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.

James helped with a full drywall repair in most of the first floor space. We were up against a quick deadline and James provided us with quick and efficient service to meet the deadline. He provided ideas and solutions in areas where we had some issues that needed more significant repair. This included fixing dull corners, re-texturing a repaired ceiling, and fully drywall finishing a flat ceiling. James communicated with us consistently throughout the project to let us know next steps and timing. We enjoyed working with James and having his help with this project.

Golden Handyman did an EXCELLENT job for us! Talal responded immediately, diagnosed our problem, and did the drywall repair and painting in a prompt and professional manner. He went out of his way to adjust his schedule, working around the roof repair that we had to complete first. We highly recommend Golden Handyman. FIVE STARS ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

Tony proactively bid on a drywall repair job I placed. The job entailed repairing drywall from a cutout section of my dining room from a plumbing repair that was needed. The plumbers also damaged our baseboards opening the wall. Our home is over 100 years old in Cleveland Heights so i was nervous to hire anyone given the need to get this back to the same quality and finish that has given this house its 100 year lifespan. Tonys bid was highly competitive. He gave me his phone number, we talked and srt a date for a Saturday job. He arrived on time and did a fantastic job. He practiced all COVID precautions while masked throughout the job, even when I wasn't around. Very professional and well mannered as well. I'll definitely use him again.

I had hired a contractor to repair the plaster sag in the ceiling. I wanted to dry wall it and texture it and the drywall was too thick and the texture was sloppy. Talal and team came in and fixed the work the other contractors had done to perfection. The quote was clear and the work was of high quality. I will hire Talal again.
