Anyone have information on asbestos being used in ceiling tiles? The tiles in question are about 12" square and stapled to furring strips — very common in my area. I’m sure everyone has seen them.
The home in question is 80-100 yrs old. The kitchen (where the ceiling is) does have the small (9") floor tiles that I do suspect contain asbestos and will be written up accordingly. If I had to guess, I would date the latest remodel to sometime in the 60’s. The ceiling in question is water damaged from a 2nd floor bath and will need to be removed. After discussing the floor tiles with my client , she asked about the possibility of asbestos in the ceiling tiles. In this case, I can tie the ceiling tiles into my remarks on the floor tiles.
I just don’t want to insert an asbestos disclaimer every time I run into these ceiling tiles just to be safe.
