Asbestos is a known carcinogen that was used to many products including vinyl tile, asphalt tile
, sheet flooring and adhesives made until 1980.
The work includes, but is not limited to: layout, landscaping, irrigation, fencing, concrete foundations, exterior pavers, concrete slabs on grade, unit masonry, termite treatment, pre-engineered roof and floor trusses, asphalt tile
, modified bitumen, insulation, doors, windows, hardware, stucco, drywall, architectural woodwork, cabinets, lay-in ceilings, painting, ceramic and resilient tile, carpeting, residential appliances, built-in boards, fireplaces, signage, toilet accessories, lockers, postal equipment, operable partitions, flagpoles, interior and exterior fountains, commercial kitchen equipment, window treatments, elevators, plumbing, HVAC, sprinkler systems, mechanical and electrical work, emergency generator and lightening protection.
The restrained treatment of the interior, where the architects use materials that one associates with the exterior, namely asphalt tile
flooring and exposed concrete, makes it feel surprisingly spacious.
Demolition of contaminated components, floor coverings 110m2 PAK loaded asphalt tiles
, suspended ceilings 1 050m2 KMF charged, toilet partitions asbestos impacted about 10 yds.
Whole sides of streets have houses boarded up -- gratified, broken windows, roofs started to bend and cave, asphalt tiles
curling and lifting, gutters falling, cars left half junked.
I could have chosen the much more expensive remedy of replacing the black asphalt tiles
with new solar-reflective ones, instead I chose an elastomeric coating that is highly reflective, durable, easy to apply, less expensive, and available at home improvement stores.
