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.

I had Home Finishers replace a foot of drywall in my basement. The repair looks great. You can tell he is very experienced with drywall and other home repair. Additionally, Eric of Home Finishers was really easy to contact, communicated really well with me, and provided the services in a timely manner. I would definitely recommend him to do a similar job or other home repair.

Keith did an excellent job on my drywall repair. I thought we were going to be delayed by a slight hidden plumbing problem, but he was able to repair that too. I would definitely like to use him again, and would refer him to others.

The Islands Painting did a great job of repairing my drywall in preparation for a back splash installation. Also did some crack repair due to settling, which was done equally well. Everything looks like new. I would recommend and would use again!

He was punctual, efficient and got the job in a timely manner. When I reached out to TJ Painting via the Thumbtack app to have a hole repaired, they responded immediately and provided a quote that matched the job I needed done. I highly recommend this company for your painting and drywall repair needs.

Rescue House responded to my inquiry right away and were able to schedule me for exactly when I wanted the work done. They provided an accurate quote up front. The work was completed within the quoted amount of time and was done very well (drywall repair).

Cristian was very professional and quick to respond at all hours of the day. The total price was better than another quote I got to repair drywall and the quality was pretty good. I don't know much about drywall but I think its typically hard to match the same color and texture. Since it has dried, I can tell that part of the ceiling has been patched because it looks a little different so thats the reason for 4 stars instead of a perfect 5.

I would highly recommend Bowersock Texturing to anyone who is need any type of drywall repair done. Braxton came to our house and he completed the job more than we could have asked. He went above and beyond what he had to do and we truly appreciated it. They are so easy to work with and they worked around our schedule so that we didnt have to take off work for the repair to be done. If we ever needed work done again, without a doubt we would hire them again.

Miguel’s work and years of experience speaks for itself! There was nothing he could not do to perfection on my list of drywall projects. Our cathedral ceiling bedroom no longer has a crack in the seam. And he matched the texture as if nothing was ever a patch or repair. On a different level of our home Miguel repaired a water damage ceiling. He cut out the ceiling and replaced while matching the ceiling texture with no problem. Additional work on bedroom walls to prep for painting was completed and all was finished without a trace of dirt. Miguel was early to work. Excellent!!

I was very impressed with Forests painting! Oscar responded quickly and came out within a day to provide an estimate. He did an excellent job on the drywall repair. He was extremely professional and produced great product. He also took his shoes off prior to entering which I thought was extremely considerate, wore his mask , practiced social distancing and cleaned up immediately after the project was finished. I would highly recommend Oscar Callabero of Forests Painting !!! Thank you!
