Costs for asbestos removal

1 Reply

Hello! I'm hoping to jump on the house flipping wagon, thinking of putting in an offer on my first flip house! It's an old house, and most likely there's asbestos (ceiling tiles, floor tiles). What is a general cost for abatement? (Ontario, specifically Ottawa area would be great if you have experience and comps)

@Jessica Vanderveen I can't help you with abatement pricing - but I can say that usually it is much cheaper and easier to "encapsulate" rather than "abate". Essentially this means just putting a thin new Sheetrock over those ceiling tiles and a thin subfloor over those floor tiles. That is acceptable practice in the US - not sure about Canada.
