I found this out the other day when I was getting new quotes for my General Liability policy. A few of the insurance co's went to my website and saw that I do Swimming pool removal and they said they wouldn't cover me because there is silica in Gunite. They said that Silica caused black lung and didn't want to be responsible for it. I have no idea where they got their info from.

Everything has silica, Ins Co's will always look for a reason not to cover you or jack your rates. Very Frustraiting:mad:

What is the story with silica? What kind of regulations govern it, and what are the implications for demolition?

Chris, Definately, Thanks for the offer. Quick question for you. Have you heard of Silica becoming the new Asbesteos? I was requoting my insurance and when a few Co's saw that I do swimming pool removal they baucked at the demo of Gunite pools because there as Silica in itSurprised

I have insurance now but apparently this is a new concern:mad:.

Vice versa if you ever need a good dependable guy to help out with equipment let me know. I know I will need you sooner or later.

Hi HLNTOIZ,

Welcome to the forum! I like your thought process, start small and then learn as much as you can.

On the swimming pools, if I can just give you a little bit of advice, check with each city/town's guidelines on what is required to remove a pool. Some will say you have to remove the whole thing, some will say that you can break up the bottom and remove the top 2-3 feet and the filled with 2' of stone and then dirt. So check the regulations for each city/town.

Thanks James, In my contracts it is the customers responsibility to pull the permit and see what the city requires. Being in CT towns are closes and I can be working all over the state. I don't have time to find out every towns requirements. I get a copy of the permit and info for my files and we are good. I did about 10 removals this year so I think I got a pretty good handle on it now. Every one was a little different but they all worked out well. Thanks for the advice though.
