Defective drywall was imported to the United States in massive amounts in the course of the housing boom between 2004 and 2008. It appears that when the importation of defective Drywall Quote first started, nobody realized how many issues it would trigger. I challenge builders to open the doors of their imported containers full of Chinese drywall and not detect the smell. That alone should have raised a red flag!

Over time those drywall begins to emit toxic fumes and odors that smell like rotten eggs. As if the smell isn’t bad enough, a lot of people have turned out to be ill from chemicals found in drywall from those nations and houses themselves are falling apart with the defective drywall. For example, copper plumbing are corroding and appliances are breaking down, all consequently of your defective drywall.

Determined homeowners have submitted claims regarding the complications associated with defective drywall with their insurance agencies only to find that the issues of defective materials employed in construction will not be covered in their policies.

To add insult to injury, the insurance policies on properties constructed with defective drywall are then canceled, especially here in Cape Coral. To complicate matters further, other insurance agencies don’t want to sell policies on properties built with defective drywall, so desperate residence owners are left without insurance coverage on their properties. Since it is needed to have insurance on houses that are not completely paid for, this puts property owners in a real emergency and some of them even lose their homes simply because of this situation.

The number of properties with these drywall in Cape Coral is huge. This is due to the fact that, between 2002 and 2006, Cape Coral was an under developed area where people from south and north Florida came to buy cheap land, build on it quick and flip those properties. They use their own home equity to do so. What happened is builders were quickly sold out with drywall, making them to look elsewhere for that product, coming most of the time from foreign countries back then.
