Hello. I would like my basement drywalled and taped.

What do you guys charge per square foot to only install the drywall? A general idea. (basement is empty and newly framed right)

What do you charge for the taping portion per square foot?

What do you charge for the sanding and priming?

And painting as well?

Was wondering if you could give me a general idea of your price then I can take it from there.

Thank you

I charge $1.50sq/ft to hang/mud and sand drywall as for painting usually $1.25 for priming and 2 coats of paint.

Just keep in mind that above prices are not per sq/ft of your basement, it's per sq/ft of drywall.

So 1000 sq/ft basement will come up to roughly 3500-5000 sq/ft of drywall depends on how many rooms there.

We charge per job. If you get me sizes and a little more info I can price it for you.
