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.

Will did an awesome job at drywalling our ceiling. We had to coordinate with another company at the same time he was there. I would definitely recommend FG Custom Repairs!

I needed the drywall in my two-car garage repaired and painted and Rebekka Reets from Indigo Painting was quick to help. After discussing the details of the job, she provided me with a very reasonable quote compared to others. She and her crew member were very friendly, professional, and communicative. The job only took the weekend to complete and the finished product was outstanding quality. If I ever needed another painting job done, I wouldn't hesitate to call her again. Highly recommended.

I would highly recommend Santiago! He contacted me minutes after I requested an estimate. He came the same day and gave me a free quote. I was amazed when he said he could come the next day to do the job. He was very courteous and professional. He arrived on time and finished the job on the same day. His pricing was very reasonable. The drywall repair is seamless and his painting looks great! I am so glad I found him on Thumbtack!
