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.

I used J A R Painting to repair some drywall issues in my home. They showed up on time and did a very good job. I will definitely use them for future repairs and painting.

Bill and his colleague were excellent. They arrived on time and did such neat efficient work for our drywall repair. Everything looks great and after they left I noticed they fixed another spot on the wall without me asking for it. Much appreciated! Would definitely hire again.

I hired Correa Brother's for a drywall repair and paint job. They did a fantastic job! They were on time, professional and efficient. They were also very knowledgeable and seemed very experienced. The paint job they did looks better than the original paint job! And you can't tell there was ever any damage to the wall. I would definitely hire them again!
