Drywall & metal studs.

Can you remove drywall from metal studs without damaging the studs?

Drywall & metal studs.

yes, with a little care... not with a sledge hammer.

cut perimeter of area to be removed... cut into small sections ... remove gently with care... you may want to score at stud locations. Remove screws with drill-motor and proper bit. small area to be removed at a time should be under on center of studs.
