Why would an Asbestos roof need to be replaced?
Asbestos was installed in many industrial and non-commercial buildings during the 1950’s through to the late 1990’s due to its fire resistance, soundproofing, durability and low costs. However, 60 years on we now know that there is a health risk to materials that contain Asbestos. This is the first reason to replace your Asbestos roof. You might find that if you need to do work on your roofs, such as installing guttering or lighting, many companies won't want to work on your roof because of these health risks. Replacing your Asbestos roof will save you a lot of trouble in the future.
Another obvious reason to replace your Asbestos roof is if it is damaged. Damaged Asbestos roofs lead to leaks that can further damage the interior of your property. This, in itself, can be a costly job. However, there is a larger risk to damaged Asbestos roofs. There is an increased risk to your health if the roof is damaged and small particles that become airborne are easily inhaled. By replacing your damaged Asbestos roof you can alleviate this risk altogether.
What should I replace my Asbestos roof with?
This is a good question. There are plenty of materials to choose from, each with its own benefit. Steel Cladding is the most inexpensive option and the quickest to install. It’s ideal for sloping roofs. So if you have a large roof that needs to be covered quickly then this could be the option for you. Also, they are coated with PVC Plastisol or Polyester paint, they come in a great range of colours, so will suit almost any building.
