Hi Sharon,

Some more detail would be needed to provide you with pricing.

- basement, main floor, second floor

- new construction/renovation

- insulation included

- ceiling heights

- 1425sqft is floor space

Until more detail is provided, for now I would budget 5-8 per sqft of floor space.

Thank you

Hi there,

I would be safe to say $15 a board. To install $15 and to tap, plaster n sand $15. I think right now this is the lowest in Ontario. Board cost extra. I think that's on the low end.

Good luck.
