    On July 13, 2010 my contractor purchased drywall from Lowes and installed it in 1200 square feet of my home that week. The drywall was manufactured in the USA by Georgia Pacific Gypsum LLC.


    How do I know if my new drywall is bad?

    I purchased drywall from the Lowes store in Dickson, TN in October 2010. Shortly after part of it was cut and hung on the walls I noticed a rash covering most of my body. Then the horrible itching began. Then came 2 different medical doctors, 1 Dermatologist and a trip to the emergency room. At one point my eyes swelled almost completely shut. This drywall when cut had a yellow dust coming from it. Not the usual white. This YELLOW dust is a form of MOLD. A MOLD I learned I was highly allergic to. After almost 4 months of pure agony not knowing it was the sheetrock, I returned all 20 pieces (cut and uncut) to the store in Dickson, TN. Only to be told by the Manager in charge that day that I was Lying about the yellow dust and he was not returning my money. The corporate office returned all of my purchase. What about the 4 months of pure HELL this MOLD put me through??? What about the $3,500 in Medical bills that resulted from this tainted material that they knew about???

    Why was their sulfur in the sheetrock? What effects are their on the installer ?

    Because it is not 100% pure Gypsum anymore a large percentage is recycled "by products" of coal fired electricity generation plants. the stuff is called fly ash, it is added to the gypsum to supposedly be more green and recycle. But they are putting out a inferior product that ruins peoples homes and health ,it emits sulpher blah blah to much to say google it , and check out youtube videos keywords lowes drywall lawsuit deadline to file a claim is May 15th 2011 you better hurry up ………..

    I sent a claim from in early july of this year and have heard nothing back should I be concerned?

    • LAS_Admin September 27, 2011 at 6:47 am

      Hi R Lollar, No, not necessarily (and usually not if it's for a class action settlement). Class action settlements can take a long time to process. For the Lowe's drywall settlement, the best place to find out what's going on is over at the claims administrator's website. See for more info.

    My house was built in 04/05 by DR Horton. We had to have them send out there contractor the winter of 05/06 because of snow in the attic. They had to replace part of the drywall in are bedroom. We have spent the last year trying to figure out wy this room is making us sick. We have had to move out of this room. How do we find out were the drywall came from.

    Has anyone heard of the “final approval” for this settlement? When I spoke to their Executive Support person just a while ago, all I got was more “stonewalling” about the Dry Wall Settlement! He told me that I was the only person even asking about the settlement! How can that be when thousands of people bought their defective sheetrock. He was very robotic and kept referring me back to the 1-877–497-3512 number or the web site. CBS should do an update on this class action settlement.

    Nothing on the Internet, and nothing in the mail. I suppose we are to be left in the dark breathing sulfur while the Lawyers take their huge checks to the Bank. Pathetic!

    this settlement should have been completed by now , or so i was told by the people handling the case..i dont have those names right in front of me – but we rebuild after a fire in sept 2009 – building all the way until sept 2010 – when of course we purchased this defective drywall…the resp issues and eye problems have been going on for 6+months…and its horrible….i have a huge master bedroom with sitting area and can not use it until i have the $2000 to replace it…like i said most of our ins money from the fire did not cover all expenses regarding the rebuild – so alot was our money from contents – didnt get all expected/ins idiot…..anyway its been a hassle///we dont have 2000$ laying around…so that was alot for us to use that money…now can not use the room…sucks

  • Rene February 22, 2012 at 7:31 pm

    To date (22 Feb 2012), I still have not heard a single thing about this issue. I filed my claim within the allotted time and even provided proof of purchase. Does anyone know when I will hear something back? They won't even acknowledge receipt of my claim! Thanks.

    I recently received a $250 gift card from the Settlement Administrator for Lowes. There is a lot of data at or the Claims Administrator at 877-497-3512. I installed some stinky drywall in 2008, 34 sheets in the basement. It stunk like ammonia/urine for several months. I was in contact with the manufacturer and had them out to the house. I'm wondering what their position is on this settlement and where the current litigation is with them, if any.
