    Default How much it cost me to get rid of asbestos sheeting..

    It kept me awake at night wondering, so though i'd report my costs here, might help someone.

    Country Vic - cement sheeting on interior walls, quoted at $20 m2, so 40m2 + compliance certificate was $1800. Not bad for someone's 1/2 day work, though illegal for me to do as too large a volume. They removed, vacuumed, pvc sprayed that walls. All good. Very happy.

    Previously I removed myself, (was the first time- very stressful ) costs included respirator $40, suit $20, plastic sheeting$80, trailer , dump - $40, but would add a crap load of stress, and very happy to get professionals for all major jobs.

    Only my experience, but it might be useful for someone somewhere..

    Ruby thankyou, that is a great help to me. I'm considering having our place done and that gives me a rough figure to work towards.

    40m2 for $1800 is good enough for me. I am in ACT and ask the quote is <10m2 for $2000. It was said "you live in the house and we need to make sure we clean properly".
