This prices are for commerical? What is $ for texture and painting

Hello again

 

The prices are within 10 cents for residential and commercial, so long as the contractor is local and non-union. As I said above, painting will cost about $1.05 per sq ft And Texture will run about $1.40 per sq ft (give or take 5 to 10 cents per sq ft for the residential / commercial difference).

One more question to hang drywall is 1.15 1 sheet would be 4x8=32sqft x1.15=$36.80 a sheet?

Hello

 

The $1.15 would be to Install per sq ft, now some contractors will go as low as $0.85 cents per sq ft so its best to get a few Estimates from at least 2 or 3 contractors. Most will include taping with the $1.15 per sq ft but 95% of them won't, so hanging and taping would be included in that $1.15 if you get the right Contractor,,

 

Good Luck

I'm a paint contractor,I do remodeling and repaints but now going into new work which it's a whole different ball game. there is no union down here so will this prices be pretty competive and close to getting a job on this prices you have sent.

Hello

 

The prices that i Quoted you will not scare anyone away if that is what you are worried about, the prices are within a few cents in all states and around the country so if you think you are charging too much your not this is the rate per sq ft good luck with everything and i hope all works out for you,,

 

Thanks

I charge 1.25 sqft to buy it, load it, haul it, unload it, haul to rooms, and hang it. I charge 1.87 sqft to screen tape, setting compound 2 coats, mud skim coat- smooth as plaster ready to prime. This works out to about $40/man hour. The monopoly house developers pay about $8.00/man hour and their work is crap.
If you want to take the time for perfection and make a living, charge $3.12 sqft. People do pay for quality. There is no satisfaction or $$ in working for people who want cheap and accept "good enough". Your reputation is at stake. Your better off being called expensive, than broke with a reputation for cheezy work.
