Karen R. says, "I honestly cannot recommend King’s Crown Construction enough. I’m retired and I’ve owned a few homes. It would seem there’s always something that needs to be done. I bought this house in June of 2020 and I soon became aware of some soft spots on the guest bath floor. I’ve had three handyman come and start the job and then just disappear. It was really frustrating to say the least. The first picture is what the second handyman left me with right before he disappeared. Then I found Richard at King’s Crown Contruction. What a relief!!! He told me there was a lot of rotted wood around the toilet and under the tub. The whole subfloor needed to be removed from wall to wall. Including under the bathtub. There was also some damage to a couple of joists that he addressed. Richard gave me a great price on the floor and he also replaced my toilet seat, the float, and the ceiling light fixture. He was always on time, he returned phone calls and texts, and if he was going to be even five minutes late he’d call. If I weren’t retired I’d try my best to hire him. His professional attitude and customer service skills are examplary. Call him and hire him. You won’t be sorry. I promise. Here’s his number…(910) 528-0653"See more

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.
