Fantastic. We found asbestos-containing material in the house and David of Amosite generously helped us through a challenging situation with no charge. We reimbursed him his cost of testing two samples. All of his consultation and assistance was pro bono. We hired a different company that was cutting corners, with an owner that was very confrontational and defensive about any questions being asked. And he was not going to provide the proper paperwork to prove the abatement was completed properly - which is required to protect the value of the house. Be very careful, that other company had 20 reviews with a very good rating. We wouldn’t have known what was missing if we hadn’t talked to someone who knew better. And what expert with decades of experience and busy with his company is going to spend time on the phone providing advice… for free? That’s what David did, and then dealt with the owner of the other company directly on our behalf to get the situation resolved.
I highly recommend giving Amosite a call. Regardless of who you decide to hire, talking to Amosite will be time well spent.
The situation arose after we had scheduled a company for the abatement. The owner was really good to deal with. But one of his crew members wasn’t feeling well (during the time that COVID distancing was becoming a high priority) so he wasn’t able to send the crew. With best intentions he recommended this smaller company who he’d dealt with before. We made a rush decision as we had a major project underway in the house and we had the floor torn up in about half of our house. That turned out to be a mistake. They left out several of the aspects of the job that were agreed upon and left pieces of asbestos containing material scattered around after the job was supposedly done. My husband dealt with the individual directly to clean up the obvious missed items, but then spent many hours in a P100 respirator and protective gear doing a thorough cleaning. (try finding a P100 mask in March of 2020). After seeing the lack of quality work, it came as little surprise that the owner wasn’t going to provide adequate paperwork. David offered to call that person and assist him in being able to provide the proper documents. Without David's help, I don't know how we would have resolved the situation.
If you have any asbestos questions or issues, or anything else in the realm of what Amosite does, give them a call.
Sincere thanks to David for being a big help to a family in a very stressful situation.
