I am planning major renovations to my house including knocking down several internal walls and extending externally. I have had tests come back positive that the ceiling artex and wall plaster contains chrysotile asbestos.
I have had a quote of £30k to remove all the plaster and ceiling coverings in the house (approx 420m2) which is a lot of money however it needs doing and I would rather get the whole lot done while the whole house is under renovation.
I have been doing some reading up and there seems to be mixed reviews on how dangerous chrysotile is.
For the sake of saving 30k, would I be crazy to buy a very decent mask and suit and hack away the walls myself?
Has anyone else done this or even thought about it?
