Chinese Drywall Claims

Did you recently purchase a new home only to notice odd smells and see visible discoloration of your drywall? Have you suffered from respiratory problems, nose bleeds headaches, or irritated eyes? If so, its possible that your new house may have been constructed with defective Chinese drywall.

Due to shortages in drywall products between 2004 and 2006, many builders in Florida used drywall imported from China in the construction of homes, apartments, and buildings. This drywall, in many cases, is now believed to be defective, resulting in the stench of rotting eggs that homeowners have been unable to eliminate. Some have even been forced to leave their homes because the odor was so severe. Residents have also reported problems with their air conditioning systems.

Both Lennar Homes and Taylor Morrison have had the most reports of defective Chinese drywall, though other companies also used Chinese drywall. The problem has been acknowledged by Lennar Homes and they are willing to replace defective drywall, as well as air conditioning, pipes and wiring damaged by the fumes.

For more information on defective Chinese drywall, please feel free to contact G&A.
