Many Asbestos materials were banned pre-1978 for use in residential homes. Purchasing a home built prior to 1978 is very common and should not deter you from buying the home you want. However, understanding how Asbestos Materials can affect you and taking the proper measures can go a long way
Ironically, Asbestos materials were very popular and had a number of uses including:
- Roof Shingles and Asphalt Paper
- Exterior Siding
- Attic and Wall Insulation
- Plumbing and HVAC Insulation
- Paint and Patching Compounds
- Flooring, etc.
Our inspectors are able to identify possible Asbestos Materials in your home. Combine that with Asbestos Testing or an Asbestos Assessment, we would be able to determine, conclusively, if Asbestos materials were used in your home.
