Test for Asbestos Before Renovating


Here in Colorado, we have very strict asbestos regulations to follow and home owners have no way of knowing what they are, or that they even exist!

If you are planning a renovation of any kind inside or outside your home that is going to disturb over 32 square feet,

1. You or your general contractor are required to have a certified asbestos building inspector collect, test and analyze all materials that will be disturbed.

2. If any of the materials analyzed are asbestos containing materials, you will need them removed by a licensed Asbestos abatement contractor (not a certified asbestos supervisor working out of his garage).

3. Ask for their insurance and check their licensing requirements

4. Never give them money without a signed contract. Do not pay in full until you have received the final air clearance report from the asbestos consulting firm.
