Homeowner warranties and insurance policies may be of no help to homeowners who have Chinese Drywall due to exclusions in the policies. New Orleans, Louisiana residents, who were initially informed that their homes were built with only United States manufactured materials, are now being informed that the construction company who built their homes is not able to guarantee that Chinese materials were not used in the construction of their homes.
The construction company recently sent homeowners a letter acknowledging the fear of “high levels of sulfur” in the drywall. In the letter, Natalie Culpeper, Sunrise Homes director of operations, writes that while her company’s suppliers were only supposed to use “drywall manufactured in the United State.” Those same suppliers are now “unable to guarantee with certainty that none of the product in question was shipped to our jobs.”
