Does My Home Have Chinese Drywall?

South Carolina Defective Chinese Drywall Lawyer

Defective Chinese Drywall has been located in at least 33 states, with more and more homeowners discovering the problem throughout the South East, including South Carolina, North Carolina, Virginia, West Virginia, Georgia, Florida, Mississippi, Alabama, Texas, Louisiana, and beyond.

Approximately 500 million pounds of potentially toxic Chinese drywall were imported into the United States between 2004 and 2008. That’s enough to build nearly 100,000 homes!

Homes built with faulty Chinese Drywall have a distinct “rotten egg” type odor which is emitted from the drywall and can corrode and damage your air conditioner, appliances, and cause health problems.

Charleston, South Carolina received the third largest shipment, bringing in almost 18.7 pounds of drywall. It is likely that additional problems will be discovered in homes in the South East and nationwide.

If you notice any of the following indications existing in your home you need to contact our Chinese drywall attorney to determine if your home contains defective Chinese drywall and to ensure that your rights are protected:

• An unpleasant sulfur based or rotten egg like odor;

• Electrical problems including corrosion or blackening of electrical wires behind your light switches and wall switches;

• You have had to replace A/C systems or components;

• Your air conditioner, computer wiring, and metal items such as frames corrode, including your external copper line;

• Discloration of wood furniture;

• You have experienced upper respiratory problems, including nose bleeds, a rash, headaches, dizzy spells, or insomnia and your symptoms decrease and/or disappear when you leave your home.

The Strom Law Firm, LLC is investigating potential Chinese Drywall lawsuits against the companies, builders, and manufacturers responsible for installing Defective Chinese Drywall in your home throughout the South East and Nationwide.

In fact, lawsuits have already been filed by several homeowners against Knauf Gips KG and three of its Chinese units, Knauf Plasterboard (Wuhu), Knauf Plasterboard (Dongguan) and Knauf Plasterboard (Tianjin). These lawsuits seek to hold these companies accountable and to obtain reimbursement costs incurred in replacing defective drywall.

Repairing a home damaged by Chinese Drywall can be expensive. In most cases, owners are forced to move out, gut their home to remove the drywall, and rebuild the interior. Drapes, furniture, carpet, and appliances must all be replaced as part of the repair. In fact, some experts are claiming that Chinese drywall may damage the structure of your home making it important that you protect your rights and financial security.

As a consumer, you also need to know that any home built during 2004 and 2008 may contain standard drywall as well as defective drywall, making it critical that you take multiple drywall samples from your home when investigating whether you have Chinese drywall.
