The economy is in better shape and confidence is returning. This can be seen in neighborhoods nationwide, and especially in Omaha, where more dumpsters are visible in front of homes as remodels are on the upswing once again. So yes, it’s a fantastic time to think about that sensational Omaha home remodel you’ve been dreaming about, including new roofing—as long as you think safety first.
Lead and asbestos and mold, oh my.
While remodels are always exciting, it’s important to protect your family and children first by hiring a qualified Omaha contractor and roofing expert. Why? Because only the best-trained technicians have the experience and equipment necessary to handle the dangerous materials that can sometimes be jarred loose during a remodel—especially in older homes. Examples may include:
There are numerous sources of lead in our environment. It doesn’t decompose or rot, so it stays in place for a long time. The major source of lead is from lead contaminated dust—most of which comes from old paint. It can also exist on walls, woodwork, siding, doors, windows and lead plumbing pipes. This poses a more serious risk for children than adults—a risk that you’ll eliminate when you choose the right Omaha residential remodeler who knows how to completely eradicate traces of lead or dust.
It’s always better to be safe than sorry. Assume that your home, if it’s older, contains asbestos in the walls and insulation. The only way to be perfectly certain, however, is to have it analyzed by specialists. The right Omaha remodeling team will bring this necessary skill to the job to keep you protected from hazards.
Moisture and housing materials, when combined, often create mold. This can become airborne and pose a respiratory threat. But again, in 2015, the right professionals are equipped to handle this in its entirety.
Safe is beautiful.
In the hands of top remodeling professionals, the results for your home will not only be outstanding, but more importantly, thorough. A good remodel goes beneath the surface and does the job correctly, right down to your Omaha home’s underlying infrastructure. When remodeled by experts, you can rest assured that every square foot of your home, including roofing, will look spectacular—and be even safer than it was before the remodel. And that’s a win-win for any homeowner.
