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.

Thumbtack Customer
I came to know about R & R from thumbtack. I usually don’t write reviews online but after looking at Roberto’s work, I thought I should put an effort to go online and write review. Roberto gave me very reasonable estimate and he was on time for job. I hired him to fix drywall issue that we had in our home. After looking at quality of his work we decided to paint house with him. Roberto really love his job and he goes above and beyond to anything that does. He goes an extra mile to make his customer happy and satisfied. He also does carpentry work so we decide to install new doors and trim in our home. He gave a new look to our home. It took him a day longer to finish job but he did not rush to finish work. He is very professional, on-time and cover all furniture. On his final day he clean entire house thoroughly. After meeting Roberto I will not look any further in future if I need any help to fix my home. I will be recommending him many of my friends and relative if they ever need help with any repair in house.
