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.

I would highly recommend Mr. Diaz for your drywall repairs! We had to have our ceiling repaired due to a leaking shower above and he was timely, professional and did an excellent quality of work in repairing it for us! He painted after he patched and we are extremely happy and will consider hiring him in the future for any other projects as well!

Zach and his partner did a fantastic job repairing my drywall. I had some leaky pipes - to access this, the plumbers needed to cut through the hallway ceiling drywall. It left a 14" x 12" hole. I have always gotten top notch service through Thumbtack, so this is how I found Fine Finishes Custom Painting. Zach's communication was excellent. He showed up promptly at the agreed upon time. Repaired the hole, painted it and now it looks perfectly blended in - you can't tell that there was ever a hole there! Additionally, I had a water stain on the dining area ceiling that Zach took great care to make sure the whole dining ceiling looked blended. If you are looking for high quality painting or drywall repair at an affordable price, I highly recommend Fine Finishes Custom Painting!

Patchmasters was great. I had a handful of drywall repairs in a house I am prepping to sell. They provided a quote and completed the work promptly. They worked with me to work around my work schedule. I recommend and would hire again.

We hired Lening to repair and replace drywall from our house remodel. Communication was good, the crew was always on time, and all work was completed to my satisfaction. They also painted our ceilings that used to be popcorn texture. Everything looks great and will definitely hire again!

The photo on the left is a picture of drywall that was damaged due to a leak in my master bathroom. This “repair” cost $300.00. I feel like the pictures speak for themselves. The final picture was of the drywall dust that was literally ALL OVER the first floor of my house. In the spirit of fairness I will say they offered to return a couple days after this mess was made however I ended up canceling because in my opinion they only made the problem worse and I couldn’t chance it.

John was punctual, friendly, and did the work that was promised at a phenomenal price compared to other quotes that I received. He repaired some sheet rock/drywall that was damaged due to termites and he made it look like nothing ever happened! Great quality work. Highly recommend!

They did a small drywall repair / paint job on my bedroom ceiling. They ran into a minor issue and the job ended up being more time consuming than originally expected. The painters went above and beyond to resolve the issue leaving the impression that customer satisfaction is extremely important to this business.

I removed all the popcorn ceiling throughout the house and had Jiv Drywall come in and fix the ceiling to get it ready for paint. Any rough spots that were there are gone, everything was smoothed out. He took care to cover the carpets and furniture throughout the house. Work was done within the timeframe I had asked and the quality is excellent. He even repaired some holes I had in the walls which I did not expect. Would definitely recommend for any drywall/skim coating needs.

We were extremely disappointed in the drywall work. Owner came out immediately took a look, had a new crew repair it. It looks great. We hired him again to do crown and install built ins in playroom and they are amazing. My brother recently hired him to do his downstairs ceiling and we couldn’t be more pleased with the work

John repaired interior drywall for me and my experience was amazing. He is very responsive and actually was able to start the job the same day he came out to view the job. He also has extended his services in other areas. It has been a real pleasure working with John who is extremely personable. I definitely will be using him for any future projects.
