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. Please talk to our staff about Asbestos removal cost.

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. Asbestos removal cost will vary depending on the type and scale of work involved.

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.

Please bear in mind that our Asbestos removal involves Non-Friable and our Licence is a Class 2 which means we are restricted to Non-Friable. We have access to a Subcontractor that is Licensed to deal with Friable Asbestos but the cost is significantly higher due to the complex operation involved in removing Friable Asbestos.  Please contact us for a more advanced quote if you have Friable Asbestos and we will get our subcontractor involved for the quotation.

Our Licence Number for Non-Friable Restricted Asbestos Removal is WR865.

Rough Guide to Removal Costs

We provide the pricing guide below since many homeowners and landlords want to have a ballpark figure for the cost of asbestos removal. However, we want to emphasise that this is a rough guide since, as mentioned above, numerous factors can affect the total asbestos removal price for each project.


Approximately $140 per sqm


Approximately $120 per sqm


Approximately $140 – $160 per sqm dependant on product (ie. Brick Veneer)


Approximately $120 per sqm


Approximately $150 per sqm does not include Vinyl Flooring as could be considered friable. (Will require testing)

These are just some of the areas that we work on — we also remove asbestos from eaves, fencing, and sheds. We likewise remove asbestos pipes that are installed within the property.
