Kelsey S. says, "The first photo is before, the pier was tilted with pieces rotting and scattered on the ground next to it. After, when AGP Handyman salvaged every piece they could and re-stabilized our pier in the lake! We just moved from a condo in the city to our home on the lake, where half of our pier had been left in the lake over the winter with the other half piled in the dirt by the previous owners. After a couple of months of trying to book a pier service to come out and sort out our pier mess, and a few other companies on Thumbtack telling us they couldn’t help, we finally found Blake at AGP Handyman. They were very responsive and came out quickly to take a look at the pier and confirm that they could do the job. Blake reached out to me shortly after with a quote and we scheduled a date. Of course, on the day they were scheduled to come out I had a work emergency and had to leave. The two men were extremely polite and trustworthy, and I felt completely comfortable leaving them to work alone with the house open to them. They did the whole job within 3 hours, including a store run. Blake sent me a photo of the completed work when they finished, and I sent over payment remotely. TL;DR, we will absolutely be reaching out to AGP Handyman & Maintenance for all of our future projects and wholeheartedly recommend them!"See more

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.
