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.

Damasio and Cliff did a great job repairing and finishing a big section of drywall. They were right on time, and did the work really well. They were really perfecting and detail oriented, and the price was very reasonable. Highly recommended!

Work quality really good. His initial verbal quote was $450 which we thought was fair and reasonable. This was for drywall repair in two rooms. Before job start, he emailed same quote with remark if additional work occurred, there would be additional charges. I asked him if he needed to charge more, he said maybe a little but not yet. He & one other started next morning, worked about 5 hrs, emailed me that evening saying he did need to charge more, $300 more. We were shocked, compromised by paying $150 more. They finished job next day, approximately another 5 hrs. They did good work, but not thrilled with the way he changed the cost. He never itemized materials but said more material and having to use a second person was the reason even though he was using the second person from the start. We did provide the paint.
