Vermiculite is an insulation product used primarily in attics and wall cavities, although there are many other applications. It can be best described as gold colored layered granules. Commonly sold as ZONOLITE, this material can be an issue when selling or purchasing a home/building or during renovations.
The Zonolite Trust Fund has been established to help homeowners pay for removal of this material. This link will walk you through the steps required to apply for assistance through the trust.
If you are considering buying or selling a home or office space, renovating or demolishing a building built before 1986 you should consider testing suspect materials to mitigate future liabilities and additional costs to abate or encapsulate asbestos containing materials . Today, there are not as many products that contain the potentially harmful mineral. However, there are many older homes or buildings that could certainly have been constructed before 1986 or with outdated products containing asbestos.
