Asbestos

I spoke with David regarding asbestos removal in my home. I sent him pictures of the renovations and he was able to advise me.
David is very honest, knowledgeable and friendly.
I would recommend David to my friends. Thanks David for your honesty.

New Home Asbestos Worries

I called Amosite to discuss some concerns I had about my new home. Being a first time home buyer, I had some worries about asbestos after starting some renovations. David answered the phone and immediately put all of my worries at rest. He took his time to reassure me and helped me feel safe in my new home.
He gave me resources and information that were pertinent to our situation and the worries we had. He showed interest in my well-being and finances which I respect greatly.
Without David and Amosite, I would have spent a lot more money and had a lot more anxiety about the situation I was in.
I cannot thank David enough for his help and would 100% recommend Amosite to anyone I know.

Not happy/Not satisfied

Not happy with the service I received. They left the dirty towel on my bathtub and also dirty drippings on my toilet bowl. I had to throw out my expensive shower curtain because the asbestos towel was touching it. My shower matched the window curtain which is hard to find.
Some of my vents were not properly nailed back. Nails reused were bent and not properly secured while other were just left. I think when a company used a contractor to complete a job, the owner should visit the site to ensure the job was done properly.
Not happy with DAVID’s response when I called him after he told me to call him any time with any issues.
I couldn’t believe my ears. Homestars won’t allow me to write his exact response.
I no longer trust positive reviews. I hired this company based on positive reviews.

Company Response

Hi Cassey,

I am very sorry for the poor workmanship our company has provided to you .
I am trying to find you in our system because I find it very hard to believe we would do such poor quality work.
The reputation of the company is very important and it shows in the quality of work we have provided in the past 30 years.
I am never rude or impolite to any of the good customers out there.
We try to resolve all conflicts immediately.
I do not ever recall a conversation with you. A dirty towel spots on the toilet and destruction of the clients property is something we would address immediately.
Once again if we have done work for you I apologize from the bottom of my heart.
We have done thousands of jobs throughout Ontario this is the first time I've ever heard of something so despicable are you sure our company did the job ?

Wow!

Amosite receives excellent ratings on HomeStars and no wonder. Dave answered our call today promptly and cheerfully. He and Rudy went out of their way to help us out. I’m certain that if you call Amosite, you will be greeted by a friendly, helpful person--as we were!

It was with pleasure to assist you.
Thank you very much for the review.
It would have been easy to say we do not move barbeques but the joy in your voice after the task was completed is all the payment we require. Good luck in the future and please do not hesitate to give us a call if another task is required.

Asbestos identification and removal

David was very quick to respond and provided guidance with clear experience. David reviewed the job and made recommendations while educating me on options and likely approaches taken by other contractors. Safety and cleanliness were clear priorities for David and his team and all onsite workers were friendly and pleasant to deal with. The team communicated each step of the project and updated me as they progressed. Work was done thoroughly and the resulting space was clean and ready for next phase of project.

Amazing response

David and Gabriel were amazing and extremely helpful! They were prompt to pick up my call (at night... I was expecting a voicemail) and David sent Gabriel the next day for assessment. The prompt response and the explanations were invaluable. My realtor and I were impressed. We both joked that we hope we never need Amosite's services but if we do, we'll call them right away. The level of service provided without even being a customer are top-notch. They show great care, were very professional and ethical.

Now I believe the other Amazing reviews for David and Amosite!

Fantastic. We found asbestos-containing material in the house and David of Amosite generously helped us through a challenging situation with no charge. We reimbursed him his cost of testing two samples. All of his consultation and assistance was pro bono. We hired a different company that was cutting corners, with an owner that was very confrontational and defensive about any questions being asked. And he was not going to provide the proper paperwork to prove the abatement was completed properly - which is required to protect the value of the house. Be very careful, that other company had 20 reviews with a very good rating. We wouldn’t have known what was missing if we hadn’t talked to someone who knew better. And what expert with decades of experience and busy with his company is going to spend time on the phone providing advice… for free? That’s what David did, and then dealt with the owner of the other company directly on our behalf to get the situation resolved.

I highly recommend giving Amosite a call. Regardless of who you decide to hire, talking to Amosite will be time well spent.

The situation arose after we had scheduled a company for the abatement. The owner was really good to deal with. But one of his crew members wasn’t feeling well (during the time that COVID distancing was becoming a high priority) so he wasn’t able to send the crew. With best intentions he recommended this smaller company who he’d dealt with before. We made a rush decision as we had a major project underway in the house and we had the floor torn up in about half of our house. That turned out to be a mistake. They left out several of the aspects of the job that were agreed upon and left pieces of asbestos containing material scattered around after the job was supposedly done. My husband dealt with the individual directly to clean up the obvious missed items, but then spent many hours in a P100 respirator and protective gear doing a thorough cleaning. (try finding a P100 mask in March of 2020). After seeing the lack of quality work, it came as little surprise that the owner wasn’t going to provide adequate paperwork. David offered to call that person and assist him in being able to provide the proper documents. Without David's help, I don't know how we would have resolved the situation.

If you have any asbestos questions or issues, or anything else in the realm of what Amosite does, give them a call.

Sincere thanks to David for being a big help to a family in a very stressful situation.

Asbestos removal

Excellent service. I needed to get an asbestos board removed, which was close to my furnace and one of the ducts. Dave was the only one to call me back when I left a message regarding my issue. In fact he called me back within 10 minutes. Dave explain what needed to be done and asked me to send a picture. The same afternoon, Dave had a crew come out and perform the task. The crew was polite fast and did not leave any mess. Also the cost was told up front, so no issues there. The whole process was done in an afternoon.

I will definitely deal with Dave in the future, if I have other issues, such as plumbing, etc.

Great work to Dave and his team. Keep up the good work.

Asbestos Removal

Exceptional Service! I had some asbestos boards around the venting of my furnace and wanted them removed. In researching the different companies, I chose Amosite because of the good reviews. David came by to assess my situation and I found him to be a very personable, honest and knowledgeable person who really cares about his community and values his customers. Gabriel came over the following week to do the removal. He was very polite, professional and he did a great job. He left my furnace room very clean. I am extremely happy and satisfied with Amosite and I would highly recommend them to anyone and would certainly use their services again.

Asbestos identification

I called amosite as it was the first company that popped up on my homestars search. Spoke with Dave about possibly having asbestos in my basement. Dave was very informative and honest asked me to send him a picture of the item in question. He got back to me after reviewing the picture told me exactly what it was and how to dispose of it! All at no cost. Dave was very helpful and honest! Would definitely recommend them!
