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.

Jose was very prompt and did a good job. I would be happy to recommend him for drywall repair and painting.

Drywall install/repair, mud, texture. Arrived on time, professional, completed work and cleaned up when done. Repaired items that I missed and made sure everything was to my satisfaction. Honest, hard working and would hire again. Thanks

We selected Pros Home Painting because we liked the questions they asked about our job, and were very specific about what they would and would not do (drywall, texture, primer, paint) and this made us feel more comfortable that we would be getting the work we wanted done without surprises. Juliano did a beautiful job on our ceiling drywall repair project. You can’t even tell it was ever repaired. Not only was the job done well, but he cleaned up really well afterwards... he left the space clean and ready for use. I will definitely be hiring Pros Home Painting again! Pricing was on par with the other quotes we received.

I need a drywall repair done ASAP, because I had family coming into town the next day. These guys worked their schedule around and were able to make it over to my house the same day I contacted them. They did Ana amazing job, wouldn’t even know there was a decent sized hole anymore. They matched the texture wonderfully. I have zero complaints.

BAD CUSTOMER "SERVICE"! I contact this company evening of 1/21/21 about drywall repairs (6' x 3' rectangular "hole") I needed repaired on my bedroom ceiling. I provided a photo of area and detailed description as well. Company responded quickly saying they could do the job in a few days and gave me a price. I quickly responded with confirmation and my phone number and asked for phone call to confirm an exact time and to provide my address. Company then responded with " OK. Thank you very much. It's a job for professionals" and that was it! Never responded to any other of my follow-up responses. Lesson: Don't "ghost" a customer after you've confirmed accepting the job -- ESPECIALLY if your company is named "Drywall & CEILING and patches". BIG mistake as I also needed patches done and texture added to ALL walls and ceiling throughout my entire house but clearly the work (and money) will go to another, more responsive company.
