Name the wall, place the length, height, number of finished sides and the location of the walls from the prepopulated but totally customizable list and you’re well on the way to creating a perfect drywall bid.
Next, using the prepopulated lists, select the joint compound, tape, texturing and resilient channel that you have decided to use on the job. Enter the RC OC spacing and how many layers you’ll be installing then finish by selecting the finish labor from the drop-down list. And click add board 1. With our construction estimating software, if you require a second board for the walls, you will be offered a screen to add board 2. It’s really that easy.
