Drywall Pricing


I have a 14 x 11 basement bedroom that needs drywall on the walls and ceiling. Ceilings are 7 foot. I'm thinking 1/2 inch drywall. Ballpark what should that cost? Everything is framed out. Thanks.

Drywall Pricing


Check local prices, not prices from who and where in the world.
Pricing varies too much from one area to another.

Drywall Pricing


Yep, too hard to tell. Drywall prices seem to fluctuate as much as wood around here. And that's just materials.

Drywall Pricing


Thank you for posting your question on the DIY Chatroom.

Questions involving pricing, such as – “How Much” certain projects cost – cannot be properly answered simply by information posted on an internet forum (regardless of how much information is supplied in a particular post).

- Pricing for materials may be determined at your local supplier(s).

- Prices for subcontracted work are best determined by getting legitimate local contractors to submit written estimates (3 are suggested) and always checking references.

We encourage you to continue to post DIY (Do it Yourself) related questions on this site , rather than "How Much Will It Cost me to Pay someone...." type questions.

Drywall Pricing


That's a good point on local pricing. Chicago drywall contractors are going to charge you a lot more than Indianapolis drywall contractors. I think it's a great idea to get three bids and evaluate the price (amongst other factors).

Drywall Pricing


I'm in west Michigan. Ballpark. Within 30% either way. And, I get it this is not a DIY question - this is a do I want to DIY question.

Drywall Pricing


I understand, but I have no idea what material/labor prices are in your area, nor would any other contractor on this site unless he were in your IMMEDIATE area. Prices can vary even from county to county (as building codes differ). Your best bet ( unless someone in your area replies) is to get a couple of estimates from contractors (with references). Then you can weigh you options as to whether you want to tackle it yourself. It IS a big undertaking if you've never done this, but as many can attest to on this site, it is "do-able". You can try posting on drywalltalk.com and see if you can get a response from a contractor in your area. Sorry I can't be of more help....
