Asbestos Removal

The dangers of asbestos are widely recognised today, and this means that asbestos removal should only be completed by professionals.

Most demolition projects involve the removal of asbestos.  So where is asbestos most commonly found?


  • Wall cladding, at times concealed under other decorative cladding including timber, metal, plastic or imitation brick

  • Under roof eaves and flashing under roof tiles

  • Corrugated roof sheeting

  • Back of electricity meter boards


  • Interior walls and ceilings most commonly in wet areas such as the kitchen, bathroom, and laundry.

  • Other concealed areas such as linen cupboards, under floor coverings and fireplaces.

  • Some homes are also internally lined with asbestos wall and ceiling sheeting.

Other Areas

  • Fencing

  • Garden sheds

  • Outside laundry and toilet

  • Detached garage or carport

  • Underground services such as pipes and pits

  • Buried or concealed asbestos waste under floor voids, verandahs and under concrete slabs (sometimes used for concrete formwork)

Inspection Required


It is important that we inspect your property to evaluate the existence of asbestos to provide you an accurate demolition estimate.

Asbestos Clearance Certificate

Legislation requires that, for all asbestos removal, your property is inspected by an independent licensed authority who will issue a clearance certificate confirming that the asbestos has been safely removed from the site. 

Macarthur Demolition complies with that requirement and you will receive an independent clearance certificate at the end of the demolition project.

Demolition services companies cannot issue a certificate for their own work.
