The vast majority of US homes known to have toxic Chinese drywall are limited to Florida, Alabama, Mississippi, Louisiana, Virginia, or Southeast Texas. The house has to have been built, remodeled, or repaired after 2000.  Most homes that will have the toxic Chinese Drywall were built between 2001 & 2008.

We are now very focused on identifying toxic Chinese drywall in homes that were damaged by Hurricanes Katrina, Ike, Rita, or Ivan. Especially when talking about the extreme US Southeast, homes may, or may not have a sulphur or rotten egg smell
