The Chinese Drywall Complaint Center is urging homeowners with a specific type of imported Chinese drywall called Knauf to stand up and be counted right now, while there still could be time. The imported Chinese drywall product called Knauf has been discovered in subdivisions, or condominium projects in and around the metro areas of Fort Meyers, Cape Coral, Miami/Dade, Tampa/Saint Petersburg, & Orlando, Florida, Montgomery, Alabama, New Orleans & its North Shore, in Louisiana, Houston, and Austin,Texas. The group is saying,"while the December 2nd deadline to identify Knauf Chinese drywall may have come and gone, we are still trying to identify Chinese imported drywall homes with this type of wallboard, in the hopes they can still be included." The group says,"our biggest fear is that the Knauf Chinese drywall maker, may be the only actual Chinese drywall manufacturer that will settle with completely innocent homeowners in Florida, Louisiana, Alabama, Mississippi, Virginia, Southeast Texas, or any other state where this imported drywall product has been discovered. Please share this information with you neighbors if you live in a subdivision, or condominium project, if the imported Chinese drywall product called Knauf has been discovered." Homeowners with Chinese imported Knauf drywall can call the Chinese Drywall Complaint Center anytime at 866-714-6466, or contact the group via its web site at Http://ChineseDrywallComplaintCenter.Com
What major homebuilders used Chinese Drywall? According to the New Orleans Times Picayune. "D. R. Horton, a major national builder that has constructed three subdivisions in the Baton Rouge area, said roughly 50 houses have the drywall. Denise Bell, whose lives in a D. R. Horton home built in 2006, disagreed. "I think that number is extremely low," said Bell, a resident of the Westminster subdivision near Baton Rouge who found the tainted drywall in her house." According to the Associated Press, "The homebuilder Lennar is suing Knauf Plasterboard over building defects related to this product," and "WCI has admitted to using this product in their securities filings." AP has also reported that Interior Exterior Supply of New Orleans, & Banner Supply of Florida sold the Knauf drywall product to homebuilders.

We have found it without problem in the US Southeast, because we think high heat, combined with high thresholds of humidity are the triggers, that set off the worst effects of toxic Chinese drywall. The Chinese Drywall Complaint Center is saying, "the easiest way to check to see if you have this type of drywall is to go to your attic, and see if Knauf is written on the back of the drywall, (use extreme caution when doing this--if you cannot do this because of physical limitations, see if a friend or neighbor can help with this inspection)." The group is saying "the time lines are 2001 to 2008; we think Chinese drywall was used by small, medium, and large national homebuilders throughout the US, especially in the US Southeast, Southwest and Northwest.

Note from the Chinese Drywall Complaint Center: "We are trying to help all victims of toxic Chinese drywall. Exposure to toxic Chinese drywall is hazardous to your health, as most homeowners in Florida, or Louisiana already know. If your subdivision or condominium project has Chinese drywall we want to hear from you. We are not a failed government agency, trying to hide this problem. There are children involved in this largely ignored US environmental disaster." The group says,"and the absolutely pathetic US Consumer Products Safety Commission is now saying their may be a link between health effects, and toxic Chinese drywall. Ya Think? Toxic Chinese drywall homes are known to have gone through numerous air conditioning coils. And there has been not one US recall of toxic Chinese drywall? Change-what a lie."
