Don it could also require ripping out the electrical. There is more to it than sheetrock and paint.

Here is my four part trulia blog on Chinese Drywall

I agree with the responses noted and thought you might want to see what a Vero Beach Florida person did about the drywall problem. See here http://www.bizjournals.com/southflorida/stories/2010/03/15/d…

A rule of thumb, considered somewhat accurate is to calculate replacement costs at about $85 per square foot. Hope that helps.

You will need to find a contractor in your area that does Defective Drywall Remediation. Try the Internet. Keep in mind that in addition to the drywall being replaced you ususally also have to have the appliances, electrical, plumbing, and HVAC replaced as well.

For an accurate picture of costs, consider contacting a few local licensed contractors and ask for free estimates...
