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


i think currently tract houses in florida are asking $12 to hang finish and spray. thats about .08. please note, our cost of living in florida is substantially high. not near as california but still.... this is why i entered the remodel business. i go out and find the clients that want to pay for quality.

I'm interested in what everyone here thinks is driving price/unit?

Consider $0.30/SF to hang or finish divided by .008 HRS/SF (1000 SF per day inplace productivity, includes all the tangible and intagible variables) of hanging or finishing produced = $37.50/HR to hang or finish. What is everyone's expectation of return on invested time, efforts and money?

What markets are you servicing? Residential ... Commercial ... High Rise ... Renovations, etc.?

What is everyone doing (trying new means and methods) to address the $/SF challenges experienced?

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


.35 for taping plus 10.00 per stick material included. Hanging ranges from .15 /.25 no material. same as always.That is as low as we go when subbing from bigger DWC.Otherwise we shoot for a buck or better ...some guys are down in the seventys and supplying. Hard to go that lowLow 90's is as low as we can go.

That's funny. Going rate for hanging is 20-25 here. Lately I have been subbing for 18 cents plus fasteners.

I typically get between 40 and 110 sheets in an 8 hour day at .18 with a good partner.
as for experience/sf, im sure the experienced rockers look less experie.fed when worki.g by the foot for they generally don't spend time focused on small things that would save tapers twice that long.

I hope to make minimum of $150 every day and sometimes much more but I DO live in south dakota and that small money takes me a lot further than some states.
