    drywall sheetrock gypsum - how much a meter installed?

    Anyone know the correct price per square meter for sheet rocking? The one quote I received came out to about 325 baht a meter for foil backed board. Seemed a bit high to me, Also any recommendations for for sheet-rockers in the Lampang area would be appreciated. Thanks.

    325baht per meter is fine for one side, a bargain for both sides which normally costs 450baht per square meter.

    Call it sheetrock in Thailand and all you'll get is the deer in the headlights look. That's what I got. Not a clue.

    Foil backed for walls. Moisture resistant for the bathroom ceiling. They will need to put up the framework for the bath ceiling.

    Much appreciated. The guy that quoted 325 sounded like he was willing to bargain after I told him I would be getting other bids.

    The walls will be hung on existing wood framing. It isn't clear if they will have to add the metal batons to even it up or not.

    At home, where they use thicker sheets, they would just hang it on the wood framing and even it up with mud. and sanding.

    Same with mine Dog. I know his crew well. They do a good job. Not that it's a big deal but included painting as well.
