  • Okay firstly is the roof sealed or painted? That’s your first option if it isn’t than painting or sealing will slow the deterioration of the entire roof surface which will continue to erode due to reaction to acidic pollution. Before you do that for the specific cracks seal them with liquid nails/sealant or similar if possible. You will need to…[Read more]

  • Hi demmy, sorry I didnt reply sooner there was some IT problem with me directly replying. Yes you can take your own samples in a residential property providing you follow the safety precautions on how to take it. Also in most states you can remove up to 10 sq metres of non friable asbestos. In Canberra you aren’t allowed to do anything without an…[Read more]

  • Hi sandhya, I meant like any other problem  with a house for example with cracked walls which needed stabilising or ants needing treatment. Many people like yourself are scared off by a house with an asbestos problem- even identifying it could mean securing a discount at purchase or knowing someone like a licenced asbestos removalist who can sort…[Read more]

  • Hello Sandhya

    Thanks for the post about the house – you will need to see the holes- Real estate agents tend to understate the problem- if it is just a couple of small holes then they just need sealing or patching. If its big holes with sheeting debris this may be a bigger problem. All houses built in the 1970s in Australia will have some type o…[Read more]

  • Hi Demmytrios- you will need to check your local Regulations – Asbestos Regulations vary from country to country and even State to State- so contact your regulating body for what is allowed in your area. And if you are allowed say up to 10sq metres removal where do you dispose of it.
    Hope that helps

  • Hi Tony,

    went and did a bit more study on carbon fibre and there are no studies or results yet of long term health risks for exposure to respirable carbon fibres. Its too new a material, currently airborne dust monitoring is being done on some sites and measured to similar scales as synthetic mineral fibres and asbestos fibres but there is not…[Read more]

  • Hi Joana

    Asbestos containing material is rated for risk on a few things but basically if it can crumble between your fingers and is in your face that’s when its a significant risk. So a painted and sealed asbestos cement sheet is not a problem unless  you drill it and have your face unprotected near it. But something like pipe lagging can be…[Read more]

  • Hello Tony,

    I’ll investigate this a bit more and get back to you. My initial thoughts would be no as its not sprayed or usually friable, however it probably will pose a hazard similar to synthetic mineral fibre and glass fibre materials. But as I said I will investigate some more. Thanks for the query.

  • Asbestos can be in a lot of different materials. When they refer to the switchboard its usually the backing or mounting board but it can also be the side, back and top & bottom panels, inside the fuses and a number of other areas. If you could send a photo I could have a look. There may also be asbestos debris which is breathable inside the…[Read more]

  • We bought a corner house and land in our smsf originally planning to knock down and put a duplex up, then they changed the rules way back and you can’t change the usage so that was out. But can you add a Granny Flat to the backyard? Does that change the usage as we already have 2 street access. Anyone got any experience with this or any opinions. thanks

  • Hello
    I’ve just started a series of articles on asbestos for investors with different topics covered and I’m also looking for ideas for future articles.
