I have a ceiling that requires mud and tape.

Full disclosure - the drywall install isn't great. It's passable, but will take a little extra work to make it look smooth.

What can I expect to pay for this small job? The ceiling is ~300 sq ft.

George, if it is just ceiling I will give you a level 5 finish, for 600$.

Six to seven hundred dollars for a decent job.

Good luck with it.

$800 to 1200 sounds about right for job at size keeping in mind the larger the square footage of a job of this nature the better pricing per square foot you're going to deceive on a smaller job such as this usually a square footage price is thrown out the window and a flat rate would apply

Thanks everyone for the replies.

I'm going to roll up my sleeves and do this one myself since the pricing is a little higher than expected.

It makes sense though, it's such a small job and a pro needs to make it worth their while.
