Forensic Expert Investigating Chinese Drywall Issue

Some physical evidence of a problem includes failure of HVAC units or electrical appliances, copper coils turning black, corroded electrical wiring, tarnished silver jewelry or silver-plated utensils, light bulbs burning out at a faster rate or the smell of rotten eggs.
