Construction Watchdog Group Secures $5 Million in Federal Funding to Fix Chinese Drywall Problems in Louisiana

. By
Baton Rouge, LALouisiana homeowners struggling with Chinese drywall problems in the wake of Hurricanes Katrina and Rita may be in luck, as the Louisiana Recovery Authority (LRA) has announced a $5 million plan to replace the toxic material in homes across the state.

The program, which still requires federal approval and the establishment of a federal standard for drywall materials, would be limited to those with homes rebuilt as part of the Road Home recovery program initiated in the wake of the 2005 storm system, according to the Associated Press.

To date, Road Home has assisted in the rebuilding of more than 125,000 homes in the Bayou State.

Chinese drywall has been used in homes since around 2001. It produces a disturbing odor and is believed to emit sulfur and methane, posing potential risks to structural integrity and electrical systems, property values, and homeowners' health.

The Centers for Disease Control (CDC) and several other consumer care organizations are currently assessing the material for potential health concerns for occupants of homes with Chinese drywall.
