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.

I hired this company to remove some tile around the tub and repair the wall. They did an excellent job and the wall looks perfect. I highly recommend them for drywall repairs.

Ernest was great! He came out to my property quickly to give me an estimate, fair prices. He did a great job repairing some of my ceiling in my garage that had lost a drywall panel. I will definitely use him again!

Tru Touch LLC was great to work with and I would highly recommend their service to anyone in the Columbia South Carolina area. Very responsive and great at communicating. He was the perfect fit for our client, he is very good with customers who might be a bit unhappy. We hired him to repair damaged ceiling where an employee had stepped through the drywall from the attic. Both were popcorn style ceilings. Jeff did an excellent job on the repair and in keeping the customer happy during the process (which was a lot quicker than other estimates we received). Take a look at the before and after photos and Tru Touch LLC’s work will speak for itself. Picture was taken right after completion so it is still wet, but once it dries, color will go back to normal. Don’t hesitate to call Tru Touch! They do a lot more than drywall repair.

I had Mr. Thomas to repair some drywall and retexture my ceiling. Mr. Thomas came out one day to give me an estimate and was able to complete the job the next day. He was on time and made sure he covered things up inside the house to ensure nothing got paint on it. I would have rated home 5 starts however when he did the ceiling in the garage he didn't cover anything up and there was paint everywhere.
