Learn more about drywall repair costs.

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.

Eliseo fixed a large hole in my ceiling's drywall. He did excellent work (it's hard to tell that there WAS a hole) for a very reasonable price. Eliseo really helped me out, and I would recommend him to anyone else needing drywall repair.

Tim did a great job repairing a hole in the drywall in our dining area. His pricing was reasonable and he was very accommodating with my schedule. The repair was done quickly and blends in nicely with the rest of the wall. If you're looking for someone professional and reliable, Tim is your guy!

Ton Ten Drywall was such a breeze to work with. From within minutes of submitting my bid request- they were quick to respond and professional. They finished my job within days of my request and for a very reasonable price. I had texture that I was told would be hard to match and they matched it perfectly. I highly recommend this company if you have any drywall repairs or texture matching needs.

I didn’t see any reviews for Rock Solid Drywall so I did some investigation and found wonderful references on their Facebook page. The owner, Jacob was professional, and great to work with. He worked in my repair with 48hrs of his bid, arrived on time and cleaned his workspace up before he left. I would highly recommend Rock Solid Drywall! Thank you Jacob!

Jorge was excellent! He repaired large holes in my kitchen that resulted from the removal of an exhaust hood. He was efficient and completed the job exactly as I requested. I would use him again for more drywall work in the future.

Did a great job. It is very hard to get texture to match but even we cannot tell where the patches are. We got orange peel and knock down textures and both look equally good. Highly recommend Jose for drywall repairs.

Agreed to take on our job at very short notice and worked over the weekend to finish everything in time for our backsplash install. Did a very professional job with repairing and finishing drywall, after we had our counter tops replaced. Strongly recommend.

We hired BG drywall to repair some sheetrock that was damaged from a bad shower leak on the floor above. As part of the process, Jorge also repaired a header above a closet and replaced insulation that was water damaged. The texture blend looks perfect and he even textured another spot in a different room without asking that we had previously repaired but never got around to texturing. The work was fast and turned out great. Finally, we had a giant/heavy desk we couldn't fit through a door way and he offered to help by rather taking apart the door frame or squeezing it in. Jorge and his assistant were able to accommodate our busy schedule and happily did the work. I highly recommend BG drywall and will be sure to contact Jorge if we have future needs.

Eliseo patched up an area about 3' x 3' of drywall that was water damaged from a leaky skylight. He was at my place 7 days in total from about a half hour to 2 hours, sometimes twice a day. He's definitely one of the more talkative people I've met. The repaired area looks fantastic.

Eliseo went above and beyond on our drywall repair and texturing project. Even though it turned out to be significantly more complex and time-consuming than what he originally thought, he stuck to his original quote, and most importantly, did a fantastic, thorough job. Highly recommended, thank you so much!

Eliseo was prompt, courteous, and meticulous. He accommodated our schedule and communicated regularly throughout the process, which we really appreciated. He was also personable and fun to talk to. His workmanship was excellent - we had him do some drywall repair and painting. Turned out better than expected and beautifully done. We would definitely recommend him and use him again.

Lesley was awesome with her responses and gave what I needed before they even started the job. A date and time of the job has been setup a day before, which is great! Gustavo came to our home on time and started the work by explaining me what's going to be done. He did a good job. Overall Top Ten did a very good job with the drywall repair at our home. Highly recommend this business.

First I must say, I never write reviews. I am so pleased with our Drywall repair that I wanted to take the time to do so. I recently had my house repiped which left multiple cutouts in our drywall throughout the house. I got a quote from the plumber who was going to sub it out to another company. I reached out to Eliseo for a second quote. He responded immediately and stopped by the next day to quote the job. He reached out to me each time he was arriving and followed up promptly. His bid was 30% less than the other quote. I read the other positive reviews on Thumbtack and with his promptness on the bid, selected him to perform the work. He showed up on time and continued with clear communications. His attention to detail and explanations of the job as he got to work was awesome. We had to leave on vacation after the first day of work, I was confident he would finish the job and excited to return home to to see the results. I was more than pleased with the result. The holes in the drywall were in the middle of large walls and ceilings with multiple angles. The seams are blended perfectly and you can’t even tell where the patches are. I recently had a full bathroom remodel from a contractor for $10k plus. His drywall work was noticeably better than theirs. If you want quality craftsmanship from a friendly professional, do not hesitate to hire Eliseo. I have several other home projects in the works and will be hiring Eliseo to perform them.

It was a pleasure to work with John and Karen. I seldom experience the excellence of professionalism such as what John and Karen displayed in all aspects of their much appreciated hard work. From reliable punctuality, the perfectionism in the quality of their work to the cleanup at the end of each day, it was all above anything I could have imagined! From the drywall repairs, wall and ceiling texturing to the painting there was no mistake that this couple takes pride in their workmanship! I wish that others I have hired for different projects would follow suit to the example of John and Karen it would have saved me much grief!

We needed someone to perform drywall repair and paint on a very short notice. After reading through the great reviews on Thumbtack, we decided to hire Eliseo. Eliseo is friendly, patient and knowledgeable. Starting from our initial contact over the phone to the conclusion of the job Eliseo has been prompt and communicative. I explained the work that needed to be done and he gave us a fair bid. Eliseo is thorough with his work and takes his job very seriously. We are really glad that we were able to work with him and would highly recommend him.
