A new report shows homes made with Chinese drywall have more chemicals than first thought.

Homeowners with imported drywall, have complained the fumes are destroying their property and making them sick.

Government officials are investigating those claims.

The report stopped short of linking those problems to the chemicals. Millions of pounds of cheap drywall were imported during the housing boom and after Hurricane Katrina.
