Before You Remodel, Renovate or Conduct A Demolition
Have a home built before 1978? Stop! Whether you are preparing for a remodel, a renovation, or to have demolition on a property performed, you may need to have the proper tests conducted to be compliant with state and local laws.
Your home may contain toxic lead paint (lead paint was banned for residential use in 1978). Although undisturbed lead paint poses no safety hazard, disrupting the toxic substance could cause all sorts of health problems, especially in children, the elderly and pets.
And, improper demolition or renovation can not only cost you thousands more in unnecessary repairs, it can also send a host of toxins into parts of your home that were not affected, including mold spores, lead dust, and asbestos. Your health could be at serious risk.
An independent environmental inspection from RTK will pinpoint exactly what needs to be removed, what’s salvageable, and which environmental hazards are present.
We provide consulting for, and supervision of, remediation and abatement work, and re-sampling to ensure work has been completed properly.
