    Can it been determined what the decramastic tiles were made from. Is it just assumed the mastic or bitumen contained asbestos!

    I thought they were just thin steel with a bitumen stone chip or course sand mix, there are a handful around here but weren't popular at all. seem to remember they didn't like being walked on nor cheap to install. Weren't popular with the local builders of that period. A bit like Mr Fluffy, little time bombs by the sound of it. Have to feel sorry for the painter, as well as the owner. Looks like they certainly had greater popularity elsewhere.

    What I was wondering if what was tested was dust settlement on the roof, if near a main road and it was brake dust.

    The only way of knowing that would be to sample other properties not affected by the waterblasting. Small cases like this always seem to blow up into a major remediation whereas a disaster that affects a wider area gets excused as being only a slight risk.

    I have to agree with that.
    Don't know what NZ is like but here the asbestos removal industry is a joke.
