Contractors, have you ever paused to calculate the true cost and effort involved in the final installation of drywall? Whether you are deciding to hire a drywall contractor or considering a DIY approach, it’s crucial to take various factors into account that contribute to the overall expenses and labor.

If you choose to handle the project yourself, here’s a glimpse of the process:

  1. You’ll need to visit a local drywall supplier to purchase an extensive drywall sheet along with screws, Drywall Steel Studs & Framing, mud, drywall tape, sandpaper, primer, paint, a roller, and painter’s tape.
  2. Additional expenses include transportation costs and the time spent acquiring the required materials.
  3. If your project involves multiple floors, you’ll have to deal with the logistics of transporting materials, potentially using elevators.
  4. The installation process entails cutting and fitting drywall sheets onto Drywall Steel Studs & Framing, which can be labor-intensive and time-consuming.
  5. There may be instances of wasted or unused drywall, resulting in additional costs for discarded material and garbage disposal.
  6. Applying multiple layers of mud and drywall tape is necessary, followed by a waiting period of about 24 hours for drying before sanding.
  7. The installation of painter’s tape is required to protect adjacent surfaces during painting.
  8. Applying primer paint and waiting for several hours before proceeding with the first coat of paint are essential steps for a professional finish.
  9. Waiting for the paint to dry again before applying a second coat is necessary to achieve the desired appearance.
  10. Lastly, the removal of all painter’s tape adds further time and effort to the process.

It’s important to consider the overall cost of drywall installation per square foot, as it can significantly impact your budget.
