Metal or wood

950 Views 2 Replies 3 Participants Last post by  12penny
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.
