If you’re unsure whether the property contains asbestos or not, or if we think it may have asbestos, we will require a sample to be tested for confirmation of what the substance is.
If the report confirms you’re home contains asbestos we’ll inform you immediately, and will support you to a qualified asbestos remover to have the product removed from your home. All asbestos removal must be completed in accordance with the specified Government compliance, regulations and safety standards.
A standard size full bathroom renovation will usually take about 3 to 5 weeks depending on the finished required and structural elements needed. This is primarily due to the strict drying times needed to comply with Australian Standards and the ordering of custom products.
