H mi old Mate
Do you need a hand? I can throw a couple of axes in a bucket   :salute:
I can be there in an hour and a half as it's all down hill from my house  :pok:

Knowing you Tony, you're already on your way  :D

Don't fight it Chris, just sit back and let Tony do his thing.

It always warm my heart to see this on MTO!  Personally, I believe it is what Christmas all about.  :cheers:

Why asbestos though?

Asbestos sheet used to be very popular here a few years ago,
apart from the asbestosis problem it's some good stuff for building, very stable!

The 50ft tall silver birch at the bottom of our garden fell over this afternoon, and landed on our garage.  Bugger.

Y-yikes!

Yep.  Looks like we've got the less dangerous stuff mixed with cement in the roofing sheets - it's in fairly good condition, and not broken up (apart from where the tree went through it ::)).  Short term exposure shouldn't be harmful, so I went in today to pull out some stuff that would be awkward to get replaced.  Been meaning to get round to remove the roof and fit a more water-tight one anyway, guess now I've got no excuse.

Be careful H Man, asbestos dust is a deadly carcinogen, wear a dust mask at least, and maybe wet the stuff down before you disturb it. I have done some asbestos mitigation on jobs I was involved with, and it is a *no kidding* toxic substance. We hire professionals to deal with it if it's a big job, and they come in with sealed suits and respirators. My father died from cancer that was very likely due to asbestos exposure, it only takes a little bit in your lungs for the microscopic fibers to attach themselves. Please be safe about this stuff.  :ahhh

 :iagree:

Nothing to play with if you can. Years ago, at a former High School, a shop teacher decided to remove a meat locker in one of the tech rooms. Ages ago, the room was used for game processing as they used to teach outdoor education in that room. The teacher took his class to tear down the meat locker which was of a good size. Unbeknownst to him and his students, the whole thing was made of asbestos boards. Once the caretaker found out, the whole tech wing was closed, and a professional company was hired for asbestos removal. We are talking negative pressure for the room, and full protective suits. Cost the school board a mint, and disrupted the whole tech department for a week.

Kind of like mercury. When I was a student, the science teacher would pass a drop of mercury around so that we could feel it in our hands. These days, it would rightfully require a classroom evacuation and use of special equipment to clean up a mercury spill.

Yes, you're right. Thanks for the advice! The building contractor (who can handle the asbestos properly) can come out on Monday to take a look, so hopefully we'll be able to get started on dealing with the tree soon.

Yep.  :tu: Well the tree removal, cleanup and roof replacement will all be covered, as well as anything that's been damaged in the garage.

Hey buddy, asbestos cement sheet is not licensed for removal, only for disposal. Asbestolux sheeting is licensed for removal and was commonly used for insulation. The cement sheeting normally contains crysotile (so does asbestolux) just in case you were curious.

PM me the name of the contractor if you have any problems, I may know a few people who can help speed things along.
