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.

Daniel came to repair drywall in my bathroom after I had to remove and replace drywall in order to replace my bathtub. I also had some other areas that showed cracks. He did a fantastic job and there is no evidence that a repair took place. He also painted the walls and ceiling and did a great job. When he was done, everything was clean. No dust, no debris. I would highly recommend Daniel.

Jarred was a pleasure to work with since I reached out to him on the app. He laid out what the process to repair my drywall would be, giving me enough clarity to move forward with his services. He got here on time, took me through the process once again, and started working. He was extremely punctual and his work speaks for himself. I will most definitely use his services in the future without thinking it twice.

Jim did a great job repairing and painting our water damaged drywall in our half bath. He was very responsive to my initial message and throughout the process. He walked us through our options and made the whole experience very easy for us in general. Once we set a date for the job, he stuck to it without needing any reminders and has a very high quality of work. Knocked it out in in a few hours over the course of 2 days and even gave me some consultation on other water damage we happened to have in the house too. I will be using Jim again soon.
