Hello All, great website and forum. I really appreciate everyone's help. A little about myself... I have been planning for years as to what I want in a custom home. I just recently got very serious about it. I really look forward to joining your ranks as an O-B.

We got the feeling these guys drove Cadillacs and owned homes bordering the country club. Turns out one of them did. How we found a reasonable price on drywall. Four pages, revised and updated with new reader tips, web links and comments.

Topics Include:

  • Smooth vs. textured finish
  • Greenboard vs. cement board vs. Denshield for baths
  • Do your own drywall?
  • Risks of DIY
  • Drywaller price gouging

Excerpt from Report:

"...Q: What do you suggest for a good job?

A: My partner lives in the Riverbottoms. Good framing is needed. We have two crews of hangers. Main crew is eight guys. We have a stringent drywall nailing code. And there is an inspection before we tape.

A: Be careful of open corners that framers don't close because it's a problem to drywall that. We use vinyl bullnose. We stock the house two weeks before rocking, so the drywall acclimatizes.

A: Your personnel, employees, how much they have done. Being meticulous. You can do a lot with drywall. Round corners, round walls. We have new sheetrock that bends without wetness.

A: Texture none to orangepeel you have to hang it correctly. Goes back to framing. Have a great framer, squareness. Sheetrock can only look as good as the framing below it. Rakes and vaulted ceiling are complex.

A: 11,000 - 12,000 feet of sheetrock. $6-7,000 of sheetrock. I lose 5-7 cents per foot when he buys the rock. If it's cleaner, and I can get in and out, I'll let you know. Fifty-five cents a foot. If he supplied the rock and the hanger, I would then charge him between 25-27 cents. If hanger wants 14 cents, the rock at 13-14 cents, that would make 54 cents. I give your construction advisor Norman 21-22 cents on a big home like his son's. You can probably save yourself a couple of cents by buying the materials. I'll tape it for 27 cents a foot. You end up calling and scheduling the hangers. You could take 57 cents to the bank at the worse scenario."...

Sample Reader Tip Excerpts:

"It's a good idea to mark on the floor with spray paint where every outlet is located so the drywallers can pinpoint them."
Steve & Maria J.
Provo, UT

"We remodeled our master bath. The quotes I got for drywall on a tiny bathroom were incredible. And that's a trade that doesn't require a high I.Q. But everyone is so busy."
Joanne & Jerry C.
