Frequently Asked Questions

  • Introduction

    Drywall contractors add the finishing touches to a home or business' new construction or renovation project. These professionals attach sheets of drywall to the studs that form the framework of inner walls to create the wall. They typically also finish seams between sheets of drywall so everything is smooth and ready to paint.

    In addition to hanging drywall on walls, some drywall contractors also finish ceilings and apply decorative spackling. Most of the work performed by this type of contractor needs to be covered over to complete an interior renovation project. This might be done with either paint or a layer of wallpaper.
  • How much do drywall contractors make?

    The median pay for a drywall installer is $48,830 per year. This breaks down to an average hourly wage of $23.47 for drywallers who work 40 hours a week year-round. Drywallers who offer specialized services, such as taping, earn a slightly higher average wage.

  • How do you become a drywall contractor?

    On-the-job training is the typical route to becoming a drywall contractor. This can be done as part of an apprenticeship program or in a less formal work setting. Drywall contractors who own their own businesses might also take business management courses.

  • How much do contractors charge to hang and finish drywall?

    Contractors charge either by the sheet for drywall projects or by the foot for custom projects. It typically costs around $30 to have each sheet of drywall installed. Custom drywall jobs are charged at around 50 cents per foot.

  • Do you tip drywall contractors?

    Drywall contractors aren’t typically tipped for performing contracted work. However, if asked to perform tasks outside of the contract, it’s common to offer a tip for the additional services requested. It’s also okay to offer a tip if exceptional service was provided even if it isn’t standard to tip professionals in this industry.

  • Can a painting contractor demolish drywall?

    Painting contractors don’t normally demolish drywall, but some contractors perform both services. Drywallers typically perform all the steps to get the wall ready for painting. Painters then take over and put the finishing touches on the walls.

  • Do drywall contractors do trim?

    Drywall contractors don’t typically do trim unless they are also painters. This is because the trim is usually put in place after the paint has dried, and drywallers generally specialize only in installing and finishing drywall.
