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.

Eddie did a great job repairing our drywall and getting the texture finish to match the existing drywall. He also gave us good advice with regard to flooring and painting. 10/10 would hire again!

Michael was very kind and completed my unique drywall patch job in a timely manner for a great price with excellent quality! I hope to not need drywall repair in the future, but if I do, I will absolutely reach out to Michael again! Definitely highly recommend!

Hector is incredibly professional and skilled. We hired him to hang and repair the drywall of one of our guest rooms, but he volunteered to also repair the dents in other areas of our house! We will hire him again without hesitation in the future.

Todd repaired a large hole in the drywall of my upstairs ceiling. He replaced the damaged drywall, textured, and repainted to match the existing paint. Todd showed up exactly when scheduled, worked diligently to complete the project on time and on budget, and his workmanship was excellent. I would not hesitate to recommend Todd to others in need of similar work.

Micheal did an excellent job on repairing some water damaged drywall we had. He was prompt with showing up, working on the job, and following up the next day to work on the next stage of the job after the previous day had dried. Would definitely recommend, we'll be reaching out to Michael for our drywall needs in the future.

Michael was extremely accommodating with our ever-changing timeline for needing a small drywall repair. He was very responsive when we asked questions and when he came to do the work arrived when he said he would and completed the patch quickly. We would call him again for our next drywall project.

Carlos was the quickest to respond and most reasonably priced. He did exactly what we needed and did it sooner than expected. We will use him in the future and highly recommend him for drywall repair.

Jonathan was able to get a drywall repair project done quickly, which was needed for a tenant who is to be moving in soon. They did high quality work, and I was impressed by their texturing. I'm planning on using Crosses handyman services in the future at every opportunity!

I am trying to buy a house. The bank appraiser said I needed to have some drywall repair completed within a week before I could close on the property. I got in contact with Brent through thumbtack.com and he completed the repairs 3 days after I first talked to him about the job. This was great for me since I didn't have much time to get the repairs done. The quality of the repairs is fantastic. Brent did a super great job. I would totally hire him again.

Joey responded very quickly and came within the hour to give me a quote on drywall repair after a re-pipe. He came the next day and completed the job in 1 afternoon! We talked about using dropcloths over the carpet which didn't happen (not sure why) so I have a little bit of a mess to clean up since mud got onto my carpet. That's a little disappointing, but overall, the work was done well and quickly. Thanks, Joey!
