Does anyone know what the cost of labor would be for hanging a sheet of
drywall. A friend of a friend offered to repair a large hole in the wall of our
staircase and is not charging. I definitely want to pay him something, but am
not sure what the going rate is. Thanks for any guidance.
I have found that dry wall work is the least costly of all of the
trades. I'd suggest looking at how many hours were expended and offer a
sum based on a reasonable rate plus materials. Sounds like a good friend.
Do not insult him by paying him. Fix a "special" dinner the day he does it.
Then send a card saying thanks. Of course his family, or SO would be
Friends do not usually volunteer because the want money.

The standard rate is something like $5.00 a 4x8 sheet plus $1.00 per cut.
This is for hanging sheetrock in a new house where you are hanging possibly
100's of sheets and does not include taping.
I have no idea if repair work has a standard rate..
