Asbestos

Asbestos was used in building materials from the 1950s to the early 2000s, most commonly used as an insulating material. As long as it remains undamaged and undisturbed, it is safe.

If asbestos is disturbed, it can release fibres into the air. That’s why we carry out asbestos surveys before any refurbishment or building work is carried out in your home, so you must allow us access to do this. If the survey shows that we need to remove any asbestos, you can be sure that it will be done in a safe and controlled way. We have our own highly skilled asbestos removal engineers who will come and take care of everything, giving you peace of mind.

Asbestos is dangerous if it’s drilled into, broken, cut or mishandled. So, if you’re planning any DIY work, contact us first on 0345 065 5656; this kind of thing really is best left to the experts.
