Asbestos is a dangerous material and can cause specific health problems (including lung cancer). If you live in a Front Royal, VA home built before 1980, your home may have asbestos shingles or siding.
Envirotex is a licensed, asbestos inspection and abatement contractor. We offer:
For years, asbestos was used inside and outside of homes. Asbestos siding and shingles were commonly used due to the heat and fire resistance asbestos provided. The material kept heat inside the house and helped prevent fires from spreading.
Asbestos causes problems when it's inhaled into the lungs. Asbestos insulation is usually considered the most dangerous to health because the asbestos fibers become stuck in the throat and lungs, leading to problems such as cancer. However, if you live and or work around asbestos siding for an extended period of time, you greatly increase your risk of asbestos-related diseases.
The only way to distinguish Front Royal, VA asbestos siding from non-asbestos siding is by closely examining the fibers under a specific microscope.
Fibers from asbestos siding generally only appear when the siding is altered in some way. Sawing the siding, cutting it or drilling holes in it can release the fibers and make it possible for you to inhale them. The best way to prevent this from occurring is by leaving the asbestos siding as it is.
If you are concerned that your Front Royal, VA home may have asbestos siding, please contact the experts at Envirotex Environmental Services for an asbestos inspection. Envirotex can take samples safely, and send them off to an independent lab for determination. If your Front Royal, VA home does have asbestos siding, Envirotex can assist you and your contractors with safely removing and disposing of the asbestos siding from your Front Royal, VA home. Have questions or concerns about asbestos siding? Please call Envirotex Environmental Services today at (703)928-7892.

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!
The attic looks great. Again, thank you for your rapid response, great job and going the extra mile.
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.
