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.

Great work quality. He repaired bathroom fixture installations that two other people attempted and failed. They are now very strong, the drywall has been repaired and the areas have been repainted so that no one would know that any work had been done!

We are changing my 95 year old Mother’s bedroom into the guest bedroom. With the room needing some drywall work contacted some companies for quote on drywall and painting. The first company that came out quoted $579 for drywall repair and $259 per wall to paint. A friend suggested we check out Thumbtack. We contacted companies and the first to do quote was CDJ. The quote was reasonable, able to start immediately and the BONUS – the job was completed in one day, both the drywall and painting were excellent and minimal disruption during the process (major concern with caring for elderly Mother in the home).We will use this company again for other projects.

We hired Kevin for drywall and insulation removal, cleaning and replacement where there was a mold problem. He took care of the mold and completely repaired the area. In addition, he did other ceiling repairs/painting plus exterior home pressure washing. We were very pleased with all results and will gladly hire Kevin Penney again for other home repair projects. He is very knowledgeable, and responsive.

The work done by Franklin was perfect. We had some drywall repair needed bc our dog busted a hole in our wall! The repair was done in a timely fashion and for a very fair price. I was very impressed by all the steps and precise care it took and you can’t even tell there was ever a problem at all! Very satisfied and would hire again. Thank you!

If you need to match 1970 stipple, Mitchell is your guy! Flawless repair of drywall, texturing & ceiling in kitchen and closits. Very affordable. While he was here, I was inspired to redo an entire wall. He had the project finished & complete cleanup in under 4 hours.

Felipe repaired our drywall after the walls were completely damaged from wallpaper removal. His price was very fair and he was very professional. He was a very hard worker and finished the job sooner than I expected. I would definitely hire him again in the future!

Chris helped repair drywall in 3 rooms of my home. During the quoting process, Chris was very quick to respond to my initial request and all my follow up questions. The day of the job, he showed up on time and with all the necessary tools to complete the job. During the job, Chris showed great respect for my home and skill in his profession. We had to take down a kitchen cabinet to complete the drywall repair. The cabinet and the backsplash were not damaged in the process which I'm very thankful for. All other repairs were straightforward and he completed them with ease. Through no fault of his own, we couldn't completely finish the project in the allotted time because the repairs took too long to dry so we could not sand or paint it. However, that is something that I can do on my own so no worries about that. Overall, Chris was fantastic. He was very professional and I would absolutely recommend him for future projects.

Professional and tidy, Felipe completed ceiling and wall drywall repairs for us today. While ceiling patching tends to be painstaking, his rates were reasonable. He made sure we were happy with his work after completion. We'll be referring his good name to our neighbors.

I hired Mitch to repair my drywall during a bathroom remodeling project. Mitch was very detail oriented, focused on performing quality work while providing tons of extra advice related to my project. I'm very happy with the end result and I would rehire him anytime again in the future.

Franklin was quick to respond to our inquiry. He set a date for a week out and got the work done in one day. He was very clean and efficient with the work. We had 2 large holes in our living room and some texturing that needed to get taken care of. Franklin did an amazing job with the texture. It looks original and he even repaired places we weren’t aware of. I would highly recommended Franklin to anyone who needs drywall work done.
