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.

Put in a request for drywall repair for my closet and Ahmed immediately responded to request and said that he could get the job completed same day. The drywall repair was done very well and they completed job by patching with mud, reattaching drywall with screws, and painting the closet. It took them about 3 hrs and the job was done very well. Definitely happy with the quality of the work by Ahmed and his partner.

We need drywall to be replaced after having a leak repaired in the ceiling. Would never be able to tell there was a giant hole in the ceiling after D&E was done.

Had an emergency drywall repair that needed to be done ASAP. Ahmed responded to my thumbtack project within 15 minutes and was quick to respond when I called. He came out within a couple days, removed damaged drywall, placed drying equipment and had drywall repaired all in 24hours. Price was higher than other quotes, specifically for the drying equipment and drywall removal, but we were willing to pay extra since he made himself and his crew available on short notice and completed the job so quickly. Would have given 5 stars, but have not received receipt for 2 checks written as requested several times. Otherwise, would highly recommend, especially if in a time crunch.
