Stuart carried out a refurbishment survey for a house we purchased. He gave great advice over the phone and in person, explained the whole process, and even popped back after the survey to confirm one extra question. We now know what we're dealing with and have clear next steps to deal with the asbestos that was found. Highly recommend.
I decided to fix a damaged wall and during the process I suspected there could be Asbestos present. I then emailed Forth Asbestos late on a Thursday night and was answered straight away. Stuart came over the next morning, collected the samples and delivered the results in the afternoon on the same day. He was extremely helpful and gave me recommendations on what to do throughout the whole process. I strongly recommend!
