Hi all - have just gone to contract on my first big renovation project. The only thing worrying me at this point (plenty more to come I am sure) is all the internal walls and ceiling is asbestos. Ive made a few preliminary phone calls - prices range from $30 - $100 a meter to remove. A rough calculation shows there's about 300sqm of asbestos to be removed. My First question is - do I need to remove it? Mostly it is in good condition. But I do not want to install a nice bathroom and kitchen over the top of the asbestos if its going to detract from the value of the home. Secondly - Will I be doing myself a disservice if I plaster over it? Is it worthwhile only removing it from some rooms? i.e. bathroom and kitchen areas where most of the work is going to be. Thanks a bunch if you can answer any of my questions - or even better if you can refer someone in brisbane to have a look at it that would be awesome! Many Thanks.
