Professional remediation services with a personal touch.

Hearing the words “You have Chinese drywall” has to rank up there as one of the worst news a homeowner can receive. The financial impact can be devastating and the potential health-related issues are disconcerting. To top it off, there are unethical scammers preying on victims of Chinese Drywall.

At Charter Bay, we have been performing Chinese drywall remediations for nearly 8 years, and are regarded as one of the most knowledgable and conscientious remediation contractors in Tampa Bay. We have a long list of satisfied clients whose homes we have remediated over the last several years. Should you be interested using Charter Bay to remediate your home, we would more than happy to provide you with a list of references you may call.

We are a Florida state licensed Certified Building Contractor (CBC1255041). Collectively, our team has more than 40 years of construction experience in the Tampa Bay area.

We follow published recommendations by the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC), the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), the Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD), the Florida Division of Environmental Health (FDEH), and U.S. District Judge Eldon Fallon. When there is a difference of opinion between the above entities, we strongly recommend using the more stringent remediation guidelines as outlined by Judge Fallon.

Although we cannot take away the difficult financial and emotional toll owning a home with Chinese drywall causes, we can remove every trace of the contaminated drywall.

We don’t return homes to their original condition, we rebuild them better than they ever were. At Charter Bay, we do not offer sprays, fogging, sealing, or any other quick-fix gimmicks as “solutions” to your Chinese drywall problem. The only way to solve the problem is to remove every trace of the drywall and all affected components, and start over.

We have been featured in both Builder Online Magazine and JLC (Journal of Light Construction) for our Chinese Drywall Remediation work.

Knauf Chinese Drywall Settlement

We are an approved Option 2 remediation contractor for Knauf Settlement Cases.

Learning you have Chinese drywall is devastating, but if you discover that your Chinese drywall is from Knauf, there may be a glimmer of hope in an otherwise very difficult situation.  We are an approved Option 2 remediation contractor and have worked on numerous homes that were a part of the Knauf Settlement Agreement. We are very familiar with all aspects of the Knauf Settlement and can help homeowners navigate the complicated, and times frustrating, process of receiving  settlement payments to rebuild your home.

Information For Homeowners

In addition to providing Chinese Drywall Remediation Services throughout Tampa Bay, we also try to keep you up to date on any relevant news or information via our Chinese Drywall blog page, Facebook and Twitter. We also have a collection of photos on Flickr you may find helpful. The photos were taken during a couple of our remediation projects and help illustrate the process of having a home remediated.

In addition to our blog and social media accounts, we’ve created a video series on YouTube intended to help homeowners who have Chinese drywall. The series addresses the steps involved to remediate a Chinese drywall home, and includes each of the stages of a remediation project, including home preparation, salvage, evidence documentation and preservation (EPO), demolition and remediation (cleaning), off-gassing, and finally, rebuilding. Our hope is that these videos will give homeowners the necessary information they need so that they can make an informed decision on how to remediate their home.

Our video series has even been featured in Builder Magazine. Ted Cushman wrote an article featuring our video series called: Those Who Can Do, Also Teach: Charter Bay’s Chinese Drywall Videos.  Be sure to visit our YouTube Channel to see the rest of the videos in our Chinese Drywall series.

We understand that the future success of any company depends entirely on happy clients making recommendations to others. With that understanding, there is nothing we won’t do to ensure that each homeowner is thrilled with the remediation and what started as a horrible experience turned into a positive one.

“Eric’s attention to detail and thorough knowledge of Chinese drywall problems helped us feel secure and confident that our problem would be fixed correctly. He worked very closely with our attorney to collect the proper drywall samples for future use in our legal actions. Many times Eric went above and beyond in suggesting improvements without increasing costs. He answered our questions thoroughly and very considerately. And every subcontractor on the job site was equally professional. Our home was completely gutted down to the studs and he rebuilt it to exactly how it looked before. And I’ve never seen a cleaner jobsite. Overall an amazing job! We could not be happier. And I’m sure you will not be disappointed.”

Taken from an email exchange between our client and her Chinese Drywall Attorney, Liz Szilagyi-Rigsby…

“I am just touching base with you to find out if you have seen your property since it has been remediated. The disc (Evidence Protection Package) I received from Eric is extremely impressive.  Are you pleased with his work?”

“Hi Liz, We have not been back to Florida; but our neighbor acted on our behalf and checked the house after it had been gutted and cleaned. Eric has been in contact several times a week sending videos and messages, and calling. To say that we are pleased with him and his work, is a huge understatement. We trust him implicitly. If your law firm ever needed any work done, or were representing other clients who needed a remediation, we would be most happy to give a recommendation.”

“Eric is the only one who I have interviewed that I would have do the remediation project as he has such an in-depth knowledge as well as the fact that he is extremely detail oriented. The remediation protocol is a big deal to follow as exactly as possible and I feel that he is the best one to do this type of remediation.”
