Hi I’m interested in getting my garage roof removed. I’m looking to get a quote for the removal and disposal of it. It hasn’t been tested for asbestos but dates from the 1960’s and is corrugated cement board. I look forward to hearing from you Regards Mark Sheriff

Hello, I'm looking to buy a house and the survey came back saying that may contain asbestos. I would like to understand where there is asbestos, and the condition (if there is), and also how much would it be to get it removed. Many thanks, Belen
