Hazardous Materials


Hazardous Building Materials

There is a duty placed on building owners to properly identify the presence of these designated substances prior to any demolition or renovations. Keltech's qualified professionals identify those hazardous materials and provide comprehensive report outlining the materials, associated risks and management whether it be a single family home or complex multi-building project.
