Air ducts

I'm purchasing a home that has asbestos on the air ducts in the basement, I got a quote for them to remove and contain the asbestos. I'm having about 60-70 feet of air ducts removed so my question is, should I have new air ducts installed by professionals or is this a project a DIYer can complete? And what's the cost of a professional to install new air ducts?

If the asbestos is 100% gone, and you know how to replace the duct , then there's no good reason you can't do it yourself. It's hard to say how much it would cost to replace. Might be $2000 for a small bungalow(to completely replace) and upwards from there for a bigger house, two floors, etc. I actually have no idea on the price though because I've never really gotten it done but likely will have to soon.

It varies per contractor and it varies if you are going with flex duct, either R-6 or R-8 insulation, or hard metal duct.

$300 per individual duct run is the average, flex R-6. $325 R-8.
