What would you charge for this drywall job in a shop?

Not sure if this is the correct category to ask this question but here it is:
There was a drywall job which was to repair 7 large holes in drywall. These holes had to be cut out to replace new Pex line. The holes were large..averaging 24"x24". These holes had to be repaired by filling in with new dryall, taping floating and sanding in 3 steps, 6" knife, 10" and 12". Then had to match the old texture which was a knockdown. A drywall spray hopper was used. The had to prime and paint it to match. How much would you charge for a job like this?

I've done some drywall work and I'll bite. If someone approached me with what you described I would be between $1000 and $1500.

Figure it is three trips the site minimum.

Re: What would you charge for this drywall job in a shop?

I've also done lots of drywall work, but never professionally. Some thoughts:

* Why was a knock-down texture used in a shop? That's a lot of expense right there. Many people don't even bother mudding in a workshop, since the walls *are* going to get beat up.

* Why bother with three mudding passes if you're going to spray a texture on top of it? A decent drywaller can do a paint-grade mud job in two passes. Texture-grade mudding is even easier.

But yeah, the job you described sounds expensive to me.

$400 if I get to leave after texture, $600 if I have to paint it.

True, ok two trips and $975. Because I still don't want to do this job 😀

If I have to clean up some one else's mess it cost more. If done right there should have been no need for new drywall unless the original had water damage. I have had jobs were the $1000 would not have been enough for 7 miss place odd sized holes. And I hate knock down which would add to the cost.
