For flooring services specialists, asbestos encapsulation is one of the most cost-effective and safe ways to deal with asbestos surfaces. If you own an older residential home or commercial building, chances are some parts of the flooring and insulation contain asbestos. As you may know, this is a very dangerous substance for your health.

The standard procedure for removing asbestos, abatement, is quite expensive, especially if you have a large surface to deal with. Asbestos encapsulation cost is lower and the procedure itself is just as safe as abatement. It consists of applying a coating of epoxy sealant that effectively immobilizes the asbestos fibers and prevents them from becoming airborne.

When Is Asbestos Encapsulation Recommended?

Applying an asbestos encapsulation coating is recommended if the surface containing asbestos is not damaged or crumbling. If the tiles or insulating layer is in an advanced state of deterioration, applying asbestos encapsulation may actually make the asbestos fibers loose and release them into the atmosphere. A specialist in asbestos encapsulation methods will inspect your property and give you the best advice for your safety.

On the other hand, if the asbestos containing material is in good condition, you do not need to consider removing it. It is a complex and expensive operation and also subject to strict controls. Asbestos encapsulation cost is manageable for any property owner and the procedure itself is quite simple and risk-free.

Should You Consider DIY Alternatives?

A few residential and commercial property owners are considering the DIY approach to deal with asbestos. They are considering applying foam or a coating of paint to cover the surface and “fix” the issue. In reality, both materials are subject to flaking, which actually increases asbestos deterioration.

By contrast, asbestos encapsulation uses epoxy, an airtight material that surrounds the asbestos fibers and does not allow them to become loose. Plus, epoxy will make your floor level and allow you to install carpeting or a floating floor on top of it.

Love our quartz epoxy floor. Now my wife is constantly on me to keep the garage clean, which is very easy to do these days. Great product, hassle free installation.
Jim
Before the installation of our epoxy flooring in our garage our garage was an unsightly mess. We called upon Dragon Scale Flooring for help, they installed a 100% solids epoxy with decorative Quartz and made our garage beautiful. Not only was the flooring beautiful but the individuals that did the installation were professional, neat, paid attention to detail , they helped us choose the best color for our needs and followed up after the installation to make sure we were happy with the job. I can’t say enough about the wonderful experience I had dealing with Dragon Scale Flooring, I would recommend them without hesitation.

I’m glad I went with you. My floor looks great and I enjoyed being in my garage last winter building my Harley-Davidson Road King.

My name is Keith. I have started a position as facilities manager and will assume the directors role at the National Aviary in Pittsburgh Pa. Your company installed an epoxy coat floor in our commissary area in recent history and we are pleased with outcome. We would like budget pricing on another area in the facility.

David
Your guys were terrific. Really know their stuff! Very informative and helpful with tips to keep this floor looking Great! Thanks again for the follow up on this and the reasonable pricing for the re-coat!
Dennis
I wanted to follow up after the completion of our basement floor to let you know how pleased we are with the outcome. Both of you were extremely helpful in every aspect of planning and prepping for your installation. Chris and Bob were great to have onsite and were absolutely focused on completing our project on time. They made one crappy looking floor into an outstanding foundation for our remodel. I walked on it this morning for the first time and I couldn’t be happier with the result. My wife Veronica was amazed with the look and quality. Please do not hesitate to use us as a reference anytime in the future.
