DIY Asbestos Removal for Property Renovation

Postby dazboj » Sun Oct 02, 2016 5:59 pm

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?
