What do you need for drywall repair?

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.

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 you need a license to repair drywall?

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.

We hired Ron and his team to repair drywall that was damaged in two rooms, and to complete a new drywall job in one room. Ron was very easy to work with - responsive, professional, ethical, and kind. He gave us a (more than) fair price, was committed to completing the work up to his standard, and made sure that we were satisfied with the work. The work that he and his team completed looks great, and we would definitely use Ron again for future projects.

Myron runs a tight ship. The job we hired him for was some drywall repair but after reading reviews and meeting with him I asked if he could do several other things so we could list our house. The answer was always, yeah we can do that. I never got the feeling he was trying to pad anything, he gave me honest feedback that a home buyer would and likely wouldn't care about. When it came time to do the work, he made sure his guys were always on time, they were professional, and very clean. This job was pretty big so the attention to the little details was nice. They had to come back out a couple of times to clean up some small things as drywall set but Myron never once complained and simply got it done. My ceiling looks better than it ever has. Ball Homes should hire him for the drywall work, their original drywallers clearly don't know how to take care of smooth ceilings like Myron's team does!
