I have an 1100SqFt space with 9' Ceilings that I need to have sheetrock
and skim coated. I just received and Estimate for $12,000.00 and that
seems a little high to me. Can anyone give me a rough idea of what
something like this might cost? Any help is appreciated and thanks.

Not intentionally, but I heard a local quote for sheet rock the other
day. Since I know the person I ask and it was only to hang the board.
The quote was for 13 cent per sf of board hung...no skim coat. These
were high ceilings (10ft). YMMV.
Hmm.. 1100 could be 133 linear feet of wall. 9 foot ceilings makes
1197 square feet of wall, plus the ceiling, that's about 2300 square
feet of rock. If 4x12 sheets will lay out right, that's 48 sheets,
bare minumum. I haven't a clue how you'd lay out 4' sheets on a 9'
I bought sheets for around $15. A friend had his place drywalled by
pros who charged damn near what I bought the sheets for - let's say $20
- including materials. The price was so close I wondered why I went
through the damn trouble to do it myself.
So, that's about a thousand bucks, absolute bare minumum, for a single
perfectly square room with efficient usage of 1/2" 4x12 sheets. In the
real world, expect the price to go up substantially. Either way, $12k
sounds way high. I'd get another estimate.
Hi I do drywall among other things. Most SF (Square Foot) prices are
very close from place to place. Im in Canada but I know US is very
similar. Rough estimate on your part would be (without seeing it)
1100SF x 4 = 4400SF this would be very close to what you actually have
Contractors price to supply install and make ready for paint (Good
This should include clean up disposal.....
4400 x 1.50 = $ 6,600.00 This includes taxes and all.
the only things that would make it extra are special features like half
inch reveals or around door chamfers or lots of bulkheads or beed work
in where the tapers work is cut out for him. If theres new to existing
well its a &(^&%( so iwould make worth my while as well and maybe add
but not 12000 dollars unless your small place is ritzy.
