The ZAI Trust explains how and why it assists with Zonolite abatement.
An unfortunate truth about many older building materials is that they're found to have serious health hazards many years down the line, when they've already been installed in thousands of homes. Zonolite insulation is one such material. This grey-brown or silver-gold colored insulation is now known to contain high levels of asbestos.
If you're concerned that your attic might have Zonolite insulation, call in the professionals at Complete Home Solutions. Only a specialist should inspect and test your attic for this material because of the danger it poses. If Zonolite is discovered, we'll help you get started on removing it right away.

Zonolite insulation was widely produced and installed between the 1940s and 1990s. It became so popular because it was lightweight, fire resistant, and had a decent R value for the time. However, the vermiculite used to make it was later found to harbor some of the most toxic kinds of asbestos. While not all vermiculite contains asbestos, all Zolonite does.
Today, millions of homes and other buildings are estimated to still have Zonolite insulation. Because prolonged exposure to asbestos can cause serious disease like cancer, raising awareness and allowing homeowners to get rid of this material is crucial.
However, it's equally important that you do not disturb this insulation on your own; if you suspect your attic might have Zonolite, restrict access to the attic and don't store anything in it. The trained specialists at Complete Home Solutions who know how to safely handle this material can then remove it for you.
Zonolite abatement costs are understandably a concern for many homeowners, but no one should have to live in a home that can make them sick. That's why the Zonolite Attic Insulation Trust was created. Homeowners can apply to receive up to $4,125 for reimbursement of Zonolite abatement.
