New chinese drywall suit filed in Florida

This suit maybe the first on the “Treasure Coast.”

“The owners of a town house in the Tradition neighborhood of Port St. Lucie have filed a lawsuit in Circuit Court against the builder Centerline Homes for using Chinese-made drywall.

In the lawsuit, Frank and Mark Gitto claim the Chinese drywall built into their home at 10360 Stephanie Way in 2005 is the type that “emits various sulfide gases and/or other chemicals” creating “noxious, ‘rotten-egg-like’ odors.”

The suit, believed to be the first on the Treasure Coast to address possible problems with Chinese drywall, claims the “off-gassing” also can corrode air-conditioner and refrigerator coils and other wiring as well as household utensils and jewelry.”

    How can i find out what other builders are being investigated with the Chinese drywall issue?

      Search through my blog. I’ve noted a number of builders in my several postings about the issue. The other approach is to search the US Consumer Product Safety Commission. I believe they are researching these issues pretty thoroughly.
