After opening a wall on a Monday, we unexpectedly came across an asbestos insulated vent. I called Templar that evening, and had a consultation scheduled for the next day. Robert came by, took one look at the vent and confirmed our fears. He took a handful of samples in a few other areas, answered all of my questions and gave some precautionary advice on what we could do in the meantime. Without asking, he made some calls and was able to procure some cleaning supplies and PPE at wholesale prices. I heard back from him on the Thursday with the analysis results and we scheduled a time for the next day to get the vent removed. His colleague David, came in the morning, answered a bunch of questions and got to work. He took a tonne of precautions, sealed the area off and when finished left the place spotless.
I would recommend Templar without hesitation. Both Robert and David, were consumate professionals. They were knowledgeable and reassuring and took care of things super quickly. While asbestos removal may not exactly be the type of thing you WANT to spend money on when doing renovations, it's one of those things that has to get done. If you're unfortunate enough to come across it in your travels, I would recommend reaching out to Templar if you want to get the job done right!
