Please advise on drywall job
I just found this site a few minutes ago and this is my first post.
I own rental properties and I am hiring a drywall job done.
I am getting at least two and hopefully three bids. I would appreciate if someone knowledgeable about drywall would help me decide if these bids are fair. So far I have two back. Here is the first one. The second one did not include all that I wanted done so need to clarify that.
Here is the first bid that has been itemized. I have someone else estimating it tomorrow afternoon if all goes according to plan.
Both rooms have two doors and two windows. The living room is approximately 13 x 15 and the second room is approximately 13 x 10. I believe that the celing is approximately 8 ft tall.
Please give me your opinion, as far as what you think this should cost.
