Thinking of purchasing an Eichler that has been updated. Owner says that the old floors were removed, and concrete sanded prior to putting down new mastic and membrane approx 7 years ago. They said that there was no absestos on the flooring, that everything was removed in order to make sure the mastic would stick. The floor was floated to insure there were no surface imperfections. They even put a waterproof membrane with fiberglass meshing along with the mastic. The tiles put on are of commercial-grade. The work was done by a licensed contractor, not an abatement company. Our concern is that there are still particulates that might be in the home. Do you think there is the chance that absestos might be present? Any thoughts or feedback would be appreciated.
It is obviously our first time purchasing an Eichler!
