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.

A great job on a pesty drywall crack that had been previously repaired by another company. The team helped educate me about how to approach the repair differently this time so that it doesn’t crack again in the future. They did a great job - extremely professional repair - that was done quickly with no mess.

Danny and his assistant did a drywall repair/replacement project in my garage for me. He kept in regular contact with me and was very accommodating to my irregular schedule. He did a great job at a very reasonable price and made sure I was happy with the work before he finished. They are both very courteous and strong workers. I would definitely have him back for any other work I needed done and would recommend him to others.

Alan has truly come through and helped me out while in a bind. I am an out of state landlord and needed some major drywall repair on a unit. Alan gave me the best price and started the job within a couple days. His work ethic, quality, and professionalism are outstanding. It's hard to find an honest contractor but I swear I just hit the jackpot. Alan is an all around good dude and already feels like a friend. I consider myself lucky that he is working on this project for me. Thanks Alan!!!

I am 14 year contractor from florida and was able to find Alan for a kitchen remodel in Gahanna, on thumbtack. He was awesome, hard working, polite, money conscience, very detailed, and honest. He worked late most days but his number one trait was he wants to do it right! This is a hard character to find nowadays. I would refer him to anyone and will be contract his services again. We had a Conversation on one small thing he needs to work on from a professional view, this set him above the rest! Alan was hired to patch and repair alot of drywall but he performed other tasks above and beyond.

We originally hired Kelsha Flavigny to help repair some ceiling damage after our roof leaked, but he did such an amazing job that we asked him to complete a few other jobs -ranging from building a custom window seat to an entire bathroom remodel. Kelsha is a fantastic contractor. He shows up on time, cleans up the work area each day, and does excellent work. His pricing is fair and reasonable. In fact, we gave him more than what he asked because we thought he didn't charge enough for the amount and quality of work he performed. You can tell he is detail oriented and truly cares about the quality of his work. It's hard to find a contractor that excels in everything you need - but trust us, he will exceed your expectations. He's great with woodwork, flooring, lighting/electrical, drywall, plumbing and has the eye of an artist when it comes to designing custom spaces. He even helped us pick out paint colors for our walls and built-ins. I highly recommend Kelsha and his work.
