What is the cost of doing bulkheading in our basement by the linear foot? Framing, drywalling, taping/mudding/beading and priming.

Hi Mark,

This wouldn't be priced by the linear foot as it is dependant on more detail.

What is being painted (bulkhead and/or ceiling)?

How many linear feet in entire job (10' or 50') etc?

You should contact someone to come out and take a look or provide them with more detail in your description.

Hey mark,

For the bulkhead to be only framed is $1.65 per linear foot.

As for drywall and tapping I would not know because I'm not in that trade.
