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.

Ron repaired the drywall on vaulted ceilings in two rooms. He did an excellent job, and his extensive experience with drywall repair is evident in the work he did. Ron also works quickly and is professional.

Ron was great in repairing drywall in our home that was leftover from a bad experience with another contractor. He was fairly priced lower than others I contacted for the work needed to be done. On time! Easy to work with!

I hired Mark to repair a hole in our master bedroom ceiling that had been cut out to repair a leak. He is the consummate professional. He was prompt, is a perfectionist (which I like), and the price was right. I’ve had a lot of drywall work done over the years, but never this quality. I highly recommend!

My Mother hired Justin for what she thought would be a drywall repair. She actually needed drywall replacement. My Mother’s home was the same house she was raised in as well as myself and siblings. The home has welcomed five (5) generations. Justin was very professional, gave excellent advice while serving the needs of my Mother. The job was completed as specified, cost was very reasonable and we are able can move to the next step of the kitchen remodel.

Ron is who you should hire if you have a difficult drywall project and want it done well and for a good price. Kitchen ceiling had lots of repair spots, so the whole ceiling needed a skim coat. We had a large bump from installing a ceiling beam. Ron took care of all of it, made the whole ceiling look flat with no bumps or repairs. His quality of work is outstanding for a fair price. He painted the ceiling as well. There was an issue with some of the paint peeling because he had to put so much mud on the ceiling to make it look right and the mud didn’t dry completely. It wasn’t his fault. He came back on an extra day and fixed it. Ceiling looks great and I would hire him to do any drywall repair or install. I’d strongly recommend him to anyone. I wish all contractors did as good of a job as him.

I had 4 separate areas in my home that needed repair due to water damage. One was a pretty extensive drywall job, and the others were plaster repair (including a spot on the ceiling). Ron was quick to respond, provided an in-person quote within one day, and the job was complete by the end of the week. He was professional, stuck to his estimate even after it took a little longer and required more material than originally anticipated, and did a fantastic job. I will definitely hire him again!

I had initially hired a handyman to do some work around our new house, and there was some drywall that was stained from an old leak. Our handyman tried to repair it, but ran into some issues getting it flush on the ceiling. While he knew drywall, he was not an expert. In comes Mike with MVM Construction, and he was able to swing by, take a look, give me a reasonable quote, and had guys there by that afternoon since I was hoping to get it done before move in! Whatever issue our handyman ran into was no problem for Mike's guys. They quickly patched things up, and it looked beautiful. As they were doing the work they made some marks on the wall, so while the drywall mud was drying, they took a trip to the store, got a perfect match on the paint color for the wall, and fixed that, too! That gave them the time to put on the second coat of mud, get the ceiling painted, and you'd never know the drywall was cut out. Very impressive work. The quote was a little higher than others I had received, but it was worth every penny.

I would highly recommend Dawa. The quality of his work is top notch! We needed drywall repair and painting for several rooms (including a kitchen that required fine detail work) and baseboard replacement and painting as well. He works quickly and efficiently, with great attention to detail. On top of all this, he’s also a really nice person! If you’re looking for high quality workmanship, hire Sherpa Painter.

Couldn't be happier. He replied within 20 minutes and came out within two days. Unrivaled professionalism. I felt so comfortable with him in my home that I left twice. Fantastic quality work repairing 4 large observation holes in my drywall, and he went above and beyond ensuring I was happy with the final product, even offering to paint free of charge some adjacent baseboard that he noticed had been repaired poorly by the previous owners. I let him know as he was leaving that it's rare to find a professional you trust in your home and with any repairs you need. Embodies the honest-work, small business owner mindset. Resounding recommendation.

Ron really came in the clutch for me. I needed emergency repairs done in a very small 48 hour tome window and Ron responded to my request immediately. The appointment was easy to setup as Ron was available for all communication. He was able to fix the hole in the drywall quickly and it looked good too. He recommended that after the drywall hole dried he would prime it and then have me paint over it later. He gave me a goof quick lesson in what I would need to do and even gave me some painters tape. I followed Ron's directions after I let the primer dry and it looks good as new. Thanks again Ron!!!
