Asbestos has been declared a dangerous product with reference to human health almost two decades back. This is why its usage in the construction industry has been outrightly banned all over the Western hemisphere, with the product being stringently regulated in the few countries that are yet to ban the product.
While it is certainly possible to commence removal activities on your own, however, it is advisable not to do so since there are many contractors and other skilled and experienced professionals who have been duly licensed by the relevant authorities to ensure that the task is executed satisfactorily and in full compliance with all existing laws, rules and regulations.

In fact, hiring the services of the true experts who have specialised in such removals should not be a very expensive proposition, especially if you vector in the fact that the overall health of both you and your family (not to mention the immediate environment) would be at risk should you undertake this arduous exercise on your own and fail to comply with all the SOPs that should be implemented when undertaking such a potentially hazardous job, on your very own.
There is another reason to hire professionals for the job. Remember that it is not just roofing sheets alone that require removal. Before its ban, Asbestos was used in a wide array of construction-related activities that are considered virtually indispensable to any modern home and include the following:
- Gutters and Pipes
- Insulation: These may the attic boards, cavity walls, septic and water tanks etc.
- Walls: Being used as a strengthening agent in cement constructions
- Flooring: Including tiles and panels
To effectively eliminate all such potentially hazardous sources of contamination on your own is a very tall order indeed and that is why it makes it all the more imperative that you hire professionals who will be able to both identify and subsequently remove all the various different types of Asbestos waste materials from your home, office or any other property where you tend to spend your time.

However, it is an estimated guess at best, because the sizes of different garages as well as the complexity of the operation also help determine the final costs. And a ballpark figure would be somewhere around 450 to 2000 pounds or so, depending on project details as well as the skill and competence level (not to forget the experience) of the individuals that you may have hired to execute this job.
Ultimately, costs may be relative, but not when compared to the health of your family and neighbours. This is why it is deemed imperative that you hire licensed and qualified people for the job of Asbestos roofing sheets removal from your garage, irrespective of the costs.
