Asbestos Removal cost


If your property was built before 1987, there’s a high chance that it was constructed using asbestos sheets and other asbestos-based products. This is dangerous particularly if you’re planning to do some remodelling or renovations, since asbestos releases harmful particles into the air when it’s disturbed. These particles can enter your lungs and cause mesothelioma (a type of lung cancer) and other respiratory problems.


The best thing to do, then, is to hire professionals like Nateis Contracting who have the proper training and equipment to remove asbestos. If you’re wondering about asbestos removal cost, this guide is for you.


Factors That Affect the Price of Asbestos Removal


When it comes to costs, no two asbestos removal projects are the same: each project has a unique asbestos removal price. This comes from the fact that there are lots of factors that can affect the overall cost of the project. These include:


The amount of asbestos that must be removed.

  • The type of asbestos materials that are to be removed. Generally, smaller pieces/amounts of asbestos are more difficult to remove than large, solid sheets of asbestos and can therefore lead to higher prices.
     
  • The scope and difficulty of the project. When it comes to roofing, for example, the asbestos removal cost goes up as the gradient and height of the roof increases. So, removing asbestos from a steep, A-frame roof on a three-storey house is more expensive than from a gently sloping roof on a single storey home.
     
  • The number and type of obstacles in the area, such as tree limbs and branches for roofing projects.
