The Homeowners Consumer Center is urging all homeowners who have damaged homes in New York, New Jersey, or other states impacted by Super Storm Sandy to be extremely focused on the type of drywall being installed being in their homes, or their building. If the drywall is not stamped with the name of a major US drywall maker, such as USG, or National Gypsum, and stamped with a 2012, or 2011 date stamp-do not allow a contractor to install the drywall. The Homeowners Consumer Center says, "On Saturday November 17th a New Jersey homeowner called us about some blank drywall he was about to purchase--off the back of a flatbed semi truck with North Carolina licence plates. The drywall had no markings on the back. We consider all blank residential drywall to be of Chinese origin. Do not buy any drywall if it is blank, or if is not made in the USA by a very reputable US drywall maker." http://HomeownersConsumerCenter.Com

The Homeowner Consumer Center fears most US citizens have not yet heard about toxic Chinese drywall, or that it is a gigantic problem in states like Florida. In Florida alone the group estimates there are over 100,000 homes that might as well be bulldozed because of toxic Chinese drywall. The Homeowners Consumer Center now worries contractors, or suppliers in the US Southeast that have remaining stockpiles of toxic Chinese drywall will now attempt to dump this toxic building product on unsuspecting homeowners in New York, New Jersey, or other states impacted by Super Storm Sandy. The group says, "We are urging any homeowner in New York, New Jersey, or any other state impacted by Super Storm Sandy to be present when the drywall is dropped off at their home, if drywall repairs are required. We are also urging the homeowner to confirm every piece of the drywall is made by the same company, the company is a well know US Drywall maker, and every piece has the same label. If the drywall is blank, or if it says Made in China, or Knauf Tianjin do not accept delivery." http://HomeownersConsumerCenter.Com
The Homeowners Consumer Center now fears homeowner victims of Super Storm Sandy could become the newest victims of the toxic US toxic Chinese drywall disaster if they are not paying very close attention. The Homeowners Consumer Center says, "One of the biggest problems we have seen in Florida homes that contain toxic Chinese drywall is more often than not the Chinese drywall was intermixed with US made drywall. We are urging homeowners, or property owners in New York, New Jersey, or in any other state impacted by Super Storm Sandy to visually examine the labels of new drywall going into their storm damaged homes, or buildings. If the drywall is blank, or if it not all properly labeled with the name of a well known major US drywall maker-do not accept delivery, and do not let any contractor give you a pitch about saving money, or don't worry about it. You do not want toxic Chinese drywall, or blank drywall that we think is of Chinese origin in your home, or property." http://HomeownersConsumerCenter.Com
