I did not read this entire thread.. just noticed your post. I am charging the same rate as you are. Only problem,,, the guys that come around and work for cheaper . they keep the prices down. and builders love to shop for every penny they can save. anything lower than what I am working for . is a really bad eyesore around these parts. and you cannot charge for any extras ..like high work.. or the builders scream bloody murder.. I'm just taking what I can get. do the best I can .. L3 no cleanup ,,, Had a builder drop me over floors not being scraped.. this was after being told our cost is for what goes on the cieling and walls.. and we are not getting paid for cleanup. The house looked really nice ..should have placed it in writing.. some guys are thick skinned. but he did get us as a reference and he did know what he was getting from the start. If i would have put in extra for cleanup I would not have got the job . It really amazes me how spoiled these builders are. Instead of asking how much for a L4 finish or other quality products they only want the bare minimum.. and I give it too them.. Just a decent construction grade finish.
that's why it makes me wonder.. when I see guys posting about using new products that are expensive to use.. I don't put on any Hot mud materials or fancy flex tapes without charging more for it.

Re: What's the going rate to hang rock?


Funny how GCs don't allow "extras" like high pay,etc but believe they can ADD extras for free like change orders,rooms that weren't to be hung yet now are,etc etc etc. Don't you love when you price a job and when you go back to hang it there are now arches in every opening,windows/doors wrap or there are more rooms than when you bid it?

Re: What's the going rate to hang rock?


$/SF = $/HR x HRS/SF produced. What's the going rate? What's the rate of productivity? What is being produced in 8 hours and/or 480 minutes and/or 28,800 seconds a day? What are the producers producing and what are the looters and moochers giving for what they take from those producers?

Re: What's the going rate to hang rock?


Production for drywall is based on 1000 SF per man day and/or (.008 HRS/SF)
$/SF = $/HR x HRS/UNIT produced hang or finish

Ideal Philadelphia Union Contract Rate
$93.75/HR x .008 HRS/SF = $0.75/SF

Wages account for 40% of the labor rate
$93.75/HR x .40 = $37.50/HR x .008 HRS/SF = $0.30/SF

Ideal Philadelphia Open Shop Contract Rate
$56.25/HR x .008 HRS/SF = $0.45/SF

Wages account for 40% of the labor rate
$56.25/HR x .40 = $22.50/HR x .008 HRS/SF = $0.18/SF

I look forward to your questions and comments.

Skillfully and Professionally
Yours in a Workmanlike Manner,

Field General

Yea and all those polish, Irish, Europe, etc guys too!. Too many of European guys out here in Chicago dropping at $4 a sheet to rock and $6 finish. I'm Mexican American but why all the tish talking? At least were out working and not looking for handouts by the expressway asking for change like all these black and white dudes. Have some respect.
