Asbestos Removal Melbourne

Asbestos Removal Melbourne is a highly regulated industry and only licenced practitioners can remove and dispose of asbestos. Asbestos is now known to be a very dangerous material and has been linked with causing lung disease, lung cancers and mesothelioma when the fibres are inhaled.

It is now illegal in Victoria to conduct repair work on an asbestos roof and there are heavy penalties for homeowners and contractors that attempt to do so. Usually the only option moving forward with an asbestos roof is the complete removal of all asbestos and the installation of a new roof replacement.



There are strict rules for Asbestos Removal and Asbestos Disposal:

  • The removalist must have a valid license
  • The removalist must have a valid permit for your specific project.
  • The removals must have the correct vehicle and permits to transport the Asbestos
  • The Asbestos must go to a landfill that is licensed to receive Asbestos
  • Your neighbours must be informed of your asbestos removal project.
  • A Clearance certificate must be insured at the completion of the project.


It is very important that when a home owner engages with an asbestos removal company or roofing company that all these rules are met. The home owner is the principle contractor which means they can often be left suffering the penalties of cowboys that cut corners. It’s just not worth the risk.

What should you do it your roof is asbestos?

Firstly, you should get your roof inspected by a professional. If your roof is aged and damaged, you could already be at risk of inhaling asbestos fibres. Once you have determined your current risk you can create a plan to replace the roof.
