About us

Welcome to A4 Asbestos

A4 Asbestos can help with any concern, query or inquiry you have about asbestos. We are leading specialists in asbestos sampling, asbestos surveys and asbestos removal & collection. We work throughout the South West and have many satisfied customers.

There are millions of buildings in the UK that contain asbestos fibres which if disturbed or damaged and subsequently inhaled can lead to serious lung diseases. Asbestos has the potential to cause life-threatening conditions through prolonged exposure which is what makes it so dangerous. Without sample testing in an independent laboratory, it is impossible to determine whether asbestos is present.

If asbestos-containing material is damaged, fibres from the asbestos can be released into the atmosphere which makes it into the air-bourne risk that we’re afraid of. Asbestos materials do not pose a hazard providing they are not damaged. The problem with asbestos is that a lot of the materials containing it were created/used before 1980, meaning that several decades’ worth of degradation have occurred, making the risk of asbestos our generation’s problem.

At A4 Asbestos, we have been providing asbestos services to both domestic and commercial clients across Bristol and surrounding areas for many years. We offer asbestos surveys to assess whether your property needs asbestos removal. If you may have asbestos at your property in Bristol, contact our team at 0117 453 9112 today to speak with one of our specialists.

Asbestos information

Is asbestos dangerous?

Extended exposure is the true hazard when it comes to asbestos since the illnesses & conditions it can cause take years to develop. The problem is that asbestos os nearly undetectable without professional equipment & tests which the majority of the UK’s population doesn’t have access to. This, in turn, makes asbestos some into a silent threat, as it you won’t know or feel the damage that’s caused until it’s too late.

If you are considering refurbishment or demolition works to any property, a refurbishment and demolition survey is strongly recommended to identify whether asbestos is present, prior to works commencing. In the case of non-domestic buildings, this is a statutory requirement. If works are undertaken without a survey, asbestos fibres may be released unknowingly. Tradesmen working on a property may find suspicious materials and refuse to continue until the material has been sampled and analysed, thereby causing delay and additional cost. This can affect both residential & commercial properties as asbestos can affect a range of buildings due to its abundant use in the ’70s & ’80s.

Featured projects

We’re back to removing entire garages again! Today’s job was in Bristol, a metal frame garage with asbestos cement roof and wall sheets.

The garage was demolished to concrete slab level and all materials were removed from the site.

Today we removed the tiles from a roof of a property in Wiltshire. Looking at the photos, people may not be aware that these types of artificial ‘slates’ often contain asbestos.

We removed asbestos cement panels from a garden shed in Bristol today. The sheets were made by Eternit in Belgium and are known to contain asbestos.

A couple of photos for today’s job which was to remove an asbestos cement soil pipe from the rear of a house in Bristol.

Photos attached for today’s job, the removal of a steel framed single garage with asbestos cement roof and walls. We removed the entire garage, including the timber doors, to concrete slab level.

Around 30 years ago a landowner purchased a large amount of second hand asbestos cement roof sheets, when it was still legal to do so. He erected three buildings on his land and the remainder was left in a pile. Roll forward 30 years and the landowner is selling, his purchaser requires removal of the excess asbestos sheets. A4 Asbestos was engaged to carry out the removal. There are a round 30 tonnes of asbestos containing material stacked on timber pallets. We arranged delivery of three RoRo skips, each capable of holding up to 15 tonnes and used a JCB to carefully deposit the sheets in the skips.
