Asbestos is a heat-resistant mineral and was widely used in the 20th century to insulate buildings such as homes and offices. If asbestos is already in your building and is secure and enclosed, there is no problem. However, if you’re considering renovations, demolition or other projects in a building built before 1990, you should contact O’Reilly Brothers for advice.


Asbestos was once common in insulation materials, especially in attics and walls. Asbestos particles pose significant health risks for those who live and work in places where asbestos fibres were disturbed. Some vermiculite insulation may also contain asbestos. Asbestos fibres, when disturbed, can spread in the air. We have the experience and the necessary equipment. At O’Reilly Brothers, we assess every situation, and provide abatement if necessary. Get in touch with us and book your free consultation.


What Is Asbestos?

Asbestos is part of a group of naturally occurring materials that were widely used in the construction of properties till the late 80s. Asbestos is resistant to fire and heat and highly durable, which made it extremely popular. It's highly versatile, which is why it was used in the construction of various parts of commercial and residential properties, such as insulation, flooring and drywall. If you occupy an older property, it is imperative that you get it tested for asbestos.


Asbestos and Your Health

Asbestos fibres are seriously damaging to your health. When asbestos is disturbed in processes such as demolition, it releases fibres that can have severe consequences for your health. Both long-term and short-term exposure to asbestos fibres can cause irreversible illnesses, and some might even show their symptoms after several years.


No one can determine whether a material contains asbestos just by looking at it. You cannot identify asbestos by smelling it either. Asbestos has no taste or smell.


Learn More About the Process

If you are planning to renovate an old structure, you may want to schedule an asbestos testing. The following reasons explain why you should let our professionals help you with asbestos removal:


• HARMS YOUR HEALTH - Fibres from this material are extremely harmful. Exposure to this substance can lead to a number of serious health conditions (asbestosis, mesothelioma, and lung cancer).


• WIDELY PRESENT - Many commercial and residential buildings contain massive amounts of asbestos. Both expertise and experience are needed to handle hazardous materials on that scale.


Asbestos Awareness

If you work in construction or a similar industry, you may encounter asbestos occasionally. Before you call us for asbestos removal, learn more about the places where it can be found:

  • Roofing shingles
  • Siding
  • Soundproofing tiles
  • Walls and ceilings
  • Attic insulation
  • Hot water piping or boilers
  • Furnace ducts
  • Furnace rooms and door gaskets

Before completing tasks around any of these areas, call us for inspection and/or abatement.

The Abatement Process

If you suspect the presence of asbestos in your building, contact O’Reilly Brothers, a licensed abatement provider. Our procedure includes:

  • Area enclosure
  • Encapsulation
  • Complete removal

To learn more about the process, talk to our team of professionals or write to us.

Replacement Insulation

Asbestos insulation was a big source of asbestos exposure for workers in the 20th century. Many buildings once used asbestos-based insulation, mostly because of asbestos’ flame-retardant properties. So, after we remove asbestos-based insulation from your site, O’Reilly Brothers will help you choose appropriate replacement insulation.


We offer a variety of certified flame-retardant products, including polyurethane-based insulation. This product is UFFI-free and safe to use.



An asbestos inventory is a document that gives information about construction materials that may contain asbestos in a building. This document is required when you apply for a demolition permit.



Asbestos insulation removal should be performed by certified professionals because there is a risk of getting exposed to airborne asbestos. You can count on the professionals of O'Reilly Brothers to carry out the asbestos removal procedure with extreme caution, following all the government guidelines.


For more info about asbestos and its removal, consult our FAQ page and the website of the Government of Canada.
