Residential Exposure | Renovations

 

Many of our clients were exposed to asbestos, not at work but in their own home. There is a large range of asbestos products that were sold and marketed for residential homes. Asbestos is very common in houses built in Canada before the 1990s. Even if you did not perform the renovations yourself you may be eligible for compensation.

Common household asbestos products have been sold for many years include:

  • Floor Tiles

  • Drywall Products

  • Joint Compound/Cement

  • Insulation

  • Wiring

  • Asbestos Paper

  • Ceiling Tiles

  • Attic Insulation

  • Cement products

  • Sprayed Fireproofing and Thermal Insulation

  • Corrugated Sheeting

  • Cement Pipes

  • Many more!

In order to receive compensation, we need to figure out which asbestos products you were exposed to. If you have been exposed to asbestos during renovations, we can help you figure out the specific products that were sold for home-use during the years you performed the renovations. We have had hundreds of clients that have been exposed through home renovations. We have built a database of residential asbestos products that were sold in different provinces, from the 1940s to 1990s.
