Parkland launches Chinese drywall survey

Officials are trying to attach some facts to the perception there’s a Chinese drywall crisis in the city.

Parkland City Hall has posted a survey on the city’s Web site asking residents with homes built with the drywall for information: What kind of response did they get from their insurance company? How about the builder and lender? Do they plan to move?

“We’re trying to create a database so we can have detailed information,” said Mayor Michael Udine. “We’re still fact-finding, gathering as much information as possible.”

An estimated 300 homes in Parkland have the drywall.

Tainted drywall can produce sulfur-like odors and copper corrosion. Residents have also complained of health problems.

To take the survey, visit www.cityofparkland.org.
