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 hired Moses to repair some ceiling drywall. Not only was his work exceptional, but he was at the job on time and actually finished the work ahead of the planned schedule. I would recommend Moses for all drywall work/repair.

Luis did a great job in repairing an area of drywall on one of my walls that needed repair. He was very responsive, available the same day to do the work, and his price was fair. I would work with him again without hesitation.

We had water intrusion damage that took out a section of our living room ceiling, and after remediation Gaitan's team responded quickly to make the drywall ceiling repairs to an area that was 10 x 10 ft, and repainted the whole downstairs ceiling.

Thomas did not do a good job repairing my exterior drywall. He did no prep around the area he was trying to repair and stained a few of my cobblestones in my driveway with concrete. Thomas said that he forgot to bring his texture sponge so he tried texturing with a blue shop towel and a paint brush. I would not recommend this handyman. Not worth the money.

I could not be happier with the results from Luis and his team. They were able to replace and repair all of the drywall in my bathroom. They handled the demo, the new install and the new texture for the walls. I am very happy and will be using Luis and his team again for future painting projects.

I was deeply impressed with the spontaneous response to my inquiry. Luis, answered all my concerns with a reasonable fee for his high quality of workmanship. A true veteran in this field of work for drywall repairs amongst other fields of work he is involved with. I highly recommend him to others and will be keeping his info on file to use him again in the near future.

Very happy that I was able to get an appointment with Paul. After seeing his work I understand why his appointments fill up fast. It was very easy to arrange an appointment time that worked for both of us & he arrived on time. He did a great job on the drywall repairs and did so at a very reasonable price. And the “icing on the cake” is the fact that he is a really nice guy. I would absolutely recommend him to any of my friends and I will be calling on him again the next time I need a pro.

Moises was simply amazing. Called for him to come and provide me with an estimate. Came with very short notice and was right on time. As for his work, best repair job that I've had done so far. This man knows what he's doing. He did such a thorough job from beginning to end. He makes sure that he is keeping everything extremely clean while his work is being done. The area of repair, he made to look like nothing ever happened, perfect texture match and he was kind enough to paint the area for me. I highly recommend Moises for any drywall issues that you need resolved. His pricing is very reasonable and his customer service is so spot on that I have nothing but positive things to say about Moises and Flor.

To say I have never worked with a better contractor is an understatement. Juan is the most honest , committed and talented contractor/ handyman I have ever worked with . I am a realtor so I have met my fair share of contractors. I hired him to paint , do drywall repair, remove a gas fireplace and install flooring in my personal home . He does not skip through anything . His attention to detail is impressive. We are at home during the renovation and him and his crew are very respectful of our home and mindful of our safety . I cannot say enough about him . He gives great suggestions and charges a fair price . He is my go to handyman/ contractor from now on. Will absolutely use him again. The guy is an artist .
