Chinese Drywall Lawsuit
Pursue Compensation with an Alabama Construction Litigation Attorney
During a construction boom between 2004 and 2005, there was a shortage of domestic drywall, created in part by rebuilding efforts after hurricanes on the Gulf Coast. Between 2004 and 2008, builders imported unprecedented amounts of Chinese drywall because it was an inexpensive and abundant substitute.

The Problems with Chinese Drywall
Chinese drywall was found to contain higher levels of sulfuric and organic compounds than the U.S. samples, including strontium sulfide. Strontium sulfide emits hydrogen sulfide gas when exposed to moist air, explaining the “rotten egg” smell found by homeowners in the humid South.
This toxic and corrosive gas has the following effect:
- It destroys electrical wiring and appliances.
- It turns copper tubing, silver jewelry and silverware black.
- It destroys the metal in air conditioning coils.
- It causes rotten smells of sulfur.
In addition, it is potentially responsible for illnesses such as respiratory problems, nosebleeds and headaches (from breathing airborne sulfuric compounds).
