I'm referring to tainted and corrosive drywall imported from China, popularly called "Chinese drywall," even though not all Chinese product is tainted and corrosive.
While most of the attention has been focused on Florida, experts now think the problem is Texas will eventually surpass what is happening in Florida. Current estimates project more than 100,000 homes in the Lone Star state to have some degree of tainted drywall in them.
Our friends at Foreman and Associates have teamed up with Real Estate Training systems to offer a comprehensive seminar—intended for home inspectors and other interested parties—answering such real world questions as these:
- What is tainted/corrosive "Chinese" sheetrock?
- How to identify a structure that has it?
- When was tainted sheetrock installed?
- Why should I care?
- How can it affect the client?
- What is the repair or remediation?
- How do I inspect for it?
- What are the potential health issues?
- What is my professional liability?
- How can I best protect my client and myself?
Seminar attendees will be eligible for 16 hours of TREC (Texas Real Estate Commission) certified Continuing Education Credits.Check it out.
