Hamilton, VA, September 19, 2009 --(PR.com
)-- Virginia home owners worried about the health risks and damaging effects of Chinese drywall can find information on the website of Home Inspections of Northern Virginia, LLC, www.hiofnva.com.
Chinese drywall has the potential to be the largest material defect to impact the construction industry and home owners across the country. The drywall, used in homes built between 2004 and 2008, has been linked to numerous illnesses and health risks as well as significant damage to many systems in the home.
This drywall has recently been reported in Virginia. In response to a growing demand for a professional testing and inspection service aimed at detecting Chinese Drywall, Home Inspections of Northern Virginia, LLC now offers a comprehensive inspection and testing service.
“My clients were increasingly aware and concerned that their homes were built with defective Chinese drywall,” says owner Joseph Weissglass. “Many had experienced chronic health issues and were concerned that they were putting their families at risk. The only way to ensure that a home is safe and free of defective Chinese drywall is to professionally gather samples and have them analyzed in a laboratory.”
In less than one month, Weissglass has scheduled inspections throughout Northern Virginia. “Nearly half a dozen samples have come back positive for Chinese drywall,” Weissglass says.
Where are these homes that have tested positive for Chinese drywall? When were they built? Who built them? Citing privacy and the litigious nature of this issue, Weissglass declined to give details surrounding the homes that have tested positive.
As one of the only professionals in the area offering this service, Weissglass was able to secure bulk discounts with his laboratory. This results in an average cost to test a home for Chinese drywall of just $400. “At that price,” Weissglass explains, “anyone can afford to test their home for this toxic material, even if they don’t have a reason to believe that their home is impacted specifically.”
Home Inspections of Northern Virginia, LLC is currently offering Chinese drywall testing in the following areas: Loudoun, Fairfax, Arlington, Frederick, Fauquier and Prince William as well as Alexandria, Fairfax City, Manassas City, Manassas Park, Winchester City and more.
