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.

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.

Alondra and Rafael of GLC repaired holes in my dining room ceiling and refinished and repainted my front door exterior trim. The work that they did is excellent; I wish I had known about them earlier! I was particularly impressed with the ceiling drywall repair. They were very careful about protecting our furniture and carpet in the whole area where they worked, and they did a nice job of cleaning up. In addition, they are courteous, friendly, and hardworking, enduring cold outdoor temperatures and not stopping for breaks during the project's six hours. The price they charged was reasonable. I highly recommend GLC.
