I contracted to built home in Florida and it was finished in November 2006. Recently
we had air conditioning problems and called to have it repaired. The serviceman who
did the reapairs noticed some unusual things and suggested we inspect the house
further, which we did. We found copper pipes, ground wires in receptacles, our air handling
coils, our refrigerator, pipes under sinks and toilets were black or were in the process of
turning black. We had noticed an odor in the house when it was shut up and thought it
might be the new carpeting. We contacted our builder and he came to inspect. He
had no explanation for us. He did say his sub-contractor assured him that no chinese
dry wall was installed in any of the homes he had built.

We decided to have a professional company come and inspect on March 16. They found Taishan Drywall throughout the house. The house will have to be rebuilt from the studs up, including
drywall, wiring and copper piping at great expense, which we cannot afford.

In the meantime, we have to keep our house well ventilated as my husband has developed
a cough and I have been experiencing burning eyes. Who knows what other health
issues will develop over the long run?

We were a long time preparing for our retirement and figured with a brand new home
we would have no big expenses for a long time. Already the microwave is dieing a slow
death and who knows how long before other appliances stop operating.

I can't believe that our government let this Chinese Drywall be brought into our
country in the first place and second, has not taken steps to have United States Citizens
made whole again by forcing these Chinese Drywall companies to repair all the homes
involved.
