Metal or wood
Guys, I'm trying to decide which to use for my basement remodel. Metal or wood framing. Nothing especially heavy to be hung on the walls and no water issues.

Question two, if I do use wood framing is there a need for a double top plate on my framed walls? Thanks in advance for any help.

I go with wood, pressure treated bottom plate, single plate on top and add fire blocking.

I use wood for walls also. Metal for soffit work.
