    .....Hi there,

    Can anyone give me a ball-park figure for the weight of corrugated asbestos roofing?

    I've been quoted a figure to remove and dispose of my (average sized) garage's asbestos roof, but it's quoted "per ton". I've done a quick search to see if I can get an idea of corrugated asbestos' density but no luck so far.

    Any input is gratefully received,

    Matt

    Cheers for the replies.

    I'd better check whether there's a minimum charge now then.....

    Thanks again,

    The contractors which we use, all use a m2 rate for roof removal
