The project work is undertaken by qualified, experienced operatives, a majority of whom have been employed in the industry for many years and are equipped to undertake contracts safely and effectively.
Our non-licensed asbestos removal works range from single garages to large factories, retail units, commercial buildings etc.

Asbestos cement roofs.
Gutters and downpipes.
Floor coverings/ tiles.

Asbestos Garage, Shed Roof Removal:
For all your home asbestos removal requirements, Gtek have many teams carrying out the safe removal of domestic asbestos materials. The most common enquiry is the removal of corrugated asbestos roofs from sheds and garages. Gtek have specialist teams who can remove and replace
identified materials thus giving our clients a one stop shop for the entire removal / replacement procedure.
The price of removing asbestos from your garage or asbestos garage roof removal will vary and depend on a number of factors, including the following:
Size – obviously, the larger your extension or out-building, the more you will have to pay for removal due to the disposal cost. Materials – the cost of asbestos removal might also depend on what your shed or garage is made of. It can be extremely difficult to remove asbestos from certain materials and also if we are required to remove the entire building we would also need to know the construction and material of all parts of the building.
Gtek Demolition Ltd employs a specialist company to carry out asbestos surveys to meet every clients needs
Refurbishment / Pre-Demolition Survey:
A refurbishment / pre-demolition survey is needed before any refurbishment / pre-demolition work is carried out. This type of survey is used to locate and describe, as far as reasonable practicable, all ACMs in the area where the refurbishment work will take place or in the whole building if demolition is planned. The survey will be fully intrusive and involve destructive inspection, as necessary, to gain access to all areas, including those that may be difficult to reach. A refurbishment / pre-demolition survey may also be required in other circumstances, e.g. when more intrusive maintenance and repair work will be carried out or for plant removal or dismantling.
The presumption that a material contains asbestos can be tested by laboratory analysis using polarised light microscopy (PLM) as outlined in MDHS 77.
Analysis of asbestos samples must be undertaken by a laboratory that is accredited by UKAS as complying with ISO 17025 (General requirements for the competence of testing and calibration laboratories BSI). This has been set out in CAW Regulation 20 - Standards for Analysis and has a two year lead in, becoming law on 21st November 2004.
Removal of ACMs already in place in good condition is not required by the regulations but buildings should be surveyed, asbestos labelled and its position and condition recorded to allow any asbestos to be 'managed' safely. The type of asbestos in the material, the condition of the material, its fibre release potential and its location in the building are among the factors that determine if it will be removed or repaired.
Guidance on safely controlling work with asbestos is given in ACOPs L28 and L27.
ACOP L28 applies to work with asbestos insulation, asbestos coating and asbestos insulating board for which a license is required from the HSE. Any contractor who wants to carry out asbestos removal work has to be licensed by the HSE
Providing this information along with your location and access to the building will allow us to give you an instant quotation for removal & replacement if needed.
