Chinese Drywall Inspection Confirms Toxic Chinese Drywall in Palm Bay

Chinese Drywall confirmed in a Palm Bay, FL neighborhood

Toxic Chinese Drywall

I was called out to do a Chinese drywall inspection on a home that was built in 2006. This beautiful home was located in a gated community neighborhood in the Melbourne / Palm Bay area on the Space Coast of Florida.
The concerning thing is that this paticular home was the model home when this entire was in the construction phase. So this mean that the whole neighbor hood could potentially have the toxic Chinese Drywall!
The home was all set for closing when the final home inspection came back as “Possible Chinese Drywall” due to the home being built in the timeframe when Chinese drywall was being shipped here to the East Coast of the United States by the container and ship load..

When I arrived to the home for the Chinese drywall inspection there was a strong odor that smelt like rotten eggs (sulphur). And there was also black corrosion on any copper and also on the the a/c coils. The mirrors in the bathrooms had pitting and desilvering. These are all are the classic symptoms of a toxic Chinese drywall.

Toxic Chinese Drywall Confirmed!

Unfortunately the only remedy for this home is to gut the entire interior from the band new hardwood, carpet, tile, cabinets, ceiling fans, light fixtures, air conditioning system, drywall, metal framing, tubs, showers, baseboards and doors.

Pretty much the home will be back down to only a cement block shell!

Toxic Chinese Drywall Identification Method

(1) An initial or threshold inspection to find visual signs of metal corrosion and evidence of drywall installation during the relevant time period, and

(2) The identification of corroborating evidence or characteristics.

The identification process is two steps:

Step 1: Threshold Inspection

(a) Blackening of copper electrical wiring and/or air conditioning evaporator coils; and

(b) The installation of new drywall (for new construction or renovations) between 2001 and 2008. A positive result for this step (including both criteria) is a prerequisite to any further consideration.

Visual inspection must show:

Step 2: Corroborating Evidence

Because it is possible that corrosion of metal in homes can occur for other reasons, it is important to obtain additional corroborating evidence of problem Chinese Drywall. Homes with the characteristic metal corrosion problems must also have at least 2 of these corroborating conditions if the new drywall was installed between 2005 and 2008.
For installations between 2001 and 2004, at least 4 of the following conditions must be met. Collecting evidence of these corroborating conditions will in some cases require professional assessors and/or testing by analytical laboratories.

(a) Corrosive conditions in the home, demonstrated by the formation of copper sulfide on copper coupons (test strips of metal) placed in the home for a period of 2 weeks to 30 days or confirmation of the presence of sulfur in the blackening of the grounding wires and/or air conditioning coils;

(b) Confirmed markings of Chinese origin for drywall in the home;

(c) Strontium levels in samples of drywall core found in the home (i.e. excluding the exterior paper surfaces) exceeding 1200 parts per million (ppm);

(d) Elemental sulfur levels in samples of drywall core found in the home exceeding 10 ppm;

(e) Elevated levels of hydrogen sulfide, carbonyl sulfide and/or carbon disulfide emitted from samples of drywall from the home when placed in test chambers using ASTM Standard Test Method D5504-08 or similar chamber or headspace testing;

(f) Corrosion if copper metal to form copper sulfide when copper is placed in test chambers with drywall samples taken from the home.

Happy New Year! A Brevard County Contractors 2014 year in review

I just wanted to say Happy New Year to all my past, present and future customers and fellow contractors. It’s been a very busy year and I’ve worked with some great people throughout the year.

Looking over my 2014 year in review, It seemed like the economy here in Brevard County was on the upswing with lot’s of activity in the residential real estate and existing homeowner markets. Which included a bounty of renovation, remodel, home improvement and repair contracts throughout 2014.

For that I Am very grateful.

I completed many interior and exterior painting projects, stucco repair, pool deck repair, ceiling repair, drywall repair, texture matching and even soundproofing from Melbourne to Viera, Melbourne Beach, Suntree, Cocoa Beach, Satellite Beach, Indian Harbour Beach, Indialantic, Cape Canaveral, Cocoa and Merritt Island here on the Space Coast.

Here’s just a few of the many completed before and after project photos from 2014:

The paper tape joints were cracking and starting to fall down on this ceiling in Viera.

This type of problem is very common on interior and exterior drywall ceilings. Over time the paper drywall tape begins to crack and fall down due to the heat and humidity from our harsh Florida climate.

The extreme weather changes cause the wood framing to expand and contract on a daily basis in turn causing just enough movement of your ceiling to crack and pop the paper tape joints. Especially if the ceiling was nailed or not enough screws were added during the drywall installation process when your home was built.

Roof leak caused major water damage to this ceiling in Suntree, Fl

With all of the rain we’ve been getting here in Brevard County this Summer, it’s no doubt that there are many homes that have had a roof leak. Which leads to potential water damage on ceilings and walls. What’s worse is if the roof leak continues, all of the moisture can lead to wood rot and is the perfect food source termites in any wood framing, furring strips, roof trusses and roof decking.

Even if you have a block home, wood is most likely part of your roofing system and possibly in your wall framing in order to be able to attach the drywall to a block wall when your home was built.

Roof Leak?

The best piece of advice I can give you is when looking for a contractor to repair your roof, ceiling or drywall be sure to hire a licensed contractor to get the best results!

Damage assessment

Damage assessment of ceiling due to roof leak

This blog post is about a water damaged pool patio ceiling caused by a roof leak in the suntree area of Melbourne, Florida.

The ceiling had been repaired previously and by the looks of it, the roof continued to leak until the flat tile roof was completely redone recently by a licensed local roofing contractor.

Once I dug into this exterior ceiling it was apparent that the water damage was more extensive than it looked when the drywall ceiling was in place. I removed most of the ceiling and along with the drywall coming down, so did the blown in insulation…

Not only was a large section drywall ceiling in need of replacement. The furrings strips that hold the ceiling up had termite damage and rusted screws from all of the moisture from the roof leak.

After speaking with the homeowner about what plan of action it was going to take to get the extra framing replaced and resecured.

Once getting the ok to proceed with the extra work:

I removed all of the damaged furring strips and replaced them with new and installed 5/8″ exterior gypsum drywall soffit board with my handy dandy drywall lift with a 16′ extension.

Next, I finished the new drywall seams with fiberglass mesh tape, two coats of 45 minute setting type compound and skim coated the entire ceiling with USG All Purpose joint compound.

The next day I came back and retextured the entire ceiling with a skip trowel texture that needed to match the other four patios with skip troweled ceilings of this exclusive 6,000 sq ft home.

Chalky and Faded Paint? Exterior House Painting Project in Melbourne, Fl

Getting the exterior of your home re-painted does more than just enhance your Melbourne FL home’s curb appeal.

It helps protect probably one of your most important investments “Your Home” from the harsh Florida climate. It all starts with the prep and carries throughout your entire exterior painting process. It can protect your biggest investment for years to come.

The good news is that You have found the perfect Melbourne FL painter to make your home look like new again for a fair price.

This House Painting Project Blog post is about an exterior repaint on a home and pool deck in the Coral Springs subdivision in the Suntree area of Melbourne FL.
We were contracted to seal and repaint all of the exterior surfaces of the home due to the fading and chalking of the paint from years of this Melbourne FL home being in the sun and elements of the harsh Florida climate.

The very first thing we did to start this exterior painting project was to dig out 4″ to 6″ around the perimeter.

Then we pressure washed all of the surfaces to be painted including the pool deck of this Melbourne FL home.

The next step is a very important one. Cover and protect plants, sidewalks, windows walkways, pavers and exterior lighting fixtures.

Then we applied a tinted multi-surface conditioner (due to chalkiness and also to assure good adhesion of the finish coat) to all of the surfaces of the home to be painted.

We then repaired all of the staircase stucco cracks and recaulked all of the windows a trim.

Next we applied two colors and two coats of Sherwin Williams A-100® exterior latex 100% acrylic satin house and trim paint to the stucco walls, stucco bands, columns, soffits, fascia, gutters, all exterior doors and wood trim. We also spray painted the garage doors for a new factory finish look.

After all of the house painting was completed it was time start the pool deck repairs and lanai and pool deck painting.

We first started by repairing all of the settling cracks on the pool deck.

Next we applied two coats of Richards- Deck Guard 100% acrylic pool, patio and deck coating to the lanai and pool deck.

Once all of the painting was completed we backfilled around the perimeter the home and did one last walk through with homeowners to make sure they were completely satisfied.

Popcorn Removal in Palm Bay, Fl | Skip Trowel Texture

The Job:
On this popcorn removal project. We removed the dated popcorn texture from the living room, kitchen, dining room and foyer ceilings of a home in Palm Bay/Melbourne, Florida.

First task is to cover and protect everything in these rooms with plastic. Including the walls. Next,we  removed all of the outdated and yellowed popcorn ceiling texture.
Once the popcorn texture is removed, we repaired several failing and cracked tape joints and filled any holes on the now exposed drywall ceiling.
After the repairs were competed, we applied a skip trowel hand texture to ceilings.
Next, we primed newly skip troweled ceilings with an oil base stain blocking primer to insure good adheshion and beautiful bright white ceilings after the finsh coat of paint has been applied. Lastly we painted the skip troweled ceilings with two coats of Sherwin Williams Pro-Mar 200 semi-gloss paint.

Here’s a youtube video of this popcorn removal project:

In this Video Playlist I have videos of how to mix skip trowel texture, applying skip trowel texturing tips and tricks and even some project videos where I’m wearing a GoPro video camera to get a very unique perspective of the skip troweling process.


What the homeowners had to say about their new skip troweled ceilings:

Choose Peck Drywall and Painting…you will be delighted!
Paul and his team are highly professional and capable. He created a skip trowel ceiling for us that can honestly be described as a work of art! No more popcorn ceiling and we’re very happy with the result.
