Pre-purchase Asbestos InspectionsWhat is the hidden cost of Asbestos in your new property — remove the worry with a TriEx Pre-Purchase Asbestos Inspection

Asbestos Containing Materials could be found in over half of New Zealand’s homes built prior to the year 2000.

Did you know that DIY activities at home contribute to a major cause of non-work related asbestos illnesses? This is important for you to be aware of as a potential purchaser. If your property has Asbestos Containing Materials, you need to be aware of the possible effect on your health if the asbestos is disturbed. There is also the potentially large costs associated with the remediation/removal.
