Asbestos In Your Home: The Ultimate Renovators Guide

NOTE: Since this video was produced, in accordance with revised information supplied by the Asbestos Safety and Eradication Agency (A.S.E.A), the year of residential asbestos usage has been extended from 1987 to 1990.

Asbestos was widely used in the manufacture of building materials and other products prior to being phased out by 1990 and banned in 2003. Therefore:

  • If your home was built or renovated prior to 1987 it is ‘highly likely’ that it contains products incorporating asbestos.
  • If your home was built or renovated between 1987 and 1990 it is ‘likely’ that it may contain some asbestos-containing materials.
  • However, if your home was built or renovated after 1990 it is ‘unlikely’ that asbestos-containing materials will be present.
