Q & A

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

How much will it cost to fix a hole in the wall?

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

However, you should request cost estimates from drywall repair specialists in your area to figure out how much it will cost you to fix your hole.

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.

Mark repaired a 16" x 30" hole in a drywall ceiling. He repaired, taped and retextured all in one trip and did an excellent job. I would use him again.

Three-hour drywall repair, with a removable opening for plumbing access. They were timely, neat, communicated well, and the work looks great.

Michael was incredibly responsive and fairly priced!! He did a wonderful job with a variety of drywall projects in my new condo, including removing an extra door into my kitchen and re-drywalling the wall to make it smooth and flush with the rest of the wall. I would definitely recommend Michael for any drywall work/repairs needed in your house!

Michael was very good at communicating with me on my project. There was an extra plumbing repair that needed done before he did the drywall repair he was hired to do. He fixed the problem and did a great job on the repair. I have already asked him to do more work for me.

I had an emergency need for a small drywall repair, and he was the only one who could squeeze me in on a weekend. He was fast and really did great work. It's obvious he's been doing this a long time! I will definitely be using him for future drywall repair needs, as he exceeded all expectations. The price he quoted me was around half of what others did, so definitely reach out to Tibu first!

Noah and his team were quick to respond and get the job done! He arrived on time and did an excellent job with the project. His price was very fair and he was very professional. I have already recommended him to a friend who is in need of drywall repair. He will be my drywall guy going forward!

Ricardo did an excellent job patching two 10x14 holes in drywall after some plumbing repair. He got it done quickly and with a high quality of work. I’ll call him again for future projects!

We had Carlos do drywall repairs, mud-skim (older home, mix of old paneling, new drywall, old drywall/painted walls), and knock-down texture...they have come out looking great! Carlos was very conscientious about doing a good job, making sure we were happy with his work throughout. Communicated when he’d be on-site, arrived on-time, worked late to get it completed, great work ethic. Has been conscientious about clean-up too, making sure the floors, air vents, lights, etc are clean of wall mud - overall, great job and we’d have him do drywall work for us again!

Tibu did an amazing job on the drywall repair and texture, and was half the price of some quotes I received! He was very responsive and came out the next day right on time. He was also very nice and professional. I would highly recommend.

Tibu got to our center the same day within an hour of sending the request. He worked very quickly on patching multiple odd shaped holes in our drywall. The finished hole repairs were great and seamless. We will call him again for other projects!

Patrick is as professional as they come. He delivered exactly what he said he would. If you are looking for a "no nonsense" experience with drywall repair, Patrick MUST be your guy! I'm thrilled with the work and would gladly call him back or recommend him to friends and family.

Robert was very responsive from the outset and did an excellent job patching and repairing drywall in several spots throughout the house. One of the patches required more work than I had originally communicated to Robert, but he did it for no additional charge. I would highly recommend him.

Probably the best experience I've had working with a contractor. His work is fantastic and so is professionalism. Our drywall repair on our ceiling looks amazing since Tibu was able to match textures perfectly. Please tell a friend to tell a friend to use Tibu! Truly an amazing experiene to work with.

Jesus did a really great job with my repair and made the drywall look good as new. The patch was rather large but you would never know there had been any work done. He matched the textured walls perfectly. I'd recommend Jesus and will use him again in the future!

Michael and his co-worker powered through my drywall repair job exactly as quoted. They taped/sealed/wrapped everything, and there was hardly any sign of them having been here once they were done. They got the job done quickly, professionally, and as-quoted. Can't ask for much more than that.

Ricardo did a really solid job fixing some larger and small drywall repairs. Looks like new again and he even filled in some extra holes and did a nice paint job. I needed this work quickly and he was able to come next day after messaging him about it.

Jesus skim coated the walls in our basement and then sprayed them with a light orange-peal texture. He also repaired the ceilings and textured them. We are pleased with the work! Throughout the project, Jesus was a pleasure to work with and very responsive. The work was completed in a timely manner. We would hire Jesus and JD Drywall again.

Matt is awesome. I had some decent sized drywall cutouts I needed fixed from recent electrical work. Not only was Matt able to fit me into his schedule the next day, but he finished the work SO quickly and did a great job. I even threw a new hole in our ceiling - almost 6 feet long - at him when he walked in the door (caused that morning by some more electrical work!) and he repaired it beautifully along with everything else I needed done. So happy to have a reliable drywall guy to call now! Thanks again Matt!

Tiburcio was FANTASTIC to work with! I couldn't have asked for a better service and quality from a repair team. We needed a drywall repair and textured after it was cut out to move a spigot from inside to outside. We also needed a panel for the valve. He responded immediately and was able to come on the same day! He was efficient, hard working, conscious of being tidy while working around carpet, priced extremely very well for their excellent work, professional, and overall nice & kind to communicate with. I will absolutely hire him for future jobs, and highly recommend him to others

Robert is an incredible asset to his profession. He was right on time, clearly explained every aspect of the project to me, and he was exceptionally clean in a small space. He treated me with kindness and respect as well as gave me clear expectations of the outcome. He was efficient and has done quality work. He went the extra mile as the project expanded across the wall more than I initially thought. I absolutely recommend Robert to anyone who needs drywall or plaster repair. You will not be disappointed.

Terrice responded to my work request right away. He gave me a fair bid and was able to complete excellent work on both drywall and tiling. I added in a few extra jobs and he was very accommodating, willing to put in the extra work and time. He has great attention to detail and is capable of multiple skills you may need to complete home repairs or projects. Great work ethic & great attitude. Prepare to have a little flexibility in your time frame as he is busy accommodating multiple jobs but worth it!
