Carelessness led to Florida's problems with defective Chinese drywall. It will take detail-oriented contractors like Eric Stockland to fix those problems.

Stockland is the owner of Charter Bay Homes in Tampa Bay, Florida and during the recent lull in new construction he stopped building and started remediating homes containing defective Chinese drywall. The drywall emits elevated levels of hydrogen sulfide and other materials that corrode pipes and wiring and may pose a health threat to the occupants of the home.
