Removing Asbestos Insulation From a Loft Costs: A Comprehensive Guide

The cost of removing asbestos insulation from a loft in the UK can vary based on several factors including the size of the loft, the extent of the asbestos contamination, accessibility, and regional differences.

Here’s a detailed breakdown:

Average Costs

  1. Total Removal Cost:

    • Small Loft (up to 50 square meters): £1,500 to £3,000
    • Medium Loft (50 to 100 square meters): £3,000 to £7,000
    • Large Loft (over 100 square meters): £7,000 to £15,000 or more

  2. Daily Cost:

    • The average daily cost for asbestos removal can range from £400 to £800 per day depending on the complexity and the number of workers required.

Labour Involved

  1. Number of Men:

    • Typically, a team of 2 to 4 trained and certified asbestos removal specialists is required. The exact number can vary depending on the size and complexity of the job.

  2. Labour Process:

    • Initial Inspection and Testing: An initial survey to confirm the presence of asbestos and assess the extent.
    • Preparation: Setting up containment areas, sealing off the loft, and establishing negative air pressure to prevent asbestos fibres from spreading.
    • Removal: Carefully removing the asbestos insulation, keeping it wet to minimize fibre release, and using hand tools for precise work.
    • Cleaning: Decontaminating the area with specialized vacuums and cleaning agents.
    • Final Inspection and Air Monitoring: Ensuring the area is safe for reoccupation.

Tools and Equipment

  1. Personal Protective Equipment (PPE):

    • Disposable coveralls
    • Respirators or full-face masks with P3 filters
    • Gloves and boots

  2. Containment Materials:

    • Polythene sheeting for creating sealed containment areas
    • Duct tape for sealing

  3. Removal Tools:

    • Hand tools like scrapers and knives
    • Low-speed, high-torque tools to minimize fibre release

  4. Cleaning Equipment:

    • H-type (HEPA) vacuum cleaners
    • Wet wiping materials

Disposal Fees

  1. Disposal of Asbestos Waste:
    • Asbestos waste needs to be double-bagged in special asbestos waste bags and labeled appropriately.
    • Disposal Costs: Can range from £50 to £200 per tonne. Total costs depend on the amount of asbestos waste generated.

Additional Considerations

  1. Permit and Licensing Fees:

    • Ensure that the contractor holds the necessary licenses for asbestos removal.
    • Permit fees can vary depending on local regulations.

  2. Post-Removal Air Testing:

    • Air testing and clearance certification typically cost between £200 and £500.

Summary

For an average loft in the UK, the total cost for asbestos insulation removal is likely to range from £3,000 to £10,000, considering all factors such as labour, tools, equipment, and disposal fees. The daily cost averages around £400 to £800, with a team of 2 to 4 workers typically required. For a precise estimate, it is recommended to get quotes from several certified asbestos removal contractors who can assess the specific conditions of your loft.

I highly recommend these guys who recently helped us clear and clean out our loft in Newcastle after we had rodents in. They removed old junk and the old insulation then cleaned up the rodent droppings and hoovered the loft out. They were very friendly, made sure no dust and dirt got into our home and cleaned up after themselves. We are elderly people so we couldn't do this but they did everything in half a day. We tried all over to get someone to do the works for us but these guys were the only ones to come out and give us a qoute. Would use again if we ever have another rodent problem.

We used this company a couple of days ago and are really impressed with the overall service provided. The lads were here almost 4 and a half hours completely clearing the loft and cleaning it afterwards. They used coverings on the stairs and landing to keep the carpet clean. Our loft looks like a new loft now and we didn't realise just how big it is with all the rubbish removed. Great set of lads, would highly recommend this company. 👍

Fantastic service by the team of lads that came to remove my old insulation. They also removed old wood that was there at a very reasonable price and made sure there was no mess. Turned up when they said they would, very polite and professional. Would definitely recommend.
