urgent appeal to home buyers in Florida, Alabama, Mississippi,
Louisiana, Virginia and Southeast Texas
not buy a bank foreclosure in one of these states without a

"As Is" with no disclosure of toxic Chinese drywall.
Toxic Chinese drywall contains harmful levels of chemicals that
are strong enough to degrade copper pipes, or electrical wires,
and at the same time create a unhealthy environment in a home.
The Chinese Drywall Complaint Center's investigation has now
determined with 100% certainty, that imported toxic Chinese
drywall has been installed all over the extreme US Southeast
including the states of Florida, Louisiana, Mississippi,
Alabama, Southeast Texas, and Virginia. Tragically, we believe
toxic Chinese drywall has also been installed in all other
regions of the United States. However, without high thresholds
of heat & humidity, it becomes much more difficult, to identify
homes, and or to see the worst effects of toxic Chinese drywall.
Are There Any State Or Federal Programs Offering Meaningful Disaster
Assistance For Homeowner Victims of The Toxic Chinese Drywall
Disaster In The US, and or especially in Florida, Alabama,
Mississippi, Louisiana, Virginia, or Southeast Texas?
The Chinese Drywall Complaint Center says, "After being first
discovered in 2009, there are still no meaningful federal, or state
disaster relief programs for homeowners stuck with a toxic Chinese
drywall home. No group, or organization has tried harder to get
disaster relief for homeowners stuck in toxic Chinese drywall home,
and we will continue our efforts until federal, and state disaster
relief programs are created, and made available for effected
homeowners, and their families. The
Chinese Drywall Complaint Center is now insisting that the states of
Florida, Alabama, Mississippi, Louisiana, and Texas create
disclosure laws to prevent home buyers, or renters from moving into
a home that contains, or formerly contained toxic Chinese drywall
without full disclosure."
Chinese Drywall Complaint Center Update:
The Chinese drywall Complaint Center now believes that many more US
Southeast homes particularly in Florida, Southeast Texas, Alabama,
Mississippi, Virginia and Louisiana have toxic Chinese drywall than
previous calculations. The group says, "many homes in the US
Southeast have toxic Chinese drywall INTERMIXED with
US made drywall. If these homes were built or remodeled after 2001, we
believe a small amount of imported Chinese drywall is enough to make
an entire house toxic. The net result is instead of ending up with
tens of thousands of toxic US Southeast homes, we are convinced we
have 100,000's of toxic US Southeast homes."
Imported Chinese & Toxic US Made Drywall Time Frames
We believe toxic Chinese drywall was being imported into the US
Southeast as early as 2005. The states where we have discovered
toxic Chinese drywall include Florida, Louisiana, Alabama,
Mississippi, Southeast Texas, and Virginia. The peak years for use
appear to be 2005-2006. However, it would appear that Chinese
drywall was still being sold in Florida as late as early 2009.
What Types Of Toxic Chinese Drywall Is A Priority Of The Chinese
Drywall Complaint Center? Is China standing behind their toxic
Chinese drywall products?
There are two types of toxic Chinese drywall that are priorities for
the Chinese Drywall Complaint Center:
Knauf is the largest drywall maker in the world. Knauf is a closely
held German company. Knauf Tianjin was exported from China and
distributed to the states of Florida, Alabama, Mississippi,
Louisiana, and Texas between 2005, and 2006. The Chinese Drywall
Complaint Center believes Knauf Tianjin is in at least 100,000 homes
in the US Southeast. The new problem-On February 7th 2013 a federal
court in New Orleans approved a global settlement for homeowners,
whose home contained Knauf Tianjin toxic Chinese drywall. Based on
court records only about 5500 homeowners were included in this
other major exporter of toxic Chinese drywall to the US is Chinese
state owned Taishan toxic Chinese drywall. Toxic Taishan Chinese
Drywall was distributed to homebuilders in Florida, Alabama,
Mississippi, Louisiana, Texas, Virginia, and California. The Chinese
Drywall Complaint Center estimates that at a minimum 100,000 US
homes contain Taishan toxic Chinese drywall. The Problem: For the
last four years the government of China has been unwilling to accept
responsibility for their toxic building product that was exported to
the United States. Without pressure from the United States
Department of State, or the Obama Administration the group doubts
much progress will be made on the Taishan litigation for impacted US
homeowners, and their families
National Advocacy Group for Consumer Protection
and Corporate Fair Play
Because the US Federal Government & the Obama Administration have
been virtual no shows to the toxic Chinese drywall disaster, the
Chinese Drywall Complaint Center is now urging individual state
legislatures to enact stringent disclosure laws, so that home buyers
do not unknowingly purchase a home that contains
toxic Chinese drywall in Florida, and the Gulf States.
