Question DetailsAsked on 5/13/2015

Anyone know companies(Seattle area) who specialize in removing asbestos popcorn, do the drywall & paint?

Our home we found out via testing the popcorn ceiling has asbestos. Now we are looking for a company/contractor who can remove the asbestos popcorn, drywall and paint the ceilings. So far quotes JUST for removal of popcorn are $5K plus. In reading all the questions related to this, I seem to understand this is high. Don't know. Can you advise a company/contractor who does do all 3 w/in the project/quote? Thx for help.

Would probably take a Remodeling - General Contractor to wrap it all up in one contract - though you typically pay 10-30% extra for him to do that because most or all the job would be by subcontrctors anyway.

Note the asbestos does not have to be removed (though might lose a few potential buyers come resale time if it is not) - can be encapsulatd with an encapsulating spray, then either painted or retextured without removing or disturbing the popcorn at all. in some states just retexturing is enough, without the adhesive primer to "glue" and loose asbestos to the surface.
