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.
