Are you looking for advice on asbestos?

A new guide on asbestos from the GGF provides helpful advice about the correct way of dealing with it if found in your home


If poorly managed, asbestos removal can leave householders and those removing asbestos materials with serious health problems

For this reason the Glass and Glazing Federation (GGF) has launched Asbestos, a new consumer guide that helps homeowners understand the dangers of asbestos and the importance of ensuring it is removed professionally and safely.

Included in the guide are basic facts about asbestos, information about the risks and correct procedures of dealing with the material, and links for further reading.

If you suspect asbestos is present in your home and work is being carried out that could disturb it, the GGF recommends you seek advice from a competent assessor.

Though the GGF cannot be directly responsible for promoting or authorising the work of individual assessors, it does recommend that property owners discuss the matter with their window, door or conservatory installation company.
