The nightmare known as Chinese Drywall has become a product liability for the construction
industries. It is not only very costly for the construction industry but more importantly, it is widely reported that it is also a danger to human health. People exposed to this toxic drywall are suffering serious problems such as nose bleeding, rashes, continuous scratching, sneezing, coughing and difficulty breathing.

Chinese Drywall Advisors understands the Chinese drywall problem and are committed to provide solutions for this nightmare. Chinese Drywall Advisors testing features non-destructive X-Ray Fluorescence (XRF) testing as an integral part of its certified testing protocol.

Not knowing the status of your home may cost you BIG MONEY, not to mention POTENTIAL SAFETY and HEALTH HAZARDS

We offer a Chinese Drywall Clearance Inspection proving the home does not have defective drywall with the option to qualify for an upcoming warranty.

Call us now at 888-887-5387 to apply for Chinese drywall testing and inspection or visit our website http://www.chinesedrywalladvisors.com for further details and information

Lets see, according to your website as many as 65,000 homes could be at risk of having this drywall. According to the US Census, in 2007 there were 128,203,000 homes in the US. So you have a .0507 chance of having this drywall in your home (or 1 in 1972). I better rush to your website and spend all of my money to ensure my family’s safety, or I could take my chances. Pretty tough decision considering my home has plaster walls…..

spam or not (which it certainly is), The builders conscientiously chose to go with Chinese Drywall (and plywood), based on profit margins. Now they are paying a high price for replacing said products. Seems like trying to be cheap cost more than it was really worth.

Being in the construction business it seems there is always something new coming along to worry about…..and for lawyers to look to get paid for. Mold, radon, Chinese drywall, sound, moisture, asbestos, ADA, FHA….and on and on. Now don’t get me wrong I believe in building a safe home for people to live in and have always tried to keep the highest quality but we all pay the price when I have to hire 10 different consultants to cover everything.

For instance we now build buildings so tight because of all of the waterproofing consultants recommendations that buildings are sealed up so tight that if water does get in there is no way out… thus creating more of a chance for mold and trapping any radon gas or even gas from Chinese drywall that does make its way into a home.

Didn’t mean to get started by a spam post but this is a touchy subject for me…..

@ahock, lets take it one step further and spam them with 10,000 emails. See how they like a taste of their own medicine.

Trust me, anyone suffering from having this drywall in their home knows it. There is no doubt between the sulfur odor and the blackening of every copper pipe.

The builders were unaware of this issue at first and it just may ruin many who meant no harm by using it. Primarily as I understand it, it found it’s way into the country through the south eastern states due to one of our gypsum plants going down and high demand after hurricanes.

with all the problems with chinese products,why do we as consumers get sucked into buying there products?
of course it’s the money. my company was screwed by the chinese in the doors we had them make for us.
they were mandated to build the product as ordered,and soon as we leave, they would change the wood, the glue,
or methods of moisture content. it just goes on and on.
ask the people that bought the chinese dog food,kids toys with lead in paint,wall board,lead and cadmium in jewlery,
and i read somewhere the chinese are selling us frozen food for people to eat.
i bet those contractors,unknownly, bought and installed the drywall have wished they would have looked closer at the specifications. i guess it’s buyer be ware for sure!
