Asbestos roofs are made out of a material called Asbestos cement. This material contains cement with approximately 15% Asbestos, which, when set, forms a hard corrugated material that is often used as roofing for garages, sheds, and industrial buildings. There are three types of Asbestos roofing; chrysotile, crocidolite, and amosite which are all dangerous to remove if you don't have the correct training.
