Chinese drywall repairs proceed

March 16, 2009 10:34AM

Owners of homes in Lennar Corp.’s Woodfield development in Port St. Lucie have gotten letters saying they can move out temporarily as the developer tears out tainted drywall from China. Lennar will gut interior walls and replace the sulfurous paneling for free, though some residents remain concerned about the cost of potential health problems. Work to tear out tainted Chinese drywall has begun in a few townhomes in the Promenade portion of Port St. Lucie’s Tradition community.
