it
about $7 to $14 per bucket of mud (90 min. mix for you base or 45 min if you're feeling really brave and Rapid Coat from LaFardge - for your finish coat - CANADA Rules,, you know where you can put that ****rock crap).
about $5 to $10 per roll of tape - 1 500' roll should do it, unless your doing ceilings- grab two rolls just in case (some people like mesh tape others don't, it's up to you).
about $2 to $3 for each corner bead (highly recommend - paper with metal corners, no screws necessary)
about $10 for some sandpaper
about $20 to $30 for a gal of primer (if your not to lazy to use it - should take around 2 gallons)
about $26 to $65 per gallon of paint (figure two coats with pre-tinted primer should consumer about 4 or 5 gallons. You'll have some left over.)
Ceiling paint, if they are being considered, about two gal. (runs about the same cost as primer, sometimes a little more)
Oh yeah, and the tools - about $60+ if you don't own them (you may need to ask the next question,, what tools do I need?)

What you don't spend on my over-pricing should well pay for a pizza and some Labatts Blue.

Have a good time and get about 3 friends to help out.


Ooops - one more thing,, you may want to figure about 1 week to 2 weeks depending on if you've created yourself a mess and you have the time to concentrate on it.

Sometime it just pays to hire someone to do it for you at around 2.50 to 3.50 per square foot, unless you live in Cali at a whopping $5 to $10 per sqft or more just for the drywall. I imagine the product prices vary as well.

Painting labor should be a little less, but this will very by the painter.


Yes, your simple question has turned into a technical answer in seconds. Please take some time to be more specific as I have taken the time to offer a simple answer that is helpful. I find it relaxing to help others out and also kind of rewarding when I do.

Good luck with the project. Or is it done already? How'd it come out and what would you change?
