If you are planning a renovation or remodel of an existing home, please be sure that all of the asbestos suspect materials that will be disturbed have been tested prior to beginning this process with your selected General Contractor. The testing of materials to be disturbed are required by the Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment. As the market in Colorado has increased the number of home-buyers who would like to improve or remodel to a more modern or personalized look and feel of thier home, so have the number of consumers who have paid far too much for environmental clean-up fees for improper removal and handling. In most cases your asbestos contractor scope of work is minimal in comparison to the over-all project scope such as with a kitchen re-design, bath remodel, master bedroom or office improvement, or textures through-out the home. As well as minimal in comparison to the over-all expense of your project. We have seen far too many home owners, residential developers, and remodel contractors who have approached an asbestos project from the back-end which generally means a potentially costly "clean-up". Pre-planning the asbestos portion of your project will save you time, money, and is far more environmentally and community friendly. We recommend the services of:
