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.

Eric has done several jobs for me in the past, but I lost his contact information. Fortunately he popped up on Thumbtack and I reconnected with him. During the time period I was unable to locate him, I got several other estimates, all higher than Eric's quote. I called him when I was ready for the drywall repair and he made an appointment for two days later. Even though he has a ways to travel, he was at my door before 8am, ready to go to work. As always, the work he did was exceptional, the walls he repaired are perfect, you can't tell they were ever damaged. I wouldn't waste my time getting other estimates in the future, Eric will always b e my first call. I recommend him highly.. Hire him and relax, your repair will be done perfectly, quickly and for a fair price. I'm attaching two photos, the before where a mirror and vanity were removed, the second after Eric preformed his magic.... The before shows only a little of the dame done when removing the vanity and a huge mirror, the after picture speaks for it's self, all I needed was a paint brush...!! Thanks Eric
