Earlier in the summer – one of the Hoboken411 readers from Florida (the 4th highest readership by state – hello retirees!) mentioned that he had some inferior (smelly) drywall in his condominium. Didn’t make much of it until three other readers in NJ mentioned it as well (one in S. Jersey, the other two in Hoboken)
Chinese drywall cheap – but can stink!
“During this so called boom on housing, builders bought cheap Chinese dry wall because the American suppliers ran out. This drywall smells toxic and contains pot ash. I’m sure I have it in my place. With the recent humid and moist weather – there is this smell of rotten eggs or sulfur! Here’s what I found out from the Chicago Tribune!:
“The Chinese drywall was far less expensive than the American product – Chinese drywall sold for as little as $3 a sheet, while the price for American drywall reached $22 a sheet.”
Those damn cheap developers! Anyone else notice this in town, or are these just isolated incidents?
