Demolishing an Asbestos House
Many homeowners and investors are looking to revamp their properties to keep in with the modern times. This might mean a renovation in the kitchen or bathroom or a complete demolishing of the house.
Before demolishing work or refurbishment take place, asbestos should be removed. This is to reduce the risk of disturbing and releasing dangerous airborne asbestos fibres.
However, it is not always practical for asbestos removal to occur before demolishing a structure. This may be due to acess issues or other restrictions. Refurbishment work can start before asbestos is removed as long as it’s removed safely in stages throughout the refurbishment process.
Asbestos can be removed in different stages of a project, provided it is practical and safe to do so.

Why Remove Asbestos Eaves?
Regular rain, heavy winds and other damaging weather conditions can cause house eaves to become worn out and can rot, cause leakage and can deteriorate.
As asbestos was a popular material choice to build eaves on houses within the 40s to 80s, if eaves become damaged they can pose a serial health risk to an individual or the environment.
An asbestos removal specialist must remove asbestos eaves. You can find out more information about the dangers of asbestos eaves here.
