How much time should take to mud/tape drywall
 
I'm planning to hire a professional to mud, tape the walls in my basement. The room consist of one 18' long wall, one 10' wall with one door (36") and one 8 feet wall with 2 doors (36" each) using 5/8 drywalls. The ceiling use 4x12 drywalls sheets and are about 24'Lx10Wx8'H.

All the 3 walls need to be mudded and taped on both sides.

The room has a rectangular shape. I was wondering how long would take an experienced drywall professionalto complete above job. Also what would be a fair to pay for above service or cost x sft considering that the drywall was hanged properly.

Thank you

To many variables to answer this

This will answer this question and nothing else. I would be as much concerned with a quality job over the speed involved. cost to install and tape averages about $.35 - .65 per square foot. Cost to tape someone else's work could cost just as much to tape only. DIY rarely understand the little things that make work harder for the taper.
