I will at some point get it tested, hopefully it won't contain it also as I have said on one of my earlier posts the builder called LEECH homes not sure if you remember them? Has been out of buisness for a long time. Most websites claim it was banned in 1984 or 1990 so hopefully 5 years on from 1990 there would not be any old artex left surely? Really I would like to know if the garge roof contains asbestos it is just a slate roof. I have looked round and there is black sheets like a diamond shape is this Asbestos? Really homeowners are told little about Asbestos, these websites do freak me out and I am sure many others too. Considring my house was built exactly 4 years before the ban surely the builders would have had sense not to use it the health risks have actually been known since the 1980's and probably before that! Yet it was proabably used somewhere up to 1999.
