Condo drywall replacement

Can I just replace the drywall in my condo or do I have to replace the steel framework / studs, too?

Condo drywall replacement

Do just the drywall, walls studding will remain in place.

Drywall between units must be 5/8" for a fire rating.


When its all said and done there is usually more said than done

Condo drywall replacement

Is the drywall damaged from water? Or is it cosmetic damage from pets, children, etc.? Can you just patch it or skim coat the surface with texture for a new look/finish?

If any ads are present in my answer above, I do not condone/support/use the product or services listed, they are there against my permission.
