Asbestos in the roofs?
« on: October 14, 2020, 08:33:44 am »
Hi!
I am a recent owner of a cottage, just outside Manchester. It is in a pretty solid condition and needs just a bit of work (and a redecorating of course). My main goal is to prepare it to let for a long term or for something like AirBnB. As I said, everything looks great and I am a little worried, or concerned more likely, for one thing. Asbestos. How can I check if any roofing on my property contains it? There is the cottage and two sheds - what can I do to make sure the materials are safe before I starts redecorating the interior? Thank you.

There are companies that can test for asbestos. You can provided samples, if you follow their instructions. If you have more than one area of concern, they can attend site and do the sampling for you.

It can be expensive, but for peace of mind its with it IMO.
