What Is Chinese Drywall?

“Chinese drywall” refers to an environmental health issue involving defective drywall manufactured in China and imported to the United States starting in 2001. Laboratory tests have identified emissions of the sulfurous gases carbon disulfide, carbonyl sulfide, and hydrogen sulfide. These emissions, which have the odor of rotten eggs, worsen as temperature and humidity rise and cause copper surfaces to turn black and powdery, a chemical process indicative of reaction with hydrogen sulfide. Copper pipes, wiring, and air conditioner coils are affected, as well as silver jewelry. Homeowners have reported a variety of symptoms, including respiratory problems such as asthma attacks, chronic coughing and difficulty breathing, as well as chronic headaches and sinus issues.

Most traditional drywall installers DO NOT have the training required to remediate Chinese Drywall. Chinese Drywall is a SERIOUS matter that can do extensive damage to your home and cause serious health risks. It should NOT be treated as a small problem that can be resolved by just any drywall installer.
