Hi I just purchased a house that has vermiculite on the front of the house on brick. I need someone to remove and dispose of it please image is attached

Note I also got this tested with clear safe environmental solutions with a certificate of analysis which states the vermiculite is cement sheeting with no fibres - and no asbestos detected.

Wall dosent sound hollow ... seem like the place was built in the 50s

1940s cottage so not sure what brick they used back in those days ... not sure on the concrete question ... the vermiculite was done over 40 years ago so not sure what concrete they used back then
That means there brittle bricks and there have a rough surface, so there a chance you might need to get someone to sand blaster after or an acid clean to fully clean it up. Can you tap the wall and see if sounds a little hollow

I was hoping to expose the brick but nervous that could be a risk
It will have to be done with a smaller jackhammer. Do you know what sort of bricks are behind it
And is the concert on the wall drummy

Well it depends on what you what the finished product. Did you want to expose the bricks
What where you going to do with it when the vermiculite is remove
Would probably need to inspect it
