Popcorn Ceilings

Popcorn ceilings are also referred to as stucco ceilings or textured ceilings. Because this plaster-based texture included asbestos, many property owners opt to remove the surface altogether.

Asbestos Testing

Because asbestos is found in so many building materials, it’s sometimes difficult to confirm whether asbestos is actually present. Professional sampling and testing will confirm the nature of the material.

Vermiculite Removal

Vermiculite was commonly used for attic insulation in the past, with some vermiculite products that contained asbestos. Here again, professional removal is the best option to prevent any health risks. 

How To Safely Deal with Asbestos

It is very important to safely handle asbestos to prevent asbestos exposure. Usually, asbestos fibers become airborne when they are mishandled and can get lodged into the lungs, heart, and abdomen.

What Our Clients Say About Us

Hiring a construction contractor to renovate my house for the first time, I was not familiar with any of the DSS-related requirements.  So, it was quite reassuring to find someone like Tony who is trustworthy and knowledgeable. I also needed a quick turnaround for the completed DSS report and Tony delivered (on time, as promised).  In short, Tony was great to deal with. I would recommend him to anyone, anytime.   

Richard, Toronto

Tony did an excellent job with inspecting the house. He was very knowledgable in his field and thorough with his inspection. He carefully and patiently looked at both the exterior and interior of the building. He pointed out the deficiencies, what the risks are and how to rectify them. He answered all of our questions and made sure that we understood them. He offered his expertise and help if we needed.

Mandan, Toronto

I have heard a lot of stories about home inspection but I could honestly say that I had a great experience. I would like to thank Tony from Inch by Inch Home Inspection for the great experience.

Teresa, Toronto

Tony Muscat of Inch by Inch Inspections is extremely professional, caring and a prompt individual, when he heard we may have a mold problem he came immediately. Tony was worried with the level of mold that was contained in this recent purchased older home and he walked me through the process of getting rid of the mold and what dangers were involved. He paid the best attention to us, while we went through this horrible ordeal. The fact that impressed me the most was his vast amount of knowledge, and the dangers of each mould which there are many. He is extremely professional and equipped to handle any job. I would recommend Inch by Inch, (Tony) to anyone he is a concerned and serious individual, that cares about your family!!!!!!!
