  1. Great video. We are now subscribed to your channel. Thanks
  2. Great channel and video mate. We are currently (As I type this) getting approx. 110sqm taken off a shack out the back of our house. Liked and Subbed!
  3. Solid video, we often send customers to various youtube videos to help educate them on the dangers and precautions that should be used when dealing with asbestos. We recently wrote an article on friable and non friable asbestos should anyone be interested in having a read > thanks for sharing we are now subscribed to your channel.
  4. What city are you in?
  5. Haha! This was like watching a comedy skit. I understand the law is the law, but the overkill on the removal of home building materials containing asbestos is beyond ridiculous. Those laws were obviously crafted by people that have no clue about the transfer of asbestos fibers to the environment. Gotta do whatcha gotta do to please the government, but oy vey!
  6. Thank you for making this video. My partner and I bought our first home late last year and it's a 1930s house that most likely has asbestos in in.
    We are planning a kitchen Reno because we only have a wood oven at the moment so this video will come in very handy. Cheers from a fellow Aussie. :)
  7. gr8 video, just one question is it ok to handle like this without gloves?
  8. I enjoyed your asbestos ep. Interesting.
    My Uncle died of asbestos poisoning and my cousin has it.
    It reassuring to know it's done properly now.
  9. Meatasaurus I like it :)
  10. Thanks for the Video Shane, nasty stuff that Asbestos. Well done to the fellers who took that load out of your house but tell em eye protection and gloves, you have to be careful with that stuff, one slight mishap and you could be in trouble for the rest of your life.
    Cheers mate,

    Barry from England.
  11. Merry, merry king of the bush is he !
  12. well deserved like for the kookaburras!
  13. All that safety stuff... but no gloves? When the high school I was attending was getting asbestos panels removed, the workers were covered from head to toe including full face masks.
  14. I find it hard to believe that you need a "professional" wearing a hazmat suit to remove one piece of material.  It is not like fibers are going to be blowing around.  If you can live with this material then you can remove the material.
  15. Great information - helps one to understand both the process and why it's so expensive. Looking forward to seeing your next installment!
  16. good vid mate, haven't had much to with asbestos myself, but  ive always reckoned the laws on asbestos cleanup is overkill, but I guess if its someone's career and they handle it all the time it's better to be safe than  sorry eh :)
  17. Great video Shane - useful info.

    I have always wondered about your "overalls" Shane, they seem to be a kind of variation on the old bib and brace - what are they called?
  18. Very interesting, Shane.
