Assessment

Do you have Chinese drywall?

According to experts, the public may use the following criteria to assess whether homes and condos were built with toxic Chinese-made drywall:

  • They were built or remodeled between 2001 and 2008
  • They have a sulfur or rotten-egg smell, particularly when windows and doors are shut
  • Residents suffer allergies, nose bleeds, upper-respiratory problems and other symptoms that disappear when they leave the homes for an extended time
  • Air conditioning units have repeated coil corrosion
  • The copper in the home, from the electrical ground wires to the copper coils that are in the air conditioning, turn black
