You never know when you will bump into asbestos!!

Asbestos is a very hazardous and harmful material especially in the form which is applied to insulate tanks and pipes.  I am constantly noting asbestos in many older properties which I inspect including those built up to the 1960s. I was recently instructed to conduct a schedule of condition report on a building on the south coast and in the basement noted that the redundant hot water tank/cylinders had asbestos applied to them.  Brian Gale Surveyors liaise on a regular basis with various specialist asbestos removal companies and the budget cost we obtained for the removal of the asbestos from these particular tanks was approximately £15,000.  The discovery of asbestos meant that our Clients could be properly advised with regard to asbestos removal and costs.
