The radiator pipe in the apartment above froze and burst saturating my ceiling and walls with water. Does drywall deteriorate once in gets wet? Should I insist that all of it is replaced or will repainting be sufficient?
Hi Kristine and welcome to the boards. Drywall will weaken once it get's wet and dries out. I would ask the landlord to cut out the rotten drywall and replace with new.
It seems to me like the landlord would want to remove the drywall to dry the wall out and remove the wet insulation. Any comments on that from the experts???
