QUESTION: Is there a contractor in Victoria who performs the service of removing old insulation from a roof? - 25 Mar 2007 Victoria, Australia

Can you please advise if there is anyone in Victoria who performs the service of removing old insulation from a roof. We are doing a renovation and have been advised by our builder that they are not going to remove the old insulation in the areas where the old ceilings are remaining intact.

Would be grateful if you could advise ASAP as we are wanting to get this done prior to the roof and new plaster walls going on - probably in the next week according to the builder !!!


ANSWER: 26 Mar 2007

Dear Annette,

Only one ceiling dust removal company has been approved so far for membership of the Australian Dust Removalists Association (ADRA). That company is Ceiling Alert and their contact phone number is mobile 0438 643 513. All the members of ADRA in NSW will remove insulation (although the Association was set up to remove ceiling dust and insulation is just something that people often want removed along with the ceiling dust) and they will all install new thermal insulation as well, if required. We recommend that you only employ an ADRA member if you have dust in your ceiling that needs to be removed. So try asking Ceiling Alert if they will remove your old insulation (although other companies may also carry out this work - companies we have no information about because they have nothing to do with lead).

Yours Sincerely
Elizabeth O’Brien
