Forum Title: Repairing a corner
Customers demo guy ripped out a wall for plumbing and wants me to fix it. Seeking some advise from drywall guys. This is my idea. Seem about right? 1) Cut along the pink line just to the left of the metal stud. This stud will be the nailer for the existing wall. 2) insert a wooden sister stud inside the metal studs open face. I can't use a metal stud as a sister because the existing metal stud faces the wrong way. See second pic. Or As an alternative to sistering in step 2 I could insert a metal stud into the existing track at the top and bottom. However I don't think cutting the wall to the ceiling will expose the top of the track because it's a dropped ceiling. 3) insert a strip of Sheetrock to replace the removed piece and screw to the new sister in step 2 and the corner. Insert a corner piece and I'm now flush at the two walls. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
