It can be beneficial to have an asbestos survey carried out prior to the purchase of a property to ensure no nasty surprises.

Asbestos surveys are carried out to ascertain the location, type and condition of asbestos containing materials within a property.

Whether carrying out refurbishment works to your property or demolishing part or all of it, it is your responsibility to make sure everyone involved is aware of any asbestos.

Midlands Asbestos Solutions use only surveyors with a P402 qualification UKAS accreditation. This ensures high standard surveys and a good quality report.

Examples of asbestos within a domestic property include Artex (textured coating), floor tiles, asbestos cement roof tiles and corrugated asbestos cement roofs on outbuildings.

In properties with integral garages asbestos insulating board (AIB) ceilings are not uncommon particularly if built in the 1950’s or 1960’s.

Also in bespoke properties built in a similar period there is the potential for other asbestos materials such as pipe lagging & AIB to be used.

Having an asbestos survey carried out can ensure peace of mind, everybody’s health and safety and ensure minimum disruption during building works.

Midlands Asbestos Solutions offer extremely competitive rates on asbestos surveys so please don’t hesitate to contact us for further information.
