How to Brace an Interior Wood Stud Wall

Answer

Remodeling projects often require the relocation or addition of internal walls that are framed in wood. It’s possible that a wall will need some kind of interim bracing while it waits for the other walls to be attached. In other circumstances, such as when the walls of a wing or a load-bearing wall are being supported, permanent bracing is required. The installation of temporary bracing is not a challenging task. Permanent bracing systems are typically designed by an architect or structural engineer, and their installation is carried out by a qualified and insured contractor. Whether the subfloor is made of concrete or plywood will determine the kind of equipment that are required to build temporary bracing at an inside wall.
