Tainted Drywall Thought To Injure Homeowners

Comments Off

A construction material, manufactured in China, is believed to be sickening homeowners in a number of states across the U.S. Sulfur-tainted drywall may have been installed in tens of thousands of homes, likely between 2004 – 2006. It is claimed that the defective Chinese drywall emits a foul odor and corrodes the homes’ wiring. Some inhabitants claim to suffer physical ailments, such as respiratory problems, headaches and nosebleeds caused by the tainted Chinese drywall. Lawsuits have been filed in Florida against several drywall manufacturers, distributors and home-building companies, seeking compensation for personal injuries and property damage that homeowners claim are linked to the Chinese drywall. Florida health officials are trying to determine whether the drywall is a medical hazard.
