The best way to do this is to allow a professional asbestos removal team to do the work for you. They will wear the proper gear and will carefully bag up all construction materials that contain asbestos in a manner so it is not disturbed and sent airborne.

You Can Have Proof For Your Records

If you were to later decide to sell your home, you are obligated to inform all potential buyers of certain things about the house, such as previous problems with things such as mold, termites, and asbestos. It can be hard for some potential buyers to just take your word that you cleaned up all of the asbestos yourself without causing any of it to spread throughout the home. Therefore, if you have a professional asbestos removal company take care of the problem for you, you will have records from that for future buyers. Also, such records can help protect you in the event someone sues you over asbestos being in the home, as you can show that you did everything that you could have possibly done.

Pool House Parties: Building Your Backyard Escape

When I decided to turn my backyard into a pool and spa space, I wanted to have a pool house built. Adding a pool house would give me somewhere for everyone to shower and change without tracking pool water and dirt into the main house. I worked with a local contractor to construct a pool house with an outdoor kitchen, outdoor showers, and full indoor restroom facilities as well as a game room and changing rooms. I created this site to journal the process so that I could hopefully inspire others to do the same. I hope this site takes some of the mystery out of the construction process for you so you can build the backyard structure you've always wanted.
