Asbestos Roof Replacement

Asbestos Roof Replacement

Identifying asbestos

Asbestos cement sheets were widely used in the construction of garage roofs and can still be found in many different buildings built before 1999. Asbestos roof removal requires a professional service to ensure that it is carried out safely. We provide a full asbestos cement sheet removal and re-roofing service and we are licensed to safely remove and dispose of asbestos cement materials. We adhere to strict procedures when carrying out work of this type. Whenever there is any doubt about whether asbestos is present in the garage roof sheets we sample and arrange for testing.

Asbestos Garage Roof Replacement in Scotland

Asbestos cement options

We recommend removal and replacement of asbestos cement roof sheets on your garage rather than over cladding or over painting. We do not recommend over cladding your garage roof as it involves fixing through the old asbestos cement garage roof sheeting in order for the new roof sheets to remain secure during storms. This involves drilling the old asbestos cement roof sheets which is not recommended due to potential contamination of the interior of your garage. We do not recommend over painting your garage roof sheets as this involves preparation by scraping down the old asbestos roof sheets on your garage which releases asbestos fibres, it seldom works and increases condensation.

We will visit your site and provide a fully detailed fixed price quotation to include the following:  Careful removal of the old asbestos cement garage roof sheets in accordance with the HSE recommendations, removal and replacement of any defective garage roof support beams, re covering the roof with new roof sheets of your choice and a thorough clean up to remove any asbestos contamination all in accordance with the HSE recommendations. We can also offer other options such as converting your flat roofed garage to a pitched roof with lots of choices of roof finish from sheets to tiles or slates.
