Do You Have Chinese Drywall in Your Home?

By Pieter O'Leary, Esq.

 

A Preliminary Exam to Determine If Your Home was Built with Toxic Chinese Drywall

 

Step One: Was your home, condominium, or office constructed or remodeled between 2001 and 2008?

 

Step Two: Does your home, condominium, or office have a persistent rotten egg, ammonia, or acidic smell?

 

  • Some owners even describe the smell as sweet or a “new home smell.”

  • Homeowners often find themselves leaving windows open in an attempt to vent the smell or use air fresheners to mask the smell, but are unable to locate the source.

 

Step Three: Have you inspected your drywall to identify the manufacturer? This is best done by examining the drywall in the attic. Remove insulation and look for markings indicating “Made in China,” “Manufactured in P.R.C.,” or the like.

 

  • A more thorough exam may be done later using a borescope, fiberscope, or videoscope to check behind walls.

 

Step Four: Have you noticed corrosion, pitting, and/or rusting of metallic objects in your home, condominium, or office? Check the copper piping behind the refrigerator or leading to the air conditioner for evidence of a black sooty / dusty deposit. Other places to look include the copper wiring in electrical outlets.
