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.

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.

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 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.

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.

Murry quickly responded to my request for an estimate and had the job scheduled and completed right away. Repaired my plaster ceiling that had water damage from bathroom leak in floor above. Replaced the plaster with drywall and looks like new again. I was worried that the drywall would stand out but it blends in with the rest of the ceiling really well.

I cannot give Murry from Optimum Drywall LLC enough praise for the work he did in my house. He was punctual, communicative and did a phenomenal job repairing the drywall and ceiling of my room, which now looks brand new thanks to Murry. He cleaned after he was done and even helped putting some of the furniture back. Highly recommended.

The JC Handyman Crew responded quickly, provided fair pricing and completed the work thoroughly. They repaired three different areas of drywall damage, one which was fairly extensive. Not only did they patch the damages but also took steps to mitigate the risk of the damages reoccurring. Very much recommend them for your home repair needs.

Garrett was great to work with. He fixed a big hole in my ceiling from a plumbing issue and repaired 2 other drywall needs. He was on-time, very professional, very efficient and respectful of the house and furniture. He cleaned up and the end result looks great! Highly recommend and would hire again.

If you're looking for drywall repair - this is the guy you want to use. I am in the process of renovating a house and have used about a dozen contractors; Murry is the best of them. He's going to tell you *exactly* what he'll do, give you a firm price, communicate promptly, and get the job done perfectly. No surprises afterward either - he left my house in paint-ready condition with vacuumed floors and no debris. ----- My experience: he responded immediately to my Thumbtack request, gave me multiple days and times to choose from in the next week along with a quote (which was the exact price I paid). He texted me when he was an hour away, showed up with everything he needed, and immediately got to work while I was on a conference call with no interruption. He even repaired a slightly larger section of my ceiling than originally asked (after asking me) because "it'll make it look better." Definitely the kind of guy who takes pride in his work. 10/10 recommend.
