Is this plasterboard likely to contain asbestos

Postby beardyboy » Wed Nov 18, 2020 11:19 am

Hi,

1930s house, please can someone tell me if this looks like plasterboard containing asbestos. I realise it should be tested, but I was told in these houses may have asbestos sandwiched in the plasterboard, this doesn't look like anything is in between, just wanted to check.

Hi beardyboy
No one will be able to tell you from pictures.
Scrape some off and send it to an asbestos testing lab.
