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.

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.

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 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.

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.

Guillen Drywall did fantastic work repairing damaged drywall caused by a flood in our laundry room. It wasn't an easy job, especially since the room is so small. Jonathan @ Guillen Drywall responded quickly after I posted and was able to do the repairs that afternoon. He brought all the needed materials and got to work immediately. He was efficient and careful. I would definitely recommend Guillen Drywall.

I’m so happy I chose to go with Roberto for my Drywall repair project. We had some water damage from a faulty toilet and had to have the carpet removed and about a foot of drywall all around the base of the bedroom and closet removed. Looking for someone to repair the drywall was becoming a headache. I had 3 different construction companies come out and quote me a price that was absolutely crazy!! I decided to come to thumbtack and came across Roberto’s page. He had all five star reviews and I saw reviews that included drywall repair so I sent Roberto pictures of my project. He responded quickly and quoted me an amazing price!! I also needed insulation and he gave me another great quote. I decided to take the chance and so glad I did. Roberto showed up on time bright and early. He had on a mask and was very neat and tidy while he was working. The whole project took a little over 5 hours it looks amazing, smooth and ready for paint. If you are looking to have any drywall repair look no further. You have found the right man for the job. Will definitely hire him again and will be recommending him to anyone that needs drywall repair! Please look at my before and after pics and judge for yourself!

Excellent experience with Freivin! He was so friendly and answered all my questions. He came out today to do a drywall repair, and he was highly professional and prompt. He has outstanding professionalism and excellent workmanship. He showed up at the time scheduled and matched the texture to the wall perfectly, even though the rest of the wall has an old textured paint flattened over the years. The quote he gave me was very reasonable, and it was worth every penny. I was also impressed with the way they prepped the work and cleaned it up after he completed it. I highly recommend Freivin for drywall repair needs.

Ari was terrific. He was very communicative leading up to the project and was right on time to complete the job. This was my first time using Thumbtack and it was a huge success due to Ari. If i ever need drywall repair or painting in the future, i will only use Ari.

Ari was very communicative, professional and efficient. He responded to my questions very quickly, was very polite and has clean craftsmanship. His work quality is top-notch and I’m very happy with the results. I had a drywall repair done in 2 rooms and it looks good as new. He was respectful of the space and I would definitely go to him again for any similar repairs!

I’ve attached Before Photos and After Photos. Jose came right after I messaged him on Thumbtack to repair my drywall problem. Our contractor tore my countertop and left my wall a mess for my tile and countertop contractor to install new tile and countertops. They wouldn’t even repair as they said it wasn’t their job. Luckily Jose came and patched it up right away. He wore a mask and was professional and efficient. Highly recommend!

I had Ari come out for 2 days worth of drywall repairs and he did an amazing job. Called him back a second time and was able to accommodate me same day. Very responsive, left the workspace clean, and a really nice guy. Would definitely hire him again for any future work.

Great thing about Eddie is he helped me out every step of the way without actually coming over. Nature of the work required was fairly simple so he simply guided me thru the steps and I was able to pull off DIY for the drywall repair I needed. He didn’t charge me single penny for consulting. I would definitely recommend him for any projects you have.

Loved these guys! I own a 4-plex and, as a result, hire a lot of different types of workers. Alferez painting have been some of the top guys I have hired. They were easy to communicate with, laid-back, professional, tidy and delivered high quality work. I have already asked them to quote additional jobs for me because I don’t want to work with any other painters! In addition to painting, they repaired some drywall and matched textures and everything was top notch. Hire them!

Bryant repaired my plaster walls in my old home after I had a closet demolished from my kitchen. He was initially hired to clean up the walls and ceiling around a wooden beam. I failed to mention to him that the walls were 2 different depths, with about 1.5” difference, but he picked up different materials from the store including a corner and adjusted nicely. Next I wanted him to clean up the ceiling drywall around a beam, but little did I realize this “beam” was just a 2x4. So Bryant suggested cladding it with wood which was a great idea. He bought mahogany and cut it seamlessly, walls and beam install took 2 days. Bryant was amazing at being flexible when the homeowner (me) didn’t really get it or changed her mind midway through. He’s very patient and does great work. Kitchen is still in progress but check out Bryant’s work in the photos attached.
