Making a Drywall Contract
Whether your project is big or small, draft a basic Drywall Contract before the work gets started. A Drywall Contract is a legal agreement between the property owner and the independent contractor specifying details like project scope, deadlines, costs and materials. Put together a Drywall Contract with our simple question and answer process that records all your information and generates a final document that both parties can read through and sign.
While you may not need to have a specific license to do drywall work, the state where you live may require you to obtain specific licensing or permitting before you can do work in the state. Anyone who is considering a sole drywall business should work with a lawyer to review the legal requirements, including bonding and insurance guidelines before seeking work as a drywaller. Most drywallers can get started by working with a company who is already established to obtain the necessary experience and certifications before going out on their own.
A drywall contractor's salary may depend on a number of factors, including where they operate and what type of properties they work on. Typically, contractors who do primarily residential drywall installation will not earn as much as those contractors who focus their business on commercial drywall installation. A rough estimate might be $50K per year for the average contractor.
For those considering a drywall business, you should be prepared to invest in your own tools. These tools may include ladders, scaffolding, stilts, sanders, trowels, and hawks. Additionally, you will want a vehicle which can carry the tools you need to complete the jobs you are going to be working on. If you have more questions about starting a business, it can be helpful to consult a lawyer who has experience in the state in which you plan to operate.
Often, the best way to hire the right person for a drywall job is to seek recommendations from friends and family. Checking online reviews and arranging a short interview can also help you understand if they have the experience to complete the job you have planned. Once you have settled on the contractor that you'd like to hire, make sure you have a Drywall Contract in place to ensure both of you have a clear understanding of the scope of the work to be completed, the time to complete the work, and the cost of the job.
