SUGGESTED LANGUAGE FOR USE IN BUILDER COMMUNICATION WITH HOMEOWNERS

 

Dear Homeowner:

We have recently been informed of a potential issue with the TJI® Joists with Flak Jacket® protection manufactured after Dec. 1, 2016, that may be installed in your home’s basement. Some homeowners have complained of odor or irritation that may be coming from the coating used on these joists.

                                             

Weyerhaeuser, the manufacturer of the product, has identified a solution to resolve this issue. This process will involve applying an additional top coat to the affected joists. In most cases, once remediation begins in your home it will take less than a week to apply the coat and ventilate the basement.

We will be working with Weyerhaeuser to verify whether this product is in your home, and if so, to establish a remediation schedule. We will let you know as soon as possible when the situation will be resolved in your home. 

In the meantime, out of an abundance of caution, we recommend that you refrain from using your basement until the remediation is complete because the coating on the joists may be emitting formaldehyde. If you are experiencing an odor or irritation, we recommend that you temporarily vacate your home until the remediation is complete. Weyerhaeuser will arrange and fully cover the cost of temporary housing for you. To initiate the temporary housing process, you can call 844-294-4127 (toll free) or send an email to This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it..

We apologize for the inconvenience this causes you, and want you to know that we are doing everything we can to resolve this issue quickly and to make the process as easy for you as possible. 

[insert any other desired builder contact info / etc]

Sincerely,

Builder Name
