A new roof was put on and I’ve been sick ever since
We had a new roof put on our house and within 24 hrs I started getting sick. My nervous system is whacked out, can’t sleep, intense headaches etc.
I’ve been staying at my daughters house to get away from the chemicals. My husband and son are still staying in the house and don’t seem to be bothered by it. We’ve been using an ozone machine and filled numerous boxes with charcoal and baking soda throughout the house.
Does anyone have any other ideas for getting rid of the chemicals? And, what chemicals are being emitted into the house? My husband can’t understand how the chemicals can possibly come through the insulation, drywall etc into the house.
Help please! I want to be able to get back into my house as soon as possible. It’s been almost 2 months since we had the roof put on. Does anyone know how long these materials can outgas?
Thank you for your help.
