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.

Easy to schedule and super patient with my situation, we had an unresponsive builder who avoided answering calls, waypoint was able to finally get our home inspected and found several issues we would have otherwise been unaware of.
