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.

Excellent work and time management skills. He did a great job refinishing my ceiling drywall and painting. I would highly recommend Felipè for any household repairs.

I had Franklin repair some damaged drywall as well as replace a section that had be removed from another project. He was on time, prepared with his tools and got the job done quickly and cleanly. I was very happy with his work and would hire again.

My house is sold, and I’m working on a huge punch list of items that were agreed upon during negotiations. All that while packing and all the other things that come with a life changing move to another state. I’m down to last minute and just couldn’t see how I was going to get to the drywall repair in time. Mapaches came to the rescue the very next day after I posted the job, which happened to be a weekend day. They showed up on time, they were very professional, and knocked out a lot of work in record time. Everything looks great! Thanks

We initially hired Hugo and his crew to help with drywall repair in our basement. He offered a very reasonable quote, was prompt and easy to schedule with, and his guys did a great job. We then hired him and his crew to help paint our house. They worked very quickly so we could move in time. There were a few touch ups we requested where they missed some detail work, and Hugo came personally to make sure everything was as we wanted it. I would hire him again for any handy work I need done!
