"Hey, Colin.  As is often the case in Indianapolis, it's a very small world.  After meeting you at Ryan's house earlier this evening and returning home, several e-mails arrived in my Inbox announcing new members of Warfleigh.net.…"

"Thanks for the reassurance, Donna.  Still, I think we're going to hold off and gradually work up our nerve to tackle this with even the minimal risk -- this contractor is good at lots of things, and we think for now we'd rather have…"

"My understanding with asbestos is that if you work in a factory that has it floating visibly in the air for full-day shifts for several weeks, your risk of lung damage/cancer is *very* high.  But one day of exposure to some dust is a minimal…"

"Thanks, guys, for your responses. I actually ended up taking samples from behind the wall tile and the floor tile and mailing them to Western Analytical for testing. (Thanks, Ryan, for info on a closer lab!) The floor tile came back clean, but the…"

"Did the guy at Lowes mean ceramic tile or the multi-colored linoleum/rubber tiles popular in '50s rec rooms floors? I've remodeled many bathrooms and have *never* heard of concerns about asbestos in ceramic tile.  On the other hand,…"

"I remodeled a bathroom in my 1930's house with a nasty pink shower tile.  I believe the tile was from the 80's though and I wasn't concerned about asbestos with it.  I used a pry bar and hammer to remove it, and I broke very…"

Asbestos issues for older-home bathroom remodel?

Hi all,Hoping someone has experience or wisdom to share, because as you'd guess the Google searches on this topic are equal parts scary and inconclusive. We were looking into having our full bath remodeled, with the square peach/pink tiles taken off the walls and the little tiny tiles taken off the floor of our 1950-built house. Our contractor determined that he'd need to jackhammer the old tile out, both off the floors and walls, since there's apparently cement behind there.

Hey, Colin.  As is often the case in Indianapolis, it's a very small world.  After meeting you at Ryan's house earlier this evening and returning home, several e-mails arrived in my Inbox announcing new members of Warfleigh.net.  I was tooling around the site and discovered that you are a Warfleigh resident.  I then searched a few public records online and discovered that you live in Kevin Strunk's former home.  Mike and I lived in three homes in Warfleigh (on Park Avenue, on Central Avenue, and just around the corner from you on W. 61st).  In addition, my family's real estate company was for many years in Warfleigh (on College Avenue).  I enjoyed our conversation on the Noels' porch.  Hope to run into you again, sometime.  ~ Sharon

Good Day,

How is everything with you, I picked interest on you after going through your short profile and deemed it necessary to write you immediately. I have something very vital to disclose to you, but I found it difficult to express myself here, since it's a public site.Could you please get back to me on ( katekwame1@yahoo.com ) for the full details.
Have a nice day
Thanks God bless.


Kate Kwame.
