What is Chinese drywall?
“Chinese drywall” refers to an environmental health issue involving defective drywall manufactured in China, then imported to the United States and used in residential construction between 2001 and 2009 — affecting an estimated 100,000 homes in more than 20 states.
The defective drywall emits sulfur compounds, leading to electrical and air conditioner damage and possible health problems (including respiratory problems, nose bleeds, headaches, and irritated eyes).
How Can I Tell If My Home Has Problem Drywall?
The typical signs of Chinese drywall are corrosion to your copper piping and electric wiring, failure of the A/C coils, and corrosion or black spots on faucets and even the backs of mirrors.
