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.

We had two large mirrors that were pasted to the drywall. They had been in place since the early 90’s. Yoni removed both of them and repaired the drywall. He did an exquisite job and left the house tidy. Will definitely use him again.

Michael was prompt, communicative, professional, reasonable and most of all his work is outstanding. I would recommend him for any drywall work. My project was not huge by some standards -- total electrical rehab which left tons of drywall repair. You can't tell that we ever had the walls cut open anywhere. Every seam is perfect. It looks like brand new. Excellent work and at very fair price.
