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.
