Guaranteed and Insurable Chinese Drywall testing now Available Throughout Florida

Certified Chinese Drywall Testing, LLC expands operations throughout Florida.

Online PR News – 29-January-2010 – – Florida consumers in need of Chinese drywall testing can find information on the new website of Certified Chinese Drywall Testing.

In addition to Chinese drywall testing, the new site offers information about Chinese drywall problems, toxic drywall, and Chinese sheetrock. The company provides services throughout the following cities: Miami, Tampa, St. Petersburg, Sarasota, West Palm Beach, Clearwater, Ft. Lauderdale, Jacksonville, Daytona Beach, Orlando, and more. Chinese drywall services are available for all types of homes, including condos, townhouses, single-family homes and duplexes. In addition, Certified Chinese Drywall Testing, LLC offers services for commercial buildings as well. Turnaround times are usually between 7-10 days.

“Our service is the only insurable Chinese drywall testing protocol,” said Weissglass. “As far as I know, there is no other company that can offer an insurable testing protocol. Our protocol is proprietary and we are currently the only company that has developed a process that allows our clients to obtain insurance specifically to protect themselves from Chinese drywall.”

After the inspection is completed, the company will issue a report identifying if any samples tested positive for Chinese drywall. With this information, potential buyers are able to decide if they would like to move forward with the property. Home owners, similarly, are able to decide if they would like to remain in the home or seek alternative living arrangements. Because Chinese drywall has been linked to health concerns, a guaranteed test is the only way to regain the peace of mind necessary to remain in a home suspected of containing Chinese drywall.

Because remediation and repair is very costly – often exceeding $50,000 – Weissglass stresses that testing a home prior to purchase is the only way to avoid the potentially catastrophic results of buying a home that is affected by toxic drywall.

“A visual inspection for Chinese drywall is not sufficient,” Weissglass goes on to say. “Although it is better than no inspection at all, a simple once-over for visual signs of Chinese drywall is similar to simply kicking the tires on a used car before buying. No one I know would buy a used car without some sort of guarantee that they were not buying a lemon. With a home, you are talking about spending 20-30 times as much money as an average car. Why would you risk purchasing a $250,000 home that may need $50,000 in repairs in order to save $1,500 on the inspection fee? Often times, our fee is even less. Compound the financial risk with the risk to one's health and the health of one's family and it makes even less sense to take that risk. We can guarantee you that a home doesn't have Chinese drywall and we are the only ones who will do that.” Weissglass cited several cases where the seller was willing to pay for the inspection fee as part of the transaction.

The company also offers inspections and certifications of homes that have been repaired for Chinese drywall. Many home owners have been approached by their builder. These builders hope to repair the homes they built with Chinese drywall. “These builders should be commended for taking action,” Weissglass says, “but home owners should be sure the work is done correctly and protect themselves and their family from toxic drywall.” Certified Chinese Drywall Testing, LLC can certify that a repaired home no longer contains Chinese drywall.
