Asbestos Testing & Removal in Kilgore, TX

What Is Asbestos And How Is It defined?

According to Osha, asbestos is a group of "naturally occurring minerals that are resistant to heat and corrosion."

Since the 1800's, builders have used asbestos-containing materials. Older buildings built in the same eras as The Richest Acre and The Crim House in Kilgore must be tested for asbestos.

Although dangerous, asbestos is an excellent fire-resistant material and a highly effective insulator.

ERI Consulting has helped over 20,000 businesses like yours keep their employees and customers safe. We provide asbestos inspections to Kilgore and the surrounding areas.

What materials are common asbestos-containing materials?

Asbestos is found in a wide variety of building materials, including, but not limited to:

  • Cement
  • Ceiling tiles
  • Floor tiles
  • Insulation
  • Popcorn ceiling
  • Roof shingles
  • Sheetrock
  • And more

Do we need an asbestos survey in order to obtain a building or demolition permit?

Texas law requires all buildings to be inspected prior to a building permit, no matter the facility's age. Asbestos was made illegal for commercial use in Texas in 1978, so asbestos is much more common in older buildings.
