Could a concrete/cement patio installed ’08 have asbestos in it? We want it remvd to put in a pool.?
Thinking of buying a house (we need to respond quickly) in Florida built in ’02, but 15×20 cement/concrete patio installed in ’08. We want that ripped out to install an inground pool. Could the patio contain asbestos? I’ve heard concrete products can have it. Thx.
Most people think asbestos has been banned – I thought that too and learned more awhile back. Sadly, it’s only banned for public/commercial buildings like schools and a very few products as well as NEW uses (things it wasn’t already being used in). It’s actually still legal in United States to manufacture it, import it, and have it in many products. 🙁
