What do you need for drywall repair?

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.

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 you need a license to repair drywall?

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.

Bayardo did a drywall repair, removed water damaged drywall and replaced it. He did a great job and you can't tell it was repaired. Bayardo was easy to communicate with, was prompt and professional and was a good price for the work. I'd recommend him easily and would hire him again.

Needed some drywall around a fireplace replaced. Called on Sunday, and they were out on Monday. They cleared out the old drywall, installed new drywall, and repaired some damage on the connecting wall. New texture and paint matches up and looks great. Will use them again for future projects.

Elias Drywall and Paint was very quick and efficient! I put in a request for a drywall repair, the responded on thumbtack and came out the same day to give a quote. He was willing to get started that day! I wasn't able to have him start that day, but he came the very next day, bright and early! He did fantastic work, you can't even see the seams where the patches are! I am very happy with the work he did and I will call on him if I need any other drywall repairs!

Angel was great. Good price, friendly, clean and expeditious in his work. Repaired 4 spots on the ceiling where the drywall was cracking or drooping and did a great job. Make sure to have cash on hand though!

Nick came out to repair a hole in the ceiling, caused by a water leak and investigating where the water was coming from. After the leak was repaired, it was very difficult to find someone to come out for a "small job" to replace the drywall, but it was a big deal to me. Nick did a great job for a reasonable price. We will be calling on Nick in the future.

Chase did an amazing job on our drywall repair! He was on time, professional, friendly, and very knowledgeable about why the cracks were occurring. He even helped us install a new gutter pipe to ensure that the soil around our foundation remained dry and prevented future cracks. I would highly recommend Chase for any drywall job and will certainly use him again if needed. Thanks Chase!
