Drywall labor estimate


Having a 24x24x10' garage drywalled, walls & ceiling. Is the estimate based on total area or total area minus doors, windows and garage doors? I want to make sure fair is fair.

Honestly, how would we know? The only person that can tell you the estimate and what it includes is the contractor. Don't ever accept an ambiguous estimate. Get an estimate for the job, not per square foot which is meaningless since you have no idea how the contractor will determine sq ft.

Drywall labor estimate


Moved to off-topic since not a DIY topic
Costs vary by area, job & person doing the work
Local estimates are your best bet & have them explain how they charge

Peek at RS Means [publisher] estimate books at your local Border's. The prices are corrected for ZIPcodes. I don't know if they have a Canadian version.
