    Hi there,

    I have recently purchased a 1960's three bedroom house and plan to do some renovations.

    This is my first reno and I was hoping to get some advice please.

    I'm currently getting some quotes to remove asbestos, including eaves and gables.

    I'm not sure which tradies I need to contact to replace the eaves and gables after removal. Is this a roofer or a carpenter?

    Does anyone have any experience with this that they could share please?

    The house is in Sydney and if anyone can recommend any contractors, that would be a great as well.

    Sounds like a repair than reno - Is it broken and a hazard?

    Overall its in pretty condition. I am removing the asbestos walls and ceilings in the laundry, and wanting to do the eaves and gables at the same time.

    Once removed get a carpenter in to replace in hardisheet etc.

    If its in good nick then question why you are doing it at all, asbestos isnt a big risk if its intact, painted adn in good condition

    Putting in eaves and gables once asbestos is removed doesn’t require a licensed builder at all.

    It just needs a (qualified ideally) carpenter.
