Price to have drywall installed and price to finish it. New basement, typical room (approx 3200 sq ft of board). Level 5 finish, nothing tricky, a few bulkheads. Job is located in Peterborough.

Hi dear,

You will spend about $1.500 to 2.000 for 3.000sqft of drywall.

Consider taping and painting as well.

Have a good morning day!

Goodmorning Peter Kody from King Crown Construction Inc. I'd like to help you out with this and with everything ready to go, I.e. walls plumb/level, insulation and vapor barrier up, cost of 5/8 type x drywall, Install and putty work, it would be any where from 3 to 6$ and sq.ft. depending on material choices, ease of access and time frame. Painting would come at an extra cost.

Thanks Peter.

min rate from any reputable company that will provide a professional job and taping for a finish to paint ready is $3.50/sqft all inclusive. I never recommend hiring the cheap amateurs. walls and paint are 1st thing you notice a bad job will cost double to fix and look terrible if left.
