    Hi

    Just doing some internal renovation, and wondering could this be asbestos plasterboard ceiling? The extension is a 2 storey with a flat roof. The internal garage below the room had an asbestos ceiling (guessing for fire proofing), but we had this removed as part of the garage conversion a few years ago. The extension was built approx 1970.

    Please see link below, Thanks in advanced

    Its not the best of photos, but im just after first impressions from the photo as im not sure if its normal plasterboard or asbestos. I will be calling a pro at somepoint to get it checked.

    Is there anyway to tell other than lab testing?

    Hi woody. Thanks for the reply

    Is there any possibility the ceiling material could contain asbestos as it's a 1970s extension? Or does it look like asbestos insulation board?
    Thanks
