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.

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.

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 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.

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.

Jose Benjamin (business owner) and his employee (Joel) just finished up drywall repair for me at my home. I had large holes in my drywall from having new electrical ran through the wall. Jose was extremely quick in responding to my request for a drywall repair. He completed the work the next morning for me. Jose and Joel arrived right on time (not a minute late), and completed the repair quickly. The repair was completed with quality work. They were even very persistent to mop and clean up the very small mess they made with the drywall. Even after I insisted I would mop. I am very pleased with this company. I even got quoted on another job for him to do on another day. I will be hiring him again.

Ron was faced with quite the challenge repairing drywall from a pipe replacement that had uneven surfaces. He did an excellent job, leaving our kitchen looking even better than before. He even matched a specific stamp pattern. I would absolutely use Ron again and recommend him for any drywall needs.

This is a good crew! Easy choice to use again! They took on a huge job (5,200 square feet), with extensive drywall repair, paining trim, walls, and most ceilings. They also painted all doors and handrails. There was water damage a lack of upkeep from the previous owner. They were quick to give us a quote and started only a few days later. We decided to add on the garage walls and ceiling and they gave us a fair increase in the quote. They were externally responsive to us finding issues to fix while they were working. It actually seemed like they already knew but had not gotten to the issue yet. Overall we will 100% use this crew again.
