Defective Drywall Contaminating Homes

Drywall imported from China and used in new home construction and renovations in the United States has been associated with the release of toxic sulfur compounds, emitting an offensive “rotten egg” smell throughout the home, and causing extensive damage to residential wiring, air conditioning and other electrical appliances, as well as potential health risks for homeowners.

Homeowners exposed to sulfur-based gases may also experience adverse health effects such as eye irritation, headaches, bloody nose, respiratory distress, and other symptoms resembling bronchitis and asthma.

Chinese drywall can be identified by a “Made in China” stamp. However, in some instances, defective drywall may have been relabeled by American suppliers and importers and may not bear a “Made in China” label.

Property damage associated with Defective Chinese Drywall:

  • A strong odor of sulfur or “rotten eggs” in the home
  • Corrosion and deterioration of copper wiring, pipes, air conditioner and refrigerator coils, plumbing fixtures
  • Failure of air-conditioning units, plumbing equipment, household appliances, or other metal components
