In the house in question, the carpet, baseboards and the room itself is in good enough shape as to not need work, so to re-do all the drywall would be a massive effort and expense. The state of the studs is unknown, but surely there's some damage. In a few years, no structural damage was noticed.
The fear is that being a corner room, if the studs are compromised, eventually the structure could be damaged. Removing the drywall would allow new PT or metal studs to be inserted.
I'm wondering if there are alternatives. For example, some INJECTABLE polymer or something, which could be inserted into holes drilled in the wall, which would fill up any gaps in the studs and strengthen them?
Surely there are solutions none of us have thought of which would prevent having to take apart the carpet and baseboards etc.
