Title: Finished plasterwork exposed to the elements.

Finished plasterwork exposed to the elements.

Hello We have had a conservatory built and basically the company we employed to build it sub contracted the work out. The brickwork is substandard and the contractors agrees. The roof and outside brickwork needs to come down and rebuilt so my question is; As the wet weather is fast approaching if the plasterboards and plaster are in situ when it rains will they dry without any adverse affect to them? Thank you

You are right to be concerned, plasterboard will not survive if exposed to the elements
