Corrosive (Chinese) Drywall Inspection

About Corrosive Drywall Inspections

Waypoint Property Inspection has inspected thousands of homes throughout Florida. Some homes built in 2002-2009 might have corrosive drywall that releases toxins in the air and can damage certain appliances or wiring. Our home inspectors can help you find out if your home has Corrosive Drywall, deliver a report of our findings, and provide recommendations. Learn more below.

Chinese Drywall

Info about Corrosive Drywall

Affected 2001-2009

Chinese drywall was installed around 2005 to make up for the lack of building material in the U.S. due to the hurricanes. Most drywall shipments in the US were to the State of Florida.

Repairs

Remediation of Chinese drywall can be very extensive and costly. In most cases, a professional contractor is needed to remove all drywall and properly clean all home components to ensure the house is toxic free.

Emissions

Chinese Drywall emits harmful gases when exposed to the southern climate. The gases can coat other home materials and can quickly cause several serious health effects.

Health Effects

Symptoms depend on level and length of exposure and include: headaches, itching, rash, eye irritation, bloody noses, memory loss, irritability, and more.

How We Test

Inspection

In most cases, looking at copper components of the home can be an indicator of Corrosive drywall as it causes a black residue. This included but is not limited to copper wiring, copper supply lines, or HVAC equipment.

Visible Swabs

We can swab/sample possible toxic drywall to submit for official lab testing. This process can take a few business days to receive accurate results from the lab.

Smell

In some cases, the contaminated drywall can cause the home to give off a rotten egg smell. However, the smell alone cannot be used as an indicator due to other possible causes like well systems.

Next Steps

We can submit a report or action plan for next steps if the inspectors believes there is a concern. Waypoint can also give recommendations for reputable remediation contractors.

Tony (Anthony) from Waypoint Property Inspections was phenomenal! He was incredibly thorough and was kind enough to really explain some of the issues that came up in the inspection with me so I understood them all completely. His knowledge and demeanor was very professional, yet also made me feel like I had a friend that was there to help. I would absolutely recommend giving them a call and asking for Tony specifically!

Chris P. was great! He was very personable and professional. He really did a very thorough job on our potential condo purchase and found some significant issues that needed to be addressed by the buyer. In times where customer service seems to be waning, he and Waypoint were an excellent experience- felt like old times. Waypoint and Chris have my unqualified recommendation.
