Take a drive down Pacific Coast Highway in Laguna or a stroll near the Back Bay in Newport Beach and everywhere you turn there seems to be some sort of home remodeling happening. Whether it’s a single area renovation, like a bathroom or a kitchen, or a bigger job like a total tear down, homeowners are investing in their homes by updating.
“We’ve seen a big boom in work, especially throughout our beach communities,” said Rich Jackson of Jackson Demo. “Homeowners are looking for contractors who can deliver services both on time and on budget.”
And while some might be tempted to take on a remodel on their own, experts caution against it. Many of the homes built before the 1980s can contain hazardous materials including lead and asbestos. These materials, if not handled properly can cause serious health risks, including cancer.
“You can’t see asbestos with the human eye. And it is in a lot of building materials that you wouldn’t necessarily think about like roofing, tile and drywall,” Jackson said. “You need to have those materials tested before demolition and properly handled by a contractor with a specialized license.”
