I live in an older home built in 1931 and heated by a boiler. At that time it was common practice to insulate the basement distribution pipes with asbestos wrap encased in asbestos plaster. Given the high probably of age related deterioration of this existing asbestos material, it was decided to have the approximately 20 lineal feet of asbestos material removed.
A few years earlier, my neighbour retained the services of Templar to remove asbestos from his home and had no issues so I decided to go with Templar as well.
Robert expressed knowledge and confidence in the undertaking. Based on the geometry of my basement and the location of the asbestos, Robert provided a quote based on the erection of three isolated work areas, one encapsulating approximately 10 lineal feet of asbestos, the other two, encapsulating about five lineal feet each. Negative pressure was applied using a hepa vacuum to each isolated work area.
Robert's crew was courteous and professional. Robert was able to ease my concerns given that a close relative had died from work related mesothelioma.
In addition, I understood the scope of work to include the removal of an entire 4 ft. x 8 ft. ceiling panel as opposed to a portion of it, in order to facilitate asbestos removal. When brought to Robert's attention, he arranged to send his crew back to make things good, as he put it and not to worry about the invoice until the work is completed - a rare quality to see in contractors these days.
In summary, it was a pleasure to work with Robert and his crew and resolve a misunderstanding professionally and amicably.
Thank you Robert.
