Chinese Drywall May be Banned in the U.S.
A Virginian Congressman has introduced a new bill that calls for a U.S. ban of Chinese drywall.
According to WAVY-TV 10, a Virginia affiliate NBC, the Contaminated Drywall Safety Act calls for Chinese drywall to be declared a “banned hazardous substance.” The new bill also outlines an appropriate disposal method for the product. It also requests that the Secretary of State insist the Chinese government forces responsible drywall manufacturers to submit the American judicial system and comply with any remedies and decisions for homeowners who have been affected by the defective drywall.
Chinese drywall has caused various issues for homeowners such as corroding copper pipes, wiring, metals, and appliances. It is also known to give off a “rotten egg” smell.
