As a general rule, it's best to know that any Canadian homes built prior to 1990 will be likely to contain asbestos. Not surprisingly, this unassuming single-level family home was no exception. In this case, it was a form of vinyl flooring left lying beneath the exiting flooring in the main bathroom which was due for renovation. Compared against the overall project cost, professional asbestos abatement is relatively inexpensive, and should always be considered the only option when facing a contaminated structure.
Project Scope: Asbestos abatement and disposal, new diverter assembly install, tile shower surround installation, cast-iron tub install w/ new support base and skirt, subfloor installation, new tile flooring, new lavatory and updated fixtures.
