Asbestos was a common building product used in the 1960s and 1970s, due to its fire resistant and insulation properties but the dangers of this material are well documented. Asbestos roofs are used on buildings such as garages and in many industrial applications, but extreme care has to be taken when attempting any type of repair or replacement to avoid disturbing the material which can result in harmful fibres being released.
Although roofs have quite a low asbestos content, caution still needs to be taken when repairing this type of roof. When it is exposed to prolonged periods of weathering the material can start to deteriorate which can result in asbestos fibres being released from the roof sheet. Asbestos roof repair or replacement is the best option and it is important that you only used an approved asbestos contractor such as ourselves to undertake this type of work.
