Chinese Drywall advice from the Fed - Rip it Out Palm Beach Florida newspaper reports today

Chinese Drywall advice from the Fed - Rip it Out Palm Beach Florida newspaper reports today

Walking through my local Publix supermarket this morning in Palm Beach Gardens Florida I glanced at the headlines in the Palm Beach Post and I see that an update on the massive Chinese Drywall problem in South Florida.  It is advice from the federal government that the homes with Chinese Drywall have it ripped out and replaced.  No answer as to who pays for this tragic event for the homeowners but recognizing this is a huge problem and needs to be addressed.

I thought I would share a video of what a home in Port St Lucie Florida looks like going through the process of having the Chinese Drywall ripped out that was provided for me by a fellow team member.  He sent it to me recently and it really shows the amount of work we are talking about in trying to remove Chinese Drywall and then the rebuilding of the home back to the way it was at one time.  Palm Beach, St Lucie, Broward, and Martin counties along with many other counties in South Florida are living with this problem in real time.
