The US Consumer Product Safety Commission and HUD have stirred up some controversy by siding with the National Association of Home Builders (NAHB) that not all electrical wiring in a home with defective Chinese drywall needs to be replaced. These three groups opinions and standards vary from a federal Judge who says it all needs to be replaced. The government groups have testing to support their decisions. The Judge has ordered his standard be used on 300 homes being repaired by a national drywall company.
What component does the government and NAHB endorse for replacement? Check out the story. The issue remains that it is going to be very difficult to create a standard until it is determined how a settlement can be funded.
