You will need an asbestos survey in Dronfield if you are planning on renovating your older building. You may be surprised to find out that many older buildings were constructed with asbestos containing materials. You may also wonder what the fuss is about. Asbestos was extensively used to complement building materials used in construction before 2000. It has a great many properties that made it the go-to additive for any building material. It was added to cement for its strength and durability. It was also added to ceiling tiles, insulation, gutters, roof tiles – the list is extensive.
While the asbestos provided many valuable properties to the building materials it was added to, it was discovered that asbestos also can cause incurable diseases. In Dronfield, an asbestos survey is required by law before any building work, renovation or demolition work begins. If you have an older building that you are planning on refurbishing, you will have to comply with legislation and have an asbestos survey completed before you can begin. Speak to ACS.

If you are planning on renovating your building, the best asbestos survey for this purpose is our refurb/demolition survey.
