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.

John supervised a drywall craftsman in the repair of some drywall around my fireplace. The craftsman did excellent work and was very courteous. They took great care to minimize the dust that comes with sanding sheetrock, as well as protecting the surrounding area. Also took care of proper clean up. Great team.

Christian helped us out with a drywall emergency, after movers put a huge hole in the wall of our rental house during move out. He was quick, professional and dependable, and the repair job looked amazing. His quick work helped get us out of the house sooner than any other estimate from drywall repair specialists projected, and his rate was very competitive. I highly recommend him!

I plan on using Correa Brother's again because they were ahead of schedule and let me know they could come early to do the job even though I wasn't ready. Their price was better than most of the other quotes I received and I felt like received quality workmanship on my drywall repairs. Thanks guys!!

I'm extremely impressed with their work! We had three small sections of our ceiling that I thought needed to be replaced. Christian looked at them and decided that the drywall in 2 of the spots was actually undamaged, the water marks were superficial. He cleaned and painted those two, and repaired the third. The price for the job was then lowered to match the change in work. All three sections of our ceiling now look good as new.
