In this video, This Old House contributor Mark Clement demonstrates how to demolish a wall. If you have open or easy access to a wall, cut with the blade right-side up. If you have reduced access, flip the blade around for a lower angle of attack. Make plunge cuts to remove drywall, then cut the fasteners to remove the studs.
Learn how to:
Properly cut through and take down drywall
Choose the optimal angle of attack
Utilize the plunge-cut method
Cut through fasteners
Avoid cutting errors
