I'm trying to get a ballpark idea if the estimates I'm about to
receive are "decent".
I need sheetrock installed then taped and textured. Orange peel on the
walls, knockdown on the ceiling. Sheetrock screwed, not nailed.
There are 3 rooms. They are "typical" rooms as far as the number of
lights, outlets, doors and windows are concerned (game room, bedroom,
storage room). The room sizes are:
1 - 18' x 15'
2 - 13' x 10'
3 - 10' x 8'
Walls are 8' 6" high. (I assume to keep down on the seams this
requires 54" wide drywall).
The work will be done in Portland, OR.
I will not hire union workers.
From past experiences from other work I have had done, (roofing,
painting, etc.), the range of estimates is very large. So if I bring
in two different contractors for estimates and they both just happen
to be one of the "very expensive" guys, and then I choose one of them,
I just screwed myself because I didn't know the market.
I'm not looking for super-duper guy that does everything perfectly and
does work on million dollar homes and I don't want some dudes that are
super cheap and do a crappy job - So I am just trying to get a
"BALLPARK" idea of the cost of this work done by drywall contractors
that do a decent job at a median price.
Do you have any estimates for this job?
