Drywall Repair Tools and Materials
If you are not familiar with handyman or construction work, it is recommended to purchase a drywall repair kit, which can offer all the essential tools and materials for drywall patching and repair. These kits vary in scope and size, but common ones generally include 2 to 3 flexible knives, a utility knife, an insider-corner knife, hammer, screwdriver, saw, drill, nails, and screws. But drywall repairs also require additional materials depending on the needs of the project, including:
- 🧰 Compound
🧰 Self-adhering Mesh Tape
🧰 Paper Tape
🧰 1×4 Block of Pine Wood
🧰 Hand Sander
🧰 Nail Bar
- 🧰 Level
🧰 Hack Saw
🧰 Miter Box
🧰 Paint Brush or Roller
You can purchase all of the above-listed materials at any local hardware or home improvement store.
