Asbestos was widely used in home and office construction between 1920 and the 1980’s. To give you some indication of how widely used it was, it is estimated that some 80% of the buildings constructed prior to 1981 contain some level of asbestos.
Envirotex is a licensed, asbestos inspection and abatement contractor. We offer:
It’s not hard to understand why it was so attractive. After all, it’s durable, long-lasting, has tremendous insulating properties and is extraordinarily fire resistant. Unfortunately, years later, it was also found to have not just dangerous properties, but lethal ones, which is why the EPA issued the Asbestos Ban and Phase Out Rule in 1989.
You’ve probably seen late-night infomercials talking about class-action mesothelioma lawsuits. That’s a particular debilitating form of cancer caused by asbestos exposure and only underscores the dangers that the material poses.
Since the EPA’s ban, businesses, government agencies, and individuals have been slowly having asbestos removed, but it’s not a simple process. While it doesn’t usually cause any problems if it’s left alone, disturbing it will inevitably release particles into the air that if inhaled can be quite dangerous. Even deadly.
Unfortunately, if you try to roof over the asbestos shingles on your Middleburg, VA home, they will almost certainly be disturbed, which is why you should definitely not try to remove them on your own.
Given the risks and dangers involved, the process requires expertise to handle safely. That’s where Envirotex comes in. Founded in 2000, we’ve quickly become the most respected environmental services company in the region, and our commitment to excellence is second only to our commitment to safety.
Where your family’s health and safety are concerned, it doesn’t pay to take any chances. Call Envirotex. We will come to your home and perform a test to confirm the presence of asbestos, then give you a free, no-obligation estimate before any work begins.
When you’re comfortable with everything, we can begin. We’ll remove the asbestos shingles from your Middleburg, VA home, safely and professionally, and you’ll have one less thing to worry about.
We do a lot more than simply remove asbestos shingles from Middleburg, VA buildings, however. As a full-service environmental safety company, we can handle mold remediation and safely remove a variety of other hazardous substances if they are found in and around your home or office.
Most people think of their home as their castle. Unfortunately, your castle may not be as safe and secure as you think it is. The presence of asbestos shingles on your Middleburg, VA home can be a ticking time bomb, and as such, should be removed as soon as feasible.
The good news is, you’ve got an ally in Envirotex. One call and your problem is well on the way to being solved. Schedule your appointment today. We’ll be there when you need us.

Envirotex truly came to our rescue. With the discovery of asbestos during our current renovation project, we were faced with the possibility of a considerable delay. Envirotex's prompt response, competitive pricing and flexibility to work off hours prevented any schedule slippage.
The job was to remove all the old rock-wool insulation and 60-years of dust, bird droppings, and dirt from the attic so that new fiber glass insulation could be installed. Dan's team of workers did a super job in cleaning the attic of all this stuff. I could find nothing remaining between the joist or in corners of the attic. It was so clean that you could have food served on the floor in the attic. They were on-time, completed the work as scheduled, and the work team was professional, organized, and experienced. Highly recommend Envirotex.
