Alabama Chinese Drywall Litigation Attorneys
Thousands of homes throughout Alabama and the United States may have been constructed with defective drywall, sheetrock or synthetic gypsum. Many of these products were manufactured in China, but some were produced in the United States, Europe and other parts of the world.
This defective drywall emits unpleasant sulphur gases which are destructive to wiring and cooling components, can drastically affect the value of your home, and can even cause health problems. At McCallum Hoaglund Cook & Irby, LLP, we help people recover compensation for the hardships caused by the installation of defective Chinese drywall.

Is There Defective Chinese Drywall in Your Home?
At McCallum Hoaglund Cook & Irby, LLP, we help people whose homes have been compromised by construction defects including the installation of defective Chinese drywall. Most Chinese drywall was imported into the United States between 2002 and 2006. It is entirely possible that Chinese drywall was installed in your home before or after these dates, but this is the most likely time frame. Signs that you may have defective Chinese drywall include:
- An unpleasant sulphur smell (similar to the smell of rotten eggs)
- Accelerated corrosion of air conditioner and refrigerator coils
- Corrosion of electrical and computer wiring
- Corrosion of metallic household items and surfaces
Also, you may want to look for labels or stamps on the back of the drywall, indicating the product was "Made in China" or denoting a specific manufacturer such as Knauf Tianjin, Tianjin Gypsum or Tianjin Plasterboard.
