Chinese Drywall


An estimated 30,000 Florida homes may contain the Chinese drywall.
The wire service reports that China's General Administration for Quality Supervision Inspection and Quarantine told Xinhu is "very concerned" about reports that the building material was creating sulfer-like odors and corroding such metallic objects as air conditioning components, nails, fixtures and in some cases, jewelry and picture frames.
Sen. Bill Nelson, D-Fla. and U.S. Rep. Robert Wexler, D-Boca Raton, have both introduced bills aimed at barring imports of the material and requiring the U.S. Consumer Product and Safety Commission to investigate.
"Right now the house is worth zero," Gary Schultheis
"We're vacillating. One minute we're staying, one minute we're rebuilding, one minute we're leaving. We don't know what to do," homeowner Mary Ann Schultheis
"I'm holding back tears," Alana Consolo said as she walked through the house, which is in the middle of the reconstruction project. "I have chills and I'm angry -- really, really angry -- and really sad, too."
