Substandard Drywall

Effective Monday, April 20, 2009

Charlotte County Building Construction Services has had an increase in questions surrounding substandard drywall or “Chinese Drywall”. As a result, we have developed a permit and process to handle these scenarios.
  1. Contractor/Owner removes all drywall and insulation and assesses extent of damage.
  2. Contractor/Owner applies for a “Substandard Drywall” permit. Application for permit shall have a floor plan of the building detailing the extent of repair work needed to include (building, mechanical, electrical, plumbing etc). Permit will be issued with a quick review at a fee of $200.
  3. Contractor/Owner should make the required repairs using the appropriate subcontractors as needed and prior to replacing the drywall, call for all rough inspections.
  4. Upon completion of rough inspections, Contractor/Owner may replace insulation.
  5. Contractor/Owner will then call for a wall insulation inspection. Upon approval of the insulation inspection, they should then replace the drywall.
  6. Complete repairs and call for all final inspections.
  7. Upon approval of final inspections, a Certificate of Completion will be issued for the property stating that the repairs were made appropriately.
  1. Any additional work performed in conjunction with this permit may require further plans review and/or plans changes and inspections.
