You will need an asbestos survey in Atherton if you own an older building. Many, if not all, older buildings have some form of asbestos within their structure. Asbestos was widely used as a building material additive for its many positive properties. By using asbestos in building materials, it resulted in a strong, durable, material that is fire retardant and resistant to both chemicals and water. Asbestos is commonly found in roof tiles, insulation, electrical panels, down pipes. In fact, it is found in just about any building material you can think of.
As it was discovered that asbestos is lethal to those who breathe in its microscopic fibres, it has since been banned. In Atherton, an asbestos survey is an important and required step to take prior to any remodelling, renovation or demolition of an older building.
