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.

Ben was courteous, responsive and diligent. The best thing though was his workmanship. He patched up several areas where I had work done and the drywall needed repaired. Half the repairs included a popcorn ceiling. The repairs were flawless and I am very pleased to have found Velazquez Renovations. I highly recommend and will hire again.

Great job repairing some drywall in my hall closet and laundry room following the recent repiping of my house. He came on time, finished quickly, left no mess, did a great job.

Almost immediately after submitting my request into Thumbtack for ceiling repair and texturing, Benjamin contacted me, asked a few questions, and gave me a quote. He was able to come out within a few days and showed up right on time. He came in with shoe covers and a mask and covered every surface in my home so it would not get dirty. In less than 3 hours, he completed the job with outstanding work. He even left me a sample of the ceiling piece he removed so that I can have it matched for paint. I would definitely recommend him to anyone looking to repair any drywall or resurfacing work. Thanks, Benjamin!

Benjamin was right on time for our appointment. He is a polite and friendly person that was timely and responsive to all my communications and even came prepared wearing the proper PPE and shoe covers. Benjamin quickly reviewed the job with me and got right to work. Just about 60 minutes later the job was completed including clean-up! I will admit I was expecting it to take more time but with his 16 years of experience in doing drywall repairs, it shows. The quality of the work was such that once the repair is repainted you would never know there was a gaping 3"x 5" hole in the wall, the texture work he did was impeccable! An added bonus is that compared to several contractors that contacted me via Thumbtack, Benjamin's price quote was extremely competitive! I am extremely pleased with Benjamin's work and would highly recommend Benjamin and Velazquez Renovations.
