Patio, Carports, & Deck Installer in Queensland
There are just too many different sizes and combinations of materials to cover here in one page. The space of everyone's area is always different. Different size, different dimensions and different shapes. Having a custom made solution is almost always necessary. Color matching is important as often you won't want this structure dominating, but instead being subtly present in the background.

FREQUENTLY asked questions
It is a group of naturally occurring minerals, mined from deep underground. There are three main types that were used in Australia, Chrysotile (white), Crocidolite (blue), and Amosite (brown or grey).
Asbestos was an extremely popular building material prior to the 1990’s. Since then the use of asbestos has been banned after it was found to cause serious health problems to humans if exposed to airborne particles.
It is safe if you take the necessary precautions and use the proper equipment when doing so. Our staff use full body suits with ventilators to protect themselves from any particles coming in contact with their body. It’s also important to use safe procedures during the removal process to make sure you don’t encourage the fibres to become airborne where they can endanger humans.
Our main goal is to offer safe asbestos removal at a reasonable price. The price is a direct reflection of:
- how much of the material is present – typically measured in m2
- location of the asbestos within the structure and
- ease of access into the property itself
- the nature of the replacement material
- whether it’s an entire roof or just supporting structural areas (eves, walls etc).
The above factors determine the amount of time we must spend and the amount of equipment required. This is reflected in the overall cost to you. We only use fully qualified asbestos removalists. To get an accurate estimate for the cost of asbestos removal we really need you to contact us first, so we can provide a customised quote for your individual situation. Costs vary from job to job significantly
We use a licenced asbestos transporter who disposes of the material at the closest registered waste facility/tip. After asbestos removal we NEVER dispose of asbestos improperly or illegally.
As a precaution, we ask all residents to vacate during asbestos removal. This is usually from early morning to mid-afternoon and allows enough time for removal, vacuuming, spray sealing and an independent inspection.
If you are employing a fully qualified, licenced asbestos removalist such as us, you are not required to notify any authorities as this will be done by the removalist. We notify QLD Workplace Health & Safety prior to removal and we may also notify Energex if we are working close to their infrastructure on your behalf.

Most structures will need building approval but it depends on the type and size of the structure and what it will be used for. We will determine upon site visit if a building approval is necessary and, if so, we will include this in your quote.
The timeframe depends on several factors including engineering, building approval, manufacturing, current scheduling and weather conditions. We advise to allow at least 4 weeks from sign-up to commencement of building.
