Does anyone have any pros and cons for using metal studs instead of whitewood on residential projects?


For me are they are cheaper right now. Just an example: Lowes is selling a 2x4x8 whitewood stud for $5.96, compared to a 25g metal stud at $3.24. The dimensions are comparable, but a little short. However, for additions, it may not matter. For repairs, I would imagine I'd need wood to keep it the same. Which is also my Con.

Con: Not consistent.
