Re: ceiling tiles - asbestos?
Without a laboratory inspection, an inspector can't positively identify the presence or absence of asbestos (or lead). An inspector should disclose the possibility of asbestos based on appearance or age, and recommend that the material in question be tested by a qualified contractor.
The "Senior Member" designation under my name doesn't mean I know a lot, it just means I talk a lot.I've been a DIYer since I was 12 (thanks, Dad!). I have read several books on various home improvement topics. I do not have any current code books I can refer to. I was an apprentice plumber for two years.
