Chinese Drywall Inspection
During the construction boom between 2004 and 2007, foreign drywall was imported by the United States. Importation was further spurred by a shortage of American-made drywall due to the rebuilding demand of nine hurricanes that hit Florida from 2004 to 2005, and widespread damage caused along the Gulf Coast by Hurricane Katrina in 2005. An analysis covering drywall imports since January 2006 showed that more than 550 million pounds of Chinese drywall was brought into the United States since then, enough to build 60,000 average-sized homes.
Many of the occupants of these homes complained of respiratory problems including sore throats, coughs, nose bleeds, and sinus headaches. Aside from the health hazard, many reported corroding copper and other metals in their homes. Homeowners who have verified that their home contains contaminated Chinese drywall are advised to replace any suspect drywall, as well as any potentially damaged copper electrical wiring, fire alarm systems, copper piping, and gas piping. Personal property such as precious metals and mirrors also could be affected. Source: Wikipedia
