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.

Shaun did an excellent job repairing a hole in our living room drywall. He showed up on time (driving through Atlanta morning traffic), got right to work, and thoroughly cleaned the area after he finished up. He even offered to repaint the patched drywall. Would definitely hire again for any future jobs.

I had a flood in my condo and I had to get a large chunk of drywall taken out of multiple walls and ceilings. Franklin and his team came exactly when they said they would and did an incredible job fixing everything. I’m so grateful to have my walls back! I highly recommend Franklin to anyone needing drywall repair.

Prompt response, reasonable pricing, quality work. There was a problem on my end that hindered the drywall repair. Todd and his crew worked around it and agreed to return to finish when I resolved the problem blocking completion.

Todd was amazing ! Hired another guy through thumbtack for drywall repair for my business and he did a terrible job. Resubmitted the job through thumbtack and Todd was here the next day - on a Sunday. I was able to meet my business deadlines and have quality work done. Highly Recommend!

The guys repaired the drywall in three rooms in my home. It was a tedious job, but they got it done. I am happy with the final results. The work took place over the course of three days. They always left the work area clean after each “shift.” I would highly recommend this company.

I contacted Quijada the day before I needed work done. He came out the next day and beautifully patched drywall holes. He painted the repairs and now I can't even tell where they were! His price was also reasonable. I will absolutely use him again.
