In addition to improving safety for users and people who live near the building, asbestos removal for individuals and companies also has the advantage of government incentives.
It is in fact possible to achieve savings equal to 65% of the costs incurred staggered over ten years if, by introducing an appropriate thermal insulation which contributes to energy savings in the heating and cooling of the building, it improves the energy efficiency rating of the building. Savings equal to 50% of the costs incurred are available for building renovations.
As compared to encapsulation and over coverage, removal has the advantage of permanently restoring the building thus increasing its value.
The cost of the removal and disposal of asbestos should be carefully considered in comparison to the other two solutions which, although initially less expensive, involve subsequent additional monitoring costs and, in the case of encapsulation, re-roofing costs.
