Example text

Some project monitors are harder to please than others, and an abatement contractor's decision to bid or not may be influenced by knowledge of who will do the visual inspections. If the abatement contractor declines to bid on the basis of that knowledge, it may turn out to be better for all concerned. It is unfortunate that many publicly bid abatement projects do not require a prior site visit as a condition of submitting a bid. As a result, the successful contractor often finds more asbestos than he bargained for, or other conditions that make the job more difficult and wipe out the anticipated profit.

9 are also broken out as to the type of ACM: surfacing material, thermal system insulation and miscellaneous material. Because the "current condition" assessment shows the ACM as it exists during the survey, not what could happen to it in the future, the fifth and sixth AHERA categories-potential for damage and potential for significant d a m a g e - are not relevant. Damage thresholds such as the 10% and 25% rules for localized and distributed damage (see The AHERA Protocol) may be used as a guide to classifying the current condition of ACM, but it is worth remembering that within each ranking a continuum of conditions will be found.

Asbestos-cement roofing and, to a lesser extent, siding is subject to weathering that is mainly due to water and its various chemical contaminants [1]. After many years, exterior surfaces can degrade to the point that asbestos fibers are exposed and released (Fig. 56). Note that no analogy is given in Table 2 to the AHERA assessment factors as was done for the current condition in Table 1. This is because the fifth and sixth AHERA categories distinguish between potential ]'or damage, which exists in all cases to some degree, and potential l-or significant damage.
