One of the biggest worries for many homeowners is how you can replace or remove an asbestos roof safely and affordably. Due to the health risks associated with removing asbestos, we recommend you commission a licensed professional.

Many roofs built before 1999 may contain asbestos. This may be in the form of asbestos cement or asbestos roof tiles. Asbestos cement is a mixture of cement and asbestos. This is usually about 10-15% of the total product, forming a hard material. This cement is often found in corrugated asbestos roofing on sheds, garages and other domestic outbuildings.
Asbestos roofing is not considered a risk if left undisturbed. However, if disturbed, such as during the removal process, it can pose a serious health risk.
In many cases, it is legal for homeowners to remove asbestos by themselves. However, there are some restrictions. Contact us today if you are unsure whether you need a licensed contractor.
