If you plan a major renovation, the risks may become even greater of finding asbestos. We strongly recommend that inspections be performed to determine whether asbestos is present in construction material, and that asbestos management and removal be done by professionals.
If you own a home in Toronto that was built between the late 1920’s to the late 1970’s, then you might have good reason to be concerned about potential health effects of asbestos. Asbestos was a very attractive mineral due to its inexpensiveness, availability, and high heat resistance properties. Common materials that may have contained asbestos are concrete, asphalt, vinyl, ceramics, various compounds, adhesives and so on.
Typically in the older areas of Toronto & GTA, asbestos is commonly found in the following areas:
- Vermiculite Insulation
- Plaster & Drywall Compound
- 9 X 9 Vinyl Tiles
- Pipe Wrap
- Duct Wrap
- Register vents

- Familiarise yourself with the building design
- Obtain whatever information that is available to you regarding the building maintenance and renovation
- If possible, investigate whether or not asbestos was present in the construction materials used
- If the above information is unavailable, assume the construction materials may contain asbestos
- Invite a certified environmentalist examine the building
- If asbestos is found;
