  1. Hi,

    we are looking at buying a house with Hardiplank on the outside but it was built in late 1989 in Taupo

    What are the chances of it containing asbestos in the cladding and is it necessary to get it tested and what are the risks involved if the cladding does contain it?

    Thanks
    Sam

      Hi there Sam,
      the chances of this weatherboard containing asbestos are relatively low given the year, however to be safe I would still get it tested. There is no way of knowing for sure 100% without testing. Hope that helps.
