Construction Firm Begins Fixing Florida Homes Containing Chinese Drywall

. By
Fort Lauderdale, FLFort Lauderdale, Florida-based construction company Moss & Associates was chosen recently to fix homes that have been affected by Chinese drywall, the Miami Herald reports.

The firm will reportedly work to replace electrical wiring, fire safety equipment and other portions of homes that were damaged by the tainted drywall, according to the news provider. It is believed that Chinese drywall can cause metals to become corroded and lead to electrical problems.

The project that will be carried out by the construction firm originally included 300 homes in the South Florida area and is currently in its preliminary construction phase, the news source said.

"For some homeowners, this may be an attractive program, but others don't find it as appealing as being compensated with monetary damages and completing the work themselves," said an attorney representing some of the affected homeowners.

Knauf Plasterboard Tianjin, which produced one-fifth of the defective drywall, previously agreed in a federal court settlement to help pay for remediation work needed for homeowners, according to the Fort Myers News-Press.
