800 square foot basement. Drywall done. Just checking to see how much it would roughly cost if we paid someone to come in and do the mudding and taping?

I'm from Hamilton and the best prices you get out here are .50 - .60 cents to tape so 800 x .50 is 400$ or 800 x .60 is 480$ but that is all based off the total drywall up being 800 sq ft. Remember floor space is different then walls and ceiling footage combined.

Glad I could help you out!

Hi there...

800 squire feet probably means floor multiply by at least you at least 3200 sq. ft. of drywall.

Now add-in bulkheads/corner beads, etc.and you are probably looking at approx. $1.00 per sq. ft..........$3, total

How good is the boarding job ?

Pre-fill, tape and at least 2 coats to finish......then sand and touch-up.

Hope this helps.
