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.

Chris is the ultimate craftsman and did a beautiful job for us. We hired him to repair the 30 year old drywall in our garage that had never been painted. He did a fantastic job drywalling, repairing, and painting, and now the garage is the best looking room in our house. Thanks, Chris! Paula

Jose did a great job repairing a leak in the drywall around our skylight. He had to replace moldy insulation and drywall twice the amount originally anticipated and then apply texture and paint. He also repaired 2 other areas. He completed the job on time and it looks spectacular!! We are thrilled and highly recommend Jose to one and all. We would definitely use him again.

José was able to estimate my drywall repair/texture/paint job quickly and come out to complete the job only a few days later. He did the work without issues and the results were great. The ceiling he repaired looks as good as new -- can't see any difference between the repaired section and the rest of the room.

Hi, There's not enough praise for the work that Gonzalo did! He was very professional, and made sure to repair everything the day of. There was an unexpected snafu in our drywall repair, and he was really great at accommodating that at minimal cost. You can't beat his prices and his quality of work. We'll def be using his services again. If you're in two minds about ANY type of drywall work- don't look any further. I promise you won't be disappointed!! Thank you Gonzalo!

Hired these guys to repair a small crack in our ceiling drywall that had been there since we bought our house. They were on time, quick and did a great job. Now it’s impossible to tell there was a crack there. The only reason for 4 stars and not 5 is they left the job site a little messy after they finished. There was drywall debris on the floor, texture overspray on the walls, and our front door mat was covered in drywall mud. Not the worst things to clean up but still kind of annoying when you’re paying for the work to be done.

Justin came in and repaired a vast amount of holes and cracks in our drywall. We had our ducts taken out of the basement and he patched all the damage from taking it out. Very nice and a hard worker.

They drywalled my bathroom and patched three ceiling holes in other rooms. They also made the walls in my kitchen look better by adding texture to make the walls look uniform in places that had been previously repaired. Their price was reasonable and they got the job done fast. They do quality work too. If you're looking to have a whole room drywalled or just need some patching, I recommend them!

Jorge responded to my request immediately. He came out the next day & began the drywall repair. Very clean work & trustworthy man, as I had to leave him in my home to do the work while I was working.

Jaime is meticulous and likes to do the project "right". In the day of contractors that claim they can do things, which they should really not do - Jaime knows his stuff in all things drywall, walls, wall texturing, wall finishing, wall repairs. I hired Jaime to retexturize my walls, finish new drywall (taping, mudding, the works), and patch drywall and retexturize. Because the project was in a condo, there were various restrictions on when work is conducted, keeping the place super tidy (building has dark carpets), getting water from the building bathrooms (water has been turned off for my unit)....Jaime was kind in working around these weird restrictions. And he took out the drywall garbage as well. Updated - so the retextured walls there are severe dimples through out. Be warned.

Axel did a drywall repair job to patch up some holes that were made by an electrician installing a light switch. There were 10 3" diameter holes that needed texturing as well, and he did a flawless job. Definitely will use him again in the future.

Wish I could choose all 5 of the options asking what I liked about working with HF Painting -- Gonzolo was super responsive, was extremely professional, handily beat all other bids on price (I made it up to him...) and was right on time. Need an 8 inch by 4 ft piece of drywall repaired/installed in a tricky space and he did an INCREDIBLE job. Would hire him immediately again for any painting or drywall needs.

I had a plaster ceiling to be skim coated and a ceiling drywall repair that blew up in scope due to some hidden old house eccentricities. Mike handled it like the pro he is and completed the work on time and on budget. Two ceilings now look 100% better.

Paul was very responsive and arrived right at the scheduled time. He did a great job with my drywall repair and even offered to do touch up painting for me in a few other areas. It was a pleasure having Paul over to perform the work I needed, and I would definitely use him again.

Had 14 stairs which needed drywall repair around them, because my new flooring was different height than what was installed before. A 2-man crew showed up and finished this job with extremely high quality in less than 2 hours for a quite reasonable fee. They cleaned up after themselves and did a great job.
