Newer Homes May Be Affected By Toxic Drywall
Up to 60,000 homes in the US may be affected by allegedly toxic drywall that was installed from 2001 thru 2006. The drywall was imported from China during the housing bubble to handle demand. The drywall releases gases that can corrode metals in a home, including copper gas and water pipes, copper wiring, air conditioning coils, and electronics. Remediation requires full removal and replacement of the drywall. At fault companies are still being determined and damage claims are stacking quickly. Expect this story to continue for quite some time.
