Are You a Victim of Chinese Drywall
During the building boom that took place just after the millennium, a number of builders used drywall manufactured in China as materials in home construction. At the time, this seemed like a cheap and effective method of procuring necessary construction materials. It wasn't until recently that it was discovered that a combination of the chemicals present in Chinese drywall can cause severe illness, including adverse effects on:
- Growing children
- Sense of vision, touch and smell
- Cardiovascular systems
Equally important is the fact that the chemicals that make Chinese
drywall so dangerous can be transferred from the built elements
in an affected home to other structural parts and personal belongings
that are within the home.
There is still some debate regarding the exact origin of the faulty
Chinese drywall that has been brought into the USA and used in homes,
but those families who suspect their home may have been built using
these toxic, dangerous parts need to be able to protect themselves
- particularly their children and older relatives, who are in general
the ones most affected. This can include having homes inspected,
contacting builders to have the drywall and other contaminated parts
of a home replaced, and even filing as part of single-family or
class action suits and participating in litigation against both
manufacturers of and builders who use Chinese drywall.
If you suspect that your home may be contaminated by Chinese drywall
- either because someone in your home is manifesting the above listed
symptoms, or because of a strange smell (some report the scent of
ammonia or rotten eggs in their home, both of which have been found
to be results of Chinese Drywall's presence) then it's important
to contact an attorney immediately to discuss your options for restoring
your home as a safe haven for you and your family. Chinese drywall
attorneys can help you navigate the complicated maze of regulations
and laws regarding your home and its warranty, your family and their
health, the medical treatment of those family members who may have
been adversely affected, the manufacturers who provided the materials,
and most importantly, the builders who used them in the construction
of your home.
