Lumber Liquidators and Your Questions

In recent years, the housing industry has seen numerous problems with building products, including fire-retardant treated plywood, polybutelene pipe, certain types of siding, and Chinese drywall, to name a few.

Each case is different, but the experience we gain from each can provide guidance for future problems.

Most recently, builders and remodelers have had many questions about flooring purchased from Lumber Liquidators after a segment on 60 Minutes, the television news magazine, reported that high levels of formaldehyde were found in tested samples of the company’s laminate product. Lumber Liquidators has contested the results of the testing, calling them“false attacks on all fronts.”

NAHB has produced helpful resources for remodelers and builders that include background on the allegations, associated lawsuits, and tips for successful interactions with your buyers worried about whether the issues may affect them. You must sign in to with your password to access this information.
