By fully enclosing the asbestos on your home with vinyl or aluminium exterior cladding you can safeguard it against future damage. It may be best to simply clad over asbestos sheeting if:
It is illegal to conduct your own asbestos removal.
Removing asbestos from an average home can cost upwards of $20,000, and this price does not include re-cladding. Strict health and safety requirements licensed asbestos removers must adhere to include special removal, bagging, and disposal procedures – all of which incur greater expenses than other materials.
Let Abbey Thermalboards safely provide asbestos cladding services for your property
All of Abbey Thermalboards’ tradesmen are Work Safety in the Construction Industry certified and have received full Asbestos Awareness Training.
We have developed special work place health & safety approved techniques to secure cladding to your home without disturbing the asbestos material underneath.
No. Never attempt to work with asbestos based materials yourself.
If you choose to clad over asbestos sheeting, you must hire a professional to do the job.
When it comes to working with asbestos,
DIY isn’t just dangerous, it’s illegal.
Anyone working with any asbestos-containing materials needs to undergo “Asbestos Awareness Training”.
There may also be other procedures that you may legally be bound to follow. The advice of your local council, state safety authority and current state and federal legislation must be sought before the commencement of work.
If you don’t have the industry know-how, there’s no way you’ll be able to secure the exterior cladding without puncturing or cracking the sheeting and exposing dangerous fibres in the process.
Without training in the right installation techniques, safely installing your own house cladding over asbestos is virtually impossible.
Disposing of asbestos-containing materials also requires extra precautions.
Even if you end up needing to get rid of a tiny amount of sheeting, you’ll need to rent a skip specifically lined to contain asbestos, and take it to a licenced waste facility for disposal. Disposing of asbestos is much more expensive than getting rid of any other material.
Never risk your health, finances and home’s value on a DIY fibro cladding job.
Abbey Thermalboards are fully equipped, certified and licenced to clad over asbestos-containing materials. We’ll get the job done right for a fair price, so you can rest assured that your home will stay safe well into the future.
We would highly recommend Abbey Thermalboards. From the start to the finish it was seamless and they were happy to work around our working. We had Dirk that come and gave a free measure and quote he was good to deal he was very informative and patient without being pushy for us to sign a contract answering all our questions and concerns with the upmost professional manner. We also liked the safeguard payment plan that protects us with us holding back 50% of the final contract amount to make sure we are completely happy with the end result. We had Rick Grayfower ( a one man band ) come and install the Vinyl Cladding what a absolute pleasure to have at our place. His craftmanship is impecabble, his professionalism is second to none and I would NOT hesitate in recommending Rick to anyone in our local vicinity. His knowledge and experience shows in the completion of our house its exceptional and its exceeded all our expectations we couldn't be happier with the results you are a bloody Legend Rick and a huge asset to Abbey thanks again!
