Asbestos is still found in building components in today's construction.  Yes, it is more likely to find asbestos in older buildings (pre-1985), but did you know building products bought today at the local hardware store or Home Depot can still contain asbestos.  The materials that generally contain  asbestos include but are not limited to:

  • Drywall and Joint compound
  • Linoleum flooring
  • Acoustic ceiling materials
  • Transite water and exhaust pipes
  • Exterior paneling
  • Stucco
  • Roofing and roofing mastics
  • Naturally Occurring Asbestos (NOA)

       If you or your clients plan to renovate, remodel or disturb these materials, you need to have them tested to determine the asbestos content.  This can be done only by a licensed/qualified professional.
