  • Approximate cost to repair a 5-foot crack in a wall: $125 (labor $75 and materials $50).

Learn more about drywall repair costs.

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.

I needed a drywall repair after a plumbing repair. The crew arrived at the time of the appointment. They finished the project earlier than the estimated time. The final product is great. You can’t even tell where the cut was. Great work!

They did a great job with the drywall repair of a large hole. It now doesn't even look like there was ever a hole there to begin with. They also were very clean, vacuum, plastic with taped. I recommend and would hire again.

Leo squeezed my small project in to his schedule and finished the work in the small window of time I had available. He quickly repaired the drywall, installed a new towel rack, and left the area clean. I would hire him again.

The ceiling drywall repair was done very well. The staff were professional and friendly, showed up on time, covered and isolated the work area to prevent the dust from spreading, and cleaned up afterwards. I look forward to working with CertaPro on future home projects.

The business owner (Alex) was very responsive and attentive to my desires. I had recessed lighting installed in both my living room and kitchen. As a result, I needed drywall repairs and ceiling resurfacing. He made note of unrelated imperfections and I couldn't have been more pleased with the outcome! I would absolutely recommend them for your home repair type of work.

Amazing work for the two sections of drywall I needed repaired! As you can see from the before and after photos, Alexander did an outstanding job! He used drop cloths and floor coverings to minimize wear on my floors, and cleaned up everything thoroughly. I would absolutely recommend him!

TKO was fantastic! I contacted TKO at 9:30pm for a job to be completed the next day. My original contractor dropped out, but TKO responded immediately. They were at my house first thing the next morning and repaired the peeling drywall paper in my bathroom remodel. Five stars! I’ll definitely be hiring them again!

Noel did drywall repair (lots of small holes from electrical work) and repainting at our house. We couldn’t be happier with the work. Noel was able to come out quickly for a quote, had a fair price, was able to complete work over the holidays, and even picked up additional paints for us. We’ll be recommending him to all of our neighbors.

Julio, from RJ Tech, helped me with my drywall ceiling repair. He came within a few days of my first contact to provide a free estimate of the work. He was knowledgeable, courteous and punctual. His estimate was extremely competitive. The work itself was completed swiftly by his staff and he explained everything that was going to happen beforehand. His staff didn't speak English well, but they were respectful and competent and careful not to damage anything in my living room. I'll definitely be calling Julio for future repairs.

Thrilled to have found Morales. They were super responsive on the timing and the quality of work was top notch. We had some drywall water damage and a significant crack that had never looked right from the day the addition was put in. They repaired it all beautifully. They were also very respectful of our home and furniture, covering everything while they worked, and cleaning up thoroughly. Thank you!

Great experience with Jandres Painting Services. A plumber had to remove a piece of drywall to repair a broken pipe, and I contacted Jandres Painting Services to see if they could help fix this before I had a new renter move in. They came out the next day and did a great job - very professional and cleaned everything up before they left. Bonus points for great communication responsiveness as well.

I contacted D & B Drywall and Painting to repair holes created for new lights and electrical work. D & B also refinished some Sheetrock and repainted my kitchen. José was great to work with from providing a quote through project completion. There many rectangular drywall holes that had to be filled, patched, and repainted. Each area looks like there was never any patchwork done. Quality work at a fair price. I will employee D & B’s services again if I have a project to complete. There are no before photos, but my ceiling and walls had seven sizable cutouts for the electrical work, now, no sign there was ever any holes. Thank You D & B!
