Before you remodel, demo, or renovate a building built before 1981, testing building materials for the presence of asbestos will safe you time, money, and a lot of hassle later.
There are a lot of new rules now like if a bearing wall is removed in a building built after 1981 you need asbestos testing. Testing for PCBs is sometimes also required.
I you are buying a property, we can perform an asbestos inspection and identify probable asbestos containing building materials before your buy. To confirm the presence of asbestos we need to take a small sample of the material. This means a chip in the tile floor, etc. That’s why having a professional identify the probable building materials that may contain asbestos will assist you in making a reasonable bid for the property.
