Asbestos and Green Alternatives

Located in the Midwestern part of the United States, Ohio is known as the “Buckeye” state for its high prevalence of Buckeye trees and hosting Ohio State University. In the Ohio real estate market, there are many things to consider. The path to owning a home is a rewarding accomplishment that will require many new responsibilities. Having the assistance of a reliable and experience real estate agent can make all the difference. Homes that are newly purchased may require additional remodeling or repairs. Many things can go unnoticed, such as obsolete building materials that may be present. Highly regarded throughout the 20th century, asbestos was the ideal building material for many industries. Often appearing in roof shingles, popcorn ceilings, piping and insulation, asbestos became one of the most popular building applications of the 20th century. Potential Ohio homebuyers should be aware homes built prior to 1980 may still contain asbestos. However, don’t jump out of your chair! Exposure to asbestos is easily avoidable by taking simple precautions. Green sustainable methods of insulation are now available and provide a healthy and efficient substitute for asbestos. Building green with proper insulation will save you on bills. For example, the use of cotton fiber foam, lcynene and cellulose has demonstrated to reduce energy costs by 25 % per year. As education and technology of green sustainable practices increase, the numbers will continue to rise. There is no need for any products used in construction to be made from asbestos; yet over 3,000 work and home-based materials still contain this toxin.
