Heather R. says, "So, the items above limit me to only 3, but Jenny and Mario at Obelisk is all of those things and more! Their work quality, professionalism, responsiveness, value, and punctuality are all second to none! I can't say enough great things about working with them. We had a downstairs tile patio that flooded, even if when only the sprinklers came on. We could only raise the patio a few inches because of a door so they had to get creative. They came up with, and executed, a perfect plan that included drains and cement. We went with a stain on the concrete (it was tile before) and it looks absolutely amazing. We had a "Texas Size" rain storm a few nights ago and the patio did not flood AT ALL! I was so happy with their work that I went ahead and hired them to our upstairs patio/balcony and to repaint our railings on the stairs leading up to the front of the house. Not only was their work absolutely great, but they finished it in a fraction of the time that other GC's had quoted me. Because my husband travels I had to make all of the decisions alone along the way and they were always great about outlining my options and the cost. I never felt pressured or had any concern that they were trying to "just make a buck". I will absolutely hire them, without a second thought, for our next project!!"See more

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.
