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.

Júnior did great work repairing some drywall in my ceiling. I can’t even tell there was a hole there in the first place. He also did a great job protecting the room from any work mess and cleaned up so well I couldn’t even tell anyone was here. Would highly recommend and will reach out again for future drywall repairs. 👍👍👍

TKO showed up on time and quickly repaired my drywall hole and painted over it. After a couple of hours of paint drying I couldn’t tell there had ever been a hole there. Great work.

Rojas LLC repaired my ceiling where holes had been cut for my new overhead lights. The work is so spectacularly done, you wouldn’t even know there were holes at one point! In addition, when my home was built, turns out they used glue to put up the drywall which was now starting sag causing cracks across my ceiling. Rojas secures all drywall back up to the ceiling and has now removed the worry that my ceiling will come done. Finally, they were so well priced, I had them also paint a small bathroom to finally get rid of the color I’ve hated for a year. I would hire Rojas LLC again in a heartbeat and highly recommend them to anyone with painting or drywall needs!

Wilson from 1st Choice painting sanded and painted two drywall repairs I had done following some plumbing work. He was on time, polite, professional, and did very high quality work. The cost was reasonable and in line with other estimates. You can’t even tell where the patch is now. Highly recommend and will use them again if I need similar work or painting done.

Regulo and his team did an amazing job repairing drywall in our kitchen ceiling. The project went smoothly from start to finish. He reached out immediately to discuss the project and get me scheduled. Once started he provided high quality work. I can’t tell where any of the holes or cracks originally were! Will use again or recommend for any future jobs.
