Most guys will want to hang it as well, the ones I know anyway. That way they are taping over stuff they did rather than the home owner. I am not trying to say you personally are a hack, but most times that is what the pros run into when they hear someone say "How much would you charge to finish tape and spray?" They will a lot of times bid it as high for finish tape and spray as they would to do the whole jobs themselves. Just something to think about.

yeah, they run into weird gaps, screws not being sunk in far enough ect.

tell them you want a bid both ways, or ask what they prefer. you might not be saving yourself much in the long run

I'm dealing with that problem right now. People wife bought house from just hung it and not well. Lots of gaps any thing that could be worry is. Redoing much of it, taping and painting myself. Finishing room that was started, going to use it for taxidermy.

I think I paid around $900 for a tape and mud job for approx 1300sq ft.

Normal tape and mud in the Rochester area will get you about $50-.75 per square foot of wall. To hang will run about another $.25-35 depending size, difficulty, etc. These are a labor and material cost.

Any crazy finishes or textures would be more.

There are guys out there that just do the taping and mudding. I know of a few that used to hang but are older now and only want to tape and mud.

$1500 to hang and tape my basement 3 years ago in shakopee. About 900 square feet. WELL WORTH IT. They were in and out in 4 days. Time and minimal Dust were the biggest savings.

I agree. If you're working regular, think of the time you won't have to take off work or lose on the weekends and nights with your family/whoever. Or that you could work overtime to pay for the drywallers and then some. Plus, the taping and mud are tedious, time-consuming jobs that are difficult to do right like the pros. I'm all for do it yourself but drywall is one of those things I'd rather leave to the pros.

I'd have them do the whole dealio.....seems almost cheaper in the long run.

it's not much more for them to hang and the contractors would prefer to tape/mud their own work, not a homeowners.

I hung my own and it takes longer than you might think, if you want to do it right. Cutting for outlets is tough also.

    • I wouldn't be surprised to see Fletch pull something during the "break". That would give that person time to come in and get acclimated to the surroundings. I am sure the players will be having some "skates" along the way, but no organized team activities. They cannot even practice until after 5:00 the day before their first game back! That is why the results are so poor coming out. Its one thing to skate, scrimmage-like, but practice is a completely different animal and I am pretty sure the players are not going to voluntarily "bag skate". I think this is a big night tonight. Go into the break on a high note. Wouldn't be shocked if Kuemper started, but I would expect Dubnyk.  
    •   You've heard of the Whiskey Rebellion, I assume.   One of the first examples of federalism.   The Washington administration's suppression of the Whiskey Rebellion met with widespread popular approval.[112] The episode demonstrated that the new national government had the willingness and ability to suppress violent resistance to its laws. It was, therefore, viewed by the Washington administration as a success, a view that has generally been endorsed by historians.[113] The Washington administration and its supporters usually did not mention, however, that the whiskey excise remained difficult to collect, and that many westerners continued to refuse to pay the tax.[33] The events contributed to the formation of political parties in the United States, a process already underway.[114] The whiskey tax was repealed after Thomas Jefferson's Republican Party came to power in 1801, which opposed the Federalist Party of Hamilton and Washington.[115]
    •   Danged tootin' it was, Del-o-rama!    Sure, I no longer drink, and they finally change the law....thought it woulda been 20 years ago. That was one of the most asinine ones we've had yet. 
    •   I am concerned about the $$$. Near $20 trillion in debt and rising along with deficits predicted to rise and more and more people becoming dependent on some kind of government assistance makes me so. I'm as fiscal hawkish as you can get because math always wins,eventually, over good intentions, religious beliefs, and emotionalism. It's one of the main reasons I didn't vote for Trump. I am waiting to see his first budget proposal if he can eventually get around to it between his Tweeting and whining. If he eventually does make real budget cuts and proves me wrong, he'll get my vote in 2020 but time will tell. Both the welfare and warfare state will need slashing   Someone mention further increase in automation. It will be interesting to see how that effects these programs and government spending over time. Taxing robots probably won't work but they will mean fewer workers will be needed, especially low and mid skilled workers, to do the same job.
    • Sweet!  Ill be posting a report from our 3.5 day trip over the weekend.  In the Canada section.    Question for you.....we saw a Cadillac Escalade with tracks and a big walleye decal on it.....was that the Blackwater Cats guys?
    •   So the pee pee video stuff will or won't come out...?
    • Just blows my mind to be honest why we allow such a good state to be so far behind in regards to laws. Why we can't use more than one rod in summer is crazy..
    • Jim, I have an Ion and love it but given the choice today I can understand your hesitation in the decision. I'm not sure I wouldn't lean toward the Fuel and KDrill. Reverse is a must so Strikemaster would be out for sure. Reverse isn't the end all for cleaning slush, I still use a slush copter, but it does allow you to clear the slush on the drill and not have to bring it all up into the house. Either way you'll have a great combination. The Fuel drill is a nice thing to have around, it's a drop dead brute, unlike anything else out there!
