News and Updates
In response to the statement issued by Weyerhaeuser regarding affected floor joists, Broomfield staff is currently working with area builders to identify Broomfield homes which have a Weyerhaeuser floor joist manufactured between December 2016 and July 1, 2017.
A majority of those affected homes are new construction and are unoccupied. Occupied homes with this floor joist have been contacted by their home builders. Broomfield will continue to work with area home builders to ensure that all affected residents are contacted by their home builder. Homeowners should contact their home builder or Weyerhaeuser for questions or to discuss remediation.
Will Broomfield Inspectors be performing testing to determine if the joists include the formaldehyde-based resin?
No. Homeowners should contact their home builder or a third party inspector to pursue testing.
Where can I find out more about the Weyerhaeuser floor joists?
Will you release the names and addresses of the affected homes?
No. Homeowners were contacted directly by the home builders.
Reminder to all Builders!!

The updated codes will be required to be followed on permits based on the issuance date and not the application date.
