About 55 cents for me, hang, tape, prime, orange peel walls and daub ceilings, and materials.

Re: Going rates.....


For hanging I get .25 for base, never lower, and up to .64 in the Club so anywhere in there I guess depending on the project

Re: Going rates.....


Yeah.... Kind of hard to compare on this subject unless we know the difference of cost of living for people on this board...

Where I am from the average household income is only in the mid 30s and the average home price is around $165k...

Re: Going rates.....


Good point Cooper. Here we get gouged $400 000 for a simple cookie cutter house. A loaf of bread costs $4.00. Even the homes that were built 50 years ago are going for $ 350 000.

Re: Going rates.....


Hello, I need help with pricing a job. This is residential and not sure what is fair. It is about a 1600 sq ft house, picture framed 15 windows. I only finished the job, somebody else hung the drywall. They did a aweful job, butt joints like crazy, used 8ft board everywhere. I also primed, painted the whole house, trim, doors, everything. Could somebody give me any suggestions.
