Thao Nguyen- T. says, "Alex helped our family clean a lot of junk, weeds, and leaves from our property. He came over with his family and cleaned very efficiently within one day. I also had an issue with the downspout leaking and they found it was due to being clogged with leaves. His girlfriend did a great job cleaning up the weeds in the front of the house. His brother did a great job installing leaf gutters and ridge vent on the roof (to help provide the attic heat). His father helped haul a lot of junk off the property and provided good tips on dehumidifying the attic. When my lawn guy was out of town and didn't show up, Alex brought his lawn mower to cut up the leaves that were blown earlier in the week. They also helped purchase materials for the job (ridge vents, leaf gutters etc.) and will listen to your feedback to finish the job until you are happy. I was surprised by how handy his family is and they can do a lot of house property maintenance. They are also a trustworthy family as I couldn't be on the property so they sent me pictures as the work was in progress or when it was completed. If Alex was late in the morning, he would text me that he was on the way. I really appreciated this. He did show up to get the job done correctly which is most important. Alex has been doing handyman work with his dad since he was 9 so his family has a lot of experience. I highly recommend Alex and his family for any property maintenance needs."See more

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.
