Hey I once worked a job cleaning up the USG plant in Portsmouth NH...
They were prepping for a new line...
We cleaned out where the old line was...
Huge ovens...
Anyway...
Pay a flat rate if they bite good...
If not hire it out...
Those FC do a great job...
The good ones are worth their weight in gold...

This might help...
Based on zip...
Read the datails then subtract for the non-pro aspect...
This will be the high end...
Yes the zip is real...
MIB had the PO as a lighthouse... :shock: :lol:

$75 per hour for labor? Guess I'm in the wrong business.

Around here $8.00 to $10.00 a sheet for guys that know what they are doing. 2 man team can hang 120 to 150 sheets a day. Been a while so that price may even be high, no work lots of workers. Good Luck, NWB

Down here you have to speak Spanish....Si? I have seen good work and outright horrible drywall. The houses are so crooked that it would be a nightmare to hang anyways.

I know that even today, I'd be damn grateful with $8 to $10 a sheet & put up 100 in a FULL day, of course the concept of gratitude seems to have REALLY died somewhere along the road :( --don't feed into these kids thinkin they're worth way more then they are--

OK, 150 sheets at $10 a sheet is $1,500. Assume a long 10 hour day, that is $150 per hour. Since it is a two-man team, that is $75 per hour per person, just what the online calculator said. But I’m confused. Does the $10 a sheet include the finishing? Or just hanging it?

Oh rb--calculator huh???--2 guys $5.00 each per sheet--JUST putting it up--one of the pitfalls of getting rickety--it's 5/8 & it's heavy work initially. PS--those kids aren't going to hang 100 sheets per day---that's an experienced team

Oops! :oops: Yeah, I looked back at the calculator that CapeCoaler pointed to. More like $35 to $40 per sheet for the finished job.

Damn rb--all them prices gotta be based on GEOGRAPHICS more then anything else--I'm sure they would float in Syracuse or Binghamton--but you'd get tarred & feathered throwin those numbers around in Freetown

True. Here too, but where I live is a mix that has changed over from rural poverty to yuppy bedroom communities. If you get workers who grew up poor out in the country like we did, you find pretty reasonable prices. If you get the contractor driving a $70,000 pickup truck, you get prices that reflect his life style rather than mine. :P

Heh heh! I see that here also. Guys driving the latest huge diesel monster and a big new 24 ft. trailer. And then people say I want to much to do a good job. I have met some of these guys and they are not old enough to be my kids. (Mine are 32) Networking, networking, networking......... working on it.
