Water Damaged Bathroom
Metal studs are often the culprit to having more damage than is expected.
Water Pooling in Metal Studs
The metal studs are placed inside a baseplate that is shaped like a trough. When water gets behind the wall it will pool and dry out really slowly. Our experiences have taught us to remove the drywall and get that water removed before it starts to cause mold growth in between the studs.
We tented the wall to dry it out ore quickly since it is a troubled spot and the wall was wet all the way up to the ceiling because of an burst pipe overhead.
