What do you need for drywall repair?

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.

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 you need a license to repair drywall?

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.

I really liked the work from “Pro-elite drywall services” for drywall repair work! They were very reasonably priced, and I got at least 3 quotes. It is not only about the price, but the quality of work. I’m very happy with the result! Miguel and Francisco did an amazing job to reconstruct the drywall that had been demolished after a bad water damaged. After they finished, they cleaned the whole area. I definitely will have them as my go-to for drywall repairs. Highly recommended!

Danny did a great job, on-schedule and completely repaired 3 large holes in drywall that were made due to plumbing repairs at a rental property. Danny coordinated with the tenants and took care of all the materials, repairs, texture, paint, cleanup and sent pictures of the completed work. Danny was able to completely restore the area from being severely damaged to looking new. Thanks Danny for your meticulous work, professionalism, coordination and attention to detail.

Hugh was a pleasure to work with and did excellent work. He was early for our appointment, and came prepared. He is a true craftsman, and cares about the quality of his work. He was also very clean. We had him repair water damage with the plaster/drywall surrounding our fireplace, and he also helped me repair some additional items that i had not noticed. He took the time to do the job right, and the finished product was excellent. I had a very good experience, and I highly recommend Hugh. Beyond being good at what he does, he is a very nice guy too. I will absolutely use Hugh James again for painting/drywall and other items around my house.

I couldn't be happier with my experience. Travis responded quickly, gave me a very reasonable price, was on time AND friendly to my family and pets. I added an additional project while he was there and he got that work done as well. The walls look great and I will call him again to repair drywall and paint in the future.

Jason was easy to communicate and work with. He was very responsive and able to commit to an appointment quickly. He arrived on time and completed the work exactly as we discussed for the same price he quoted. I would recommend him for any drywall repair project and would work with him again in the future if his services were required.

I originally hired Juan to repair the drywall that was a large hole in a wall and involved adding supporting wood. I soon discovered that Juan is a master craftsman with attention to details that far exceeded my expectations. I then hired him to complete a number of other projects around my home that required the use of multiple tools and skills. He worked very quickly, and the areas were spotless when he was done. Thank you!

I couldn’t be more pleased with the great job Danny did repairing drywall that had been left badly damaged after removing a fireplace mantle and bannister. He took his time and really worked to make it perfect. Without any advance notice, he also offered to lay a line of tile where the mantle had been, using his lunch break to go get the supplies he needed for that job. He’s personable and friendly, and his prices are very reasonable. I was so impressed with Danny’s work product, friendliness, professionalism and great pricing that I’ve asked him to paint some areas of my home and my kitchen cabinets. I plan on calling Danny for all my future home jobs.
