    I have used Kowhai Quality Coatings 3 times and have found them to be efficient and reasonably priced.

    0800 KOWHAI (0800 569 424)

    Agree with GBJ8 try Kowhai, I got a quote from them last year which was reasonbly priced but they were too busy to do the work for me. You may have to book 6 weeks in advance considering the time of year.

    Could you tell me how much kowhai quoted for u guys? i got a quote from one company $30 per sqrm, includes remove, plastering and painting. And should all the contractors who can remove asbestos be certified? i am scare that if somebody did a BAD job, the house is like been poisoned.

    Default Price

    Sounds cheap - you are responsible for whoever carries out the work and yes they should be certified for asbestos work, check their credentials and DONT take shortcuts.

    Send a small sample of to a lab to prove it is in fact asbestos. I've done it for a cost of ninety dollars, saved myself thousands. Not every old textured ceiling is asbestos.

    Hound,

    Thanks for a sensible tip. Which Lab did you send sample to?
