Rehabilitation, restoration and preservation of old and historic buildings, and inhabitable properties rather than demolition reduces construction waste and conserves natural resources. In demolition, the transportation of any hazardous waste can affect the environment and human health; and landfill use can be greatly reduced by avoiding disposal of hazardous and non-hazardous waste materials.
The preservation of historic structures, such as churches, museums and government buildings, and the renovation of older buildings can be a complicated process that requires great expertise to solve complex issues that can arise. Any restoration work as well as the products used have to meet the standards and guidelines set by the authoritative state or government.
GLOBAL Encasement, Inc.'s award winning green coatings offer the latest advancements in acrylic technology – creating simple solutions for the encasement/encapsulation of Asbestos, Lead-Based Paint, Weatherproofing, and Roofing. Engineered and designed to meet and exceed all known building codes and environmental regulations, they minimize the disturbance of the existing coatings, dust and fiber release.
Historic preservationists specify our coatings because they offer a long-term solution, minimal disturbance of the surfaces, do not obscure architectural details, and have moisture vapor transmission properties that allow the building to breathe, releasing moisture as it may occur.
