UPDATE 2: Demo
It’s demolition time! It will take 5 days to demo the unfinished basement, getting it ready to be transformed into a finished Lower Level creating more livable space for this family.
Working Around Challenges
Lead dust was extremely difficult to manage, it was coming through the floor, which was the demoed ceiling in the Lower Level, and was especially concerning with 2 young children in the home. To manage lead dust, White Crane Project Manager Bill and the demo crew were very diligent about resealing the work zone, dusting and cleaning up the residue as it appeared.
To remove three radiators, the hot water heating system had to be drained and brought back up in the same day. To cause the family the least amount of stress, we made this happen as quickly as possible, as it is the deep freeze of winter.
We will be masking off 2 separate areas of the house, the Upper-Level Bathroom and the entire Lower Level, both for lead safe removal and protection of the rest of the home.
