    Default rotten egg smell


    If you've installed new dry wall in the last five years and have a
    rotten egg smell in your house, read this article. This affects
    mainly people living in the South Eastern US who rebuilt after the
    hurricanes.
    http://www.cnn.com/2009/US/03/24/chi...all/index.html
    There is a class action law suit you might want to join.

    I love cooking with wine.
    Sometimes I even put it in the food.

    Most of it appears to have been installed in the reworking of homes
    damaged or destroyed by Hurricane Rita. The drywall, aka sheetrock, has
    a gray appearance at the cut edges versus the white of pure gypsum drywall.

    We had to replace the ceiling the living room and the hallway due to
    rain damage where tree limbs went through the roof. Our contractor was
    aware of the problems with Chinese drywall in March of 2006 when we
    finally were able to get the work done. He checked it out throughly and
    showed me how to tell, both by the H2S smell and the color.

    Lots installed along the Mississippi coast and in the New Orleans area
    to my understanding.

    Time to go back to lath and plaster.

    My home has no drywall whatsoever.

    That takes talent to install. Drywall is cheap and fast.

    Except for the stairwell down to the basement, none here either, nor
    in the new house, but both old houses are full of lead paint.

    Sometimes the old ways are better.

    Instead of spending stimulus money on new prisons, they
    could re-train people to be plasterers...

    Re-train violent felons? I'll vote for the prisons - with Chinese
    drywall installed.

    No, obviously, retrain the prison guards and their political
    lobbyists...
