Is this planned repair an overkill?
After a week vacation, we went home to find a big hole in the ceiling. Apparently it rain a lot and there was a leak in the roof. The water wetted the blown insulation and drywall and the heavy weight cause a piece about 24 x 36 inches to fall. There is some stain in one corner of the room.
The repairman said thats its best to replace a bigger area, almost the entire family room ceiling where the hole is. The whole area is about 30 ft by 30 ft.
He talked about mold, stain, etc.
I am thinking its going to be a mess to replace it plus the time involved in doing the repair. The cost is no matter since its covered by insurance. Why not just replace a couple of drywall where the hole is? What do readers think about this. Thanks in advance.
