In the recent real estate boom between 2002 and 2007 builders used drywall, gypsum board, sheetrock or wallboard that was manufactured in the U.S. However, a shortage of drywall in the U.S. forced many construction companies to purchase product that was manufactured in China and other countries.
The drywall that was imported from China was usually involves homes built between 2004 and 2007 around the time of the real estate boom. In late 2008 imported Chinese Drywall was found to be the cause of many complaints from home owners.
Exposed copper wires and water supply lines begin to turn black and deteriorate. Air conditioning systems began malfunctioning due to corrosion of the coils. Electrical connections in some household appliances deteriorated causing them to fail. If your home exhibits any of said symptoms your home may have Chinese drywall.
Most of the home components that can be affected by Chinese drywall are hidden behind walls from the inspector’s view. Electronic equipment in the home, copper refrigerant lines inside of air handlers and wiring inside the receptacles require a more invasive inspection.
