Worried about asbestos in your old home? Many buildings and houses in Upperville, VA, have asbestos shingles, siding, insulation, and tiles. For decades, asbestos was considered an excellent component in a variety of construction products. That’s why so many older structures are now dealing with the effects of decaying asbestos materials.
Envirotex is a licensed, asbestos inspection and abatement contractor. We offer:
Asbestos has been outlawed since 1989 by the Environmental Protection Agency. As scientists realized how dangerous it was, use decreased dramatically in the 1960s and 1970s.
That means that if your home has asbestos shingles in Upperville, VA, they are old. And like all old building materials, they gradually deteriorate, crack and fall apart.
That’s when people are at risk. As they decay, the shingles release fibrous dust into the air. People inhale it, and it settles in the lungs and other parts of the body. It often takes years, but eventually, this leads to major health problems like cancer, heart disease, and lung problems.
If the shingles on your home are in good shape, you don’t need to worry. When you see signs of cracking, peeling and general wear and tear, then you need to worry. Even if you can’t see the dust, it’s there and being released.
And if you own commercial property, be aware that it is a legal requirement that you get rid of the asbestos shingles and other products if they have become a hazard or if the asbestos is exposed.
Asbestos shingle removal in Upperville, VA, is definitely not a job for the do-it-yourselfer. The work needs to be done by an authorized contractor using technicians certified to the standards set by the EPA. They use protective clothing and special tools and equipment to pinpoint the asbestos and remove it completely.
If the job is done improperly, it can actually create more of a health hazard for you and your family by releasing more asbestos dust into the environment. Inexperienced workers also don’t know how to effectively deal with one of the biggest problems of asbestos removal—safe disposal. It must be done in an authorized disposal site, which can be costly and difficult to locate.

They have the training, certification, and experience to get the job done safely and thoroughly. They do containment, removal, decontamination, disposal, and testing.

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.
I used Envirotex at one of my largest client properties, and was thoroughly pleased with their performance. Their service was prompt, and their analysis comprehensive. Follow up and responsiveness were also great. The president of the company personally addressed our questions. I would not hesitate to use Envirotex again.
Thanks for your help, Daniel. Your intervention was much needed and appreciated. I will let Brock approve these as he sees fit, as you guys hammered out the agreement and scope. But I did not want the opportunity to go by and not show my appreciation. You always take care of us and you are great at rolling with the punches. Carry on, Christian soldier!
