What tools do you need to repair drywall?

To repair drywall, you need up to several tools and materials. For example, you may need a drill to insert drywall screws and boreholes. A drywall saw or utility knife is perfect for cutting and shaping drywall, and don’t forget your tape measure and pencil. Drywall and taping knives are also essential. 

For materials, you’ll likely need construction adhesive, drywall tape, drywall screws, masking tape and joint compound. 

If you don’t have these tools — and you don’t want to spend money on them — contact a drywall repair professional instead of doing it yourself.

Do drywall contractors need a license?

Pros may need to obtain a license to fix and install drywall. It’s always worth checking with your local government about whether a drywall company or contractor has to be licensed before they work on your project.

Who do I hire to install or repair drywall?

A general contractor, handyman or a drywall contractor (or company) can usually install and repair drywall. It’s recommended that you call one of these types of pros when your drywall needs to be repaired, such as after a plumber or electrician has completed their work. 

Look up local pros online and compare their profiles, paying extra attention to their ratings, reviews, experience and list of services. Contact three to five pros to get cost estimates for your project.

Do drywall contractors do insulation?

A drywall contractor focuses on drywall. If you want to install insulation (or upgrade your existing installation), you should hire an insulation contractor. It's possible that your drywall contractor may be able to offer basic insulation services, but for more advanced insulation installation (such as spray foam), go with a professional who specializes in this. 

How do I find a good drywall contractor?

The best way to find a good drywall contractor is by searching for the top-rated contractors near you on Thumbtack. View their ratings, and read their reviews to see how they did on past drywall projects. Pay attention to the photos uploaded by the customers and contractors, so you can analyze their quality of work. 

After you found a few contractors you like, ask them for price quotes. For more tips on how to hire contractors, read our in-depth guide.

A great licensed pro! Did a great job patching the drywall hole in the bathroom ceiling and texturing it to match the surrounding areas. They did not paint and were upfront about this. I would highly recommend them to anyone in need of repairing or replacing drywall.

Alfredo was very responsive, professional, and value-driven while providing quality drywall repair. I very much appreciated his communication throughout- I knew what to expect, what to do, and what was going on. My 100+ year old damaged plaster wall was quickly repaired with new drywall by him, and his attention to detail means that it’s flush with the wall and seamless. It looks like one entire wall! Plus, he cleaned up during and afterwards, so it was easy for me to continue on painting the room!

Jose helped me out with a small drywall patch/paint repair job. He communicated well, showed up on time, did a good job, and charged me a fair price.... Give him a shot.

This was a great experience. They fixed our damaged ceiling (drywall repair and painting) so that it looks like nothing ever happened. They were efficient, their pricing was reasonable (half as much as what another company quoted!), and communicating with them was very easy throughout the process.

Getting the drywall repaired was the last step in a stressful drawn out project of replacing the range. Dave did an excellent job and the finishing made the world of difference. I also appreciate his same day availability. Will definitely use them again in the future. Thank you!

Dave did Drywall repair in my bathroom. He did a beautiful job, was very pleasant, neat and quoted me the best Thumbtack price for the work. I was thoroughly pleased with his work product I will hire him in the future for any dry wall project.

We hired Atlas to fix a large hole in our drywall. Bill came out and he was responsive, on time, polite and professional, and did a great job not only repairing the hole but painting it to match the rest of the wall. See the before and after photos below. We would definitely hire him again.

The job has nicely done. I needed repair two drywall on the last minute call. I've posted a request, got quotes in minutes and John was able to come next day in the morning. I was really impressed by his prices, punctuality, quality of work and his ability to work on my needs. He was working really fast! I would definitely ask him for help next time. Thank you, John!

Jaime and his team did a fantastic job with what started as repairing some ceiling drywall. We liked their work so much that we had them paint the entire downstairs and basement. And then had them epoxy the garage floor. All of this ended up getting done ahead of schedule. If there was any more work to do, we definitely would send it his way! Very honest, trustworthy and professional. And the work they completed was top notch.

I cannot recommend Floyd enough. He was incredibly responsive - I was able to get a same-day appointment with him. He also took incredibly pride in the quality of the work. He ended up coming over to my place 3 times just to make sure things were completely dry before applying the next layer. He is incredibly responsive, and he understood that I knew next to nothing about drywall repairs and walked me through the different layers and steps that needed to be done in order to completely patch it up. I came home to a wall that looks great! He also went above and beyond and patched other holes / issues in my drywall in different places that was not originally requested. I would definitely recommend Floyd and I will definitely use Floyd in the future.

Perfect Drywalll Finish is a perfect name for this company. Ray was responsive and dependable from scheduling through completion. I was serving as GC on my own job, with a limited timeframe, so that was a relief. Onsite, he gave a clear appraisal of what needed to be done and how long it would take. Methodical and deft, Ray took the time to solve problems so that he could leave me with the perfect finish he promised. My repair was post-water damage: but Ray patched the cut out drywall, taped and mudded. The finish is so fine you can’t tell anything was ever amiss in that room. Do yourself a favor and hire Ray.
