It's caved in pretty bad. If I push my hand on the wall there it yields, meaning it is still wet.

Warped Sheet Rock - How to repair?


i was kidding! your going to have to wash that down with some mold control(you can buy it at home depot) then rip out the wet drywall and go farther then you think unless you have a penatrating moisture meter. and go as far as it says cutting it off where ever your studs are or as you say furrinng strips cause its block wall. then spray and clean down the area with mold control again. then you'll have to move the counter or do some tricky drywall work. mud the patch, sand out and prime the area. then paint the wall.

Warped Sheet Rock - How to repair?


With the dishwasher pulled and a gap between the counter and the wall, I see no reason why you can't slide in a single piece of sheetrock and secure it properly to the furring strips. No need to remove the countertop. Add matching backsplash and you are done.

Warped Sheet Rock - How to repair?


All, thanks for all the helpful replies.

My mold test came back and the results are "ELEVATED". I started a new thread in pest control forum as it's more appropriate there.

Moisture Penetration and Mold Advice Needed

I wanted to keep this thread for the sheet rock repair problem but thought if anyone were interested in the mold inspection I posted it there. Thanks.
