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.

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!

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.
