After experiencing numerous issues with our electricity in the home we built in 2006, an electrician suggested we have a Chinese drywall inspection (September 2017). In October of 2017 we learned that the house we built in 2006 has Chinese drywall from at least two companies (Knauf and [REDACTED]). We moved out of our house and joined a class action lawsuit, but have been unable to determine an appropriate, safe and sustainable course of action. We had replaced the AC, and it had been repaired numerous times during the time we were in the house. We also experienced some respiratory issues.
