Asbestos had been a commonly used product within the building industry up until it was finally banned in the late 1990’s.
The most popular use of asbestos has been within roofing materials, particularly to outbuildings and garages and this will always be highlighted if still in situ within present day valuation and homebuyers reports.
Asbestos can also be found in many other areas in your home, for example; ceiling panels, wall panels, soffits, some artex type coverings, floor tiles etc.
Such asbestos products become a risk and a health hazard if they are disturbed, such as sanded, sawed, drilled or taken apart.
If asbestos has been identified within a property we can organise an asbestos sampling identification and surveying service and recommend the correct course of action for its safe removal or encapsulation.
