  • Approximate cost to repair a 5-foot crack in a wall: $125 (labor $75 and materials $50).

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.

Mondale patched a ceiling for me and repaired another patch that was not professionally completed. He quickly responded to my request for a quote and was very willing to be available at my convenience. The results prove to me that Mondale has much experience with drywall repair and painting. I am extremely pleased with the turnaround time and the end result. I recommend Mondale for your drywall repair and painting needs.

Christian and Israel did a great job repairing a poorly mudded drywall job in my garage that the previous owner had left. They also mudded new drywall that I had hung and left it ready for me to paint. They were very courteous and cleaned up after the job. I highly recommend them.

Raul was professional and conscientious and made every effort to achieve the perfect ceiling I wanted after another tradesman had attempted the repair. He also went above and beyond to complete the work in the timeframe promised. I would wholeheartedly recommend Raul and his assistant for drywall repair.

I needed some drywall repair and painting done. They were quick to come and give a quote and the quote was far less than previous ones we had received. They communicated with us throughout the entire process and the quality of the work was excellent.

John patched a hole in our drywall. He stayed a good while and was very thorough about smoothing it out and making it look as good as new. He was very professional and cleaned up afterwards. I would recommend him to anybody who needs a home repair.

All Pro Services was great! They repaired my drywall in very little time and did an amazing job. I had two large holes in my drywall, one from when I bought my condo and the other from a recessed medicine cabinet that I removed. I didn't want to do the job myself and by the time I would have purchased all of the supplies I needed to do the job it would have been more than what I would have wanted to spend for someone else to do it. Not to mention having drywall repair tools and supplies that I likely would never have to use again. All Pro Services gave me a great quote and did great work. I'd definitely use them again and I am planning on hiring them again soon to do some electrical work for me.

Justin did a fantastic job repairing a hole in the drywall ceiling from a leak. He cut out as much wet drywall as he needed to, took his time to measure and cut the replacement, did four coats of mud to ensure everything was even, sanded down, and did two coats of paint. It looks like nothing even happened and actually looks better than before. He even took his time over two days and came back the next morning so it wasn’t rushed when things still needed to dry properly instead of trying to cram into one day. He was polite, on-time, and made sure he didn’t miss any of the minor details that can make a drywall job look amateur. Cleaned up all the dust when he left, took care of everything so it looks like nobody was here. I can’t say enough great things about him and will surely be hiring him in the future if i ever need paint or drywall work. Very fairly priced estimate and excellent work!

We had a fairly large hole in the drywall of our rental home which we needed to repair quickly prior to leaving the property. The Correa Brothers gave us the lowest bid for the job, came on time, were extremely polite and respectful, completed the job within the time frame they estimated, and patched, sanded, and painted the wall and an adjacent wall. The result exceeded my expectations. I would hire these gentlemen again in a heartbeat, and recommend their services without reservation.

I can only say great job, guys. You were punctual in arriving when you promised and were very respectful of my home. The repair of the drywall in my living room along with replacing the entire popcorn ceiling was such a messy undertaking. However, the followup cleaning was impressively thorough. Your guys even helped me reposition all the furniture! I have already recommended you guys to my friends. I look forward to my next project with you.

They reached out about my drywall repair project I posted. They set up time to meet. They were on time. Took a bunch of pictures and notes and said it would probably be 2-3 days work. They said they would send estimate on a Monday, I followed up Tuesday, and received estimate on Wednesday. It was $4-5k. I told them I thought that was really high. They said they would check back with their boss. Never heard back. I reached out to someone else on thumbtack for exact same work and they quoted $700. Yikes I can’t believe how much these guys were going to overcharge.
