Hello, This is my first time posting, but I've found a lot of useful information here in the past. I'm helping a friend of mine with some water damage issues between two windows. He found some areas of bad caulking around window trim and pulled off the siding to expose some water damage to the studs. He's fixed the infiltration issue and has let the area dry out all summer so everything is nice and dry. Normally this would be an easy patch job. The tricky part is that this damage occurred between two windows. So both the cripples and both king studs are damaged. I've posted two pictures of the are affected. The damage is worse going from right to left, despite the appearance of the far left cripple. The far right cripple is actually in the worst shape, followed by the king stud to the left. I think the cripple-king pair on the left is more or less ok, but the pair on the right should be replaced. But if we're going to fix one pair, it seems like it'd be better to replace both pairs. Since there are two king studs right next to each other, what would be the best way to go about doing that. Because of the windows, we can't sister in support pieces to the sides but would the windows themselves act like sister supports? Could we just cut out one king at a time, replace, then nail the new pieces together once in place? Or just not bother since the wood is dry and just replace the single king stud? The cripples seem easy enough to handle, so its just the matter of the kings. Thanks!
