Asbestos Containing Materials (ACMs)

Asbestos has been common in buildings since the mid-19th century and was used extensively until its eventual ban in 1999. Over this period, it is estimated that over 3000 different products were manufactured containing asbestos fibres. Importation of asbestos to the UK between 1940 and 1998 exceeded 5 million tonnes.

Client Testimonials

  • I had a asbestos survey carried out recently on my brother in laws pre fab for his and his families peace of mind. I was totally unaware of what to expect, but I need not have worried as Stone Asbestos was helpful, approachable and patient, always ready to answer and explain any questions or queries. Their report was thorough and was understandable with plenty of pictures to accompany the narrative. Any questions that came to mind after the report had been sent were answered with an easy to understand explanation and advice. All in all a worry free experience. Thank you Stone Asbestos.
