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.

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!

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.

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.

I have nothing but great things to say about Antonio! He repaired some drywall in the ceiling of my home. He did excellent work! The ceiling looks like new. He is a top-of-the-line professional and a very talented tradesman. I am definitely hiring him to complete more projects, and I would HIGHLY recommend him to anyone!

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.
