water damage
Posted by mjavier on May 16, 1999 at 15:33:59:
I've found that some of the 2x4 wall studs have
rotted due to water exposure (I assume that it's water
and not termites, however). Since the studs lay directly adjacent to an external stucco wall of the house, I'm reluctant to just pull'em out and replace. Do you have any advice on replacement without damaging stucco walls or bracing studs without replacement? In the case of the latter, would I have to "paint/seal" over the rotted areas of the old studs?
