How is it almost Easter already? The year is flying by and it's getting busier for us each month! Our April newsletter includes helpful advice if you think your house might have asbestos, a recent DIG IT project, plus we do our bit for the environment!

Enjoy & Happy Easter! 

What exactly is asbestos?
It’s a versatile building material that can withstand heat, erosion and decay and is also fire and water resistant. Asbestos was an extremely popular building material in Australia between the mid-1940s and mid-1980s (in fact, at this point, Australia was one of the highest users in the world. 

What can asbestos exposure do to you?
If broken, cut or drilled, materials containing asbestos can release dangerous particles which, if breathed in, can cause asbestosis, lung cancer or the incurable disease mesothelioma.

Which homes are most likely to be affected? 
Any house or apartment built or renovated before 1990 can be affected, whether it’s made of brick, weatherboard or fibro.

The guys have been working hard on a project in Dee Why this month. The project included the demolition and removal of an existing, unstable double garage, stairs and retaining walls then excavating to make room for a new garage, walls and driveway. 
Doing our bit for the environment

At a recent job, we were surprised to see a lot of clothing left behind by the previous tenants! Mindful of reducing our environmental footprint and not wanting them to go to landfill, we enlisted the help of Clothing Clean Up. They will come and collect unwanted clothes free of charge and send them to people in need, mostly in 3rd world countries or they are recycled and given a new life! 
What is the cost for a site inspection & quote?
We offer a free site inspection for every client, regardless of how large or small the project may be. There is no obligation to proceed with the quote we provide, so you are free to compare our rates with other companies and choose the best option for your needs. Contact us if you have any questions about a quote you have received or would like to book a free site inspection.
