Asbestos Ceiling Removal

Artex ceilings

Asbestos Ceiling Removal

A lot of properties built in the 70s, 80s and 90s feature Artex ceilings (a textured finish with swirled or stippled patterns).

Up until the mid-80s, Artex used asbestos as a strengthening ingredient. This does not necessarily mean that your Artex ceiling will contain asbestos, but it is important to get an expert to conduct asbestos surveys if you are not sure.

If your Artex ceiling was built before the 90s, then there is a higher chance that it contains asbestos, and we’d strongly recommend that you get professional asbestos testing to be on the safe side.

  • "Extremely quick response from Andy on my initial online quote. Very helpful from first contact on the phone clarifying all my questions and issues particularly around the difficult access to the back of the property. Excellent price to remove asbestos shed roof as well as demolish and remove rest of the shed. Arrived when they said they would, did the job fast and well, left no mess. Would definitely recommend."

    Phil Blue
  • "Sent email about an asbestos test on textured ceiling, replied immediately and arranged the test 2 days later. 5th March arrived at the arranged time and sample taken, very professional and extremely nice technician. The certificate arrived mid-morning 8th March. If work is required on ceilings will definitely use this company, very competitive rates."

All wear the appropriate clothing whilst handling the asbestos. Organising the quote and the demolition was easy. I'd highly recommend Goodbye Asbestos for any Asbestos removal you may require."

    Callum Stott
  • "I wanted to say a big thank you to Chris and the team for the superb job they did this morning in dismantling our horrible old asbestos/concrete garage! It was all done very quickly and professionally. They wore PPE and the asbestos roof panels were securely wrapped in plastic sheeting. The site was left clean and tidy afterwards. I also appreciated your sending me your waste licence and a copy of your insurance which was very reassuring as one reads some horror stories about waste disposal cowboys."

    Elizabeth Anderson
  • "I was really pleased to find a company that could dispose of an old asbestos garage that had already been dismantled and stacked in my garden for years. I thought it was going to be much more hassle than it was and was pleasantly surprised at the cost. The guys arrived and were polite, courteous and efficient. No hidden charges or additions to the quote. I will happily recommend them to friends and family."

Garage ceilings

Asbestos used to be used in garage roofs as it is a natural fire-retardant and has excellent thermal insulation properties. It was also used in corrugated roofing for garages, due to its strength and durability. Asbestos surveys show whether the material is present in garage roofs. If so, the corrugated roofing may require asbestos disposal – or, in cases where the asbestos is too widespread, you may need to invest in a replacement roof for your garage.

Remember: asbestos is only dangerous in powder, dust or fibre form that you breathe in when the material is disturbed. So if you want to find out whether there is asbestos in your ceiling or floor tiling, it is essential to get professional asbestos testing rather than taking a DIY approach and poking around, as you could end up doing more harm than good. Here at Goodbye Asbestos, we’ll provide you with hassle-free advice for asbestos removal in your home or commercial space, putting your mind at ease that your property is completely safe.
