Why you have an Asbestos Garage Roof…

Due to its ability to withstand heat, erosion and decay as well as its excellent water resistant properties Asbestos was widely used in building materials until it was banned in all forms over a decade ago.

Asbestos is a generic name that is given to a group of fibrous silicate materials that occur naturally in the environment. It is the only naturally occurring mineral that can be spun and woven like cotton or wool into useful fibres and fabrics. Asbestos fibres are 50 to 200 times thinner than a human hair, they can float in the air for long periods time and if inhaled can cause serious health problems.

The type of Asbestos used in domestic garage roofing has a low risk potential so providing your garage roof hasn’t had the original panels replaced and there is no visible damage it is unlikely that the Asbestos used in your garage will pose any serious or imminent health risk.  This being said, we always recommend caution when dealing with Asbestos roofing panels so if your considering having your garage roof replaced we recommend that you seek professional assistance with any questions or concerns.

Disposing of an Asbestos Garage Roof

When undertaking an Asbestos garage roof replacement, the disposal of the removed Asbestos material is important.  Asbestos is a hazardous material and companies are required to carry a license for its transportation and disposal.  Danmarque Garages are licensed Waste Carriers, our operatives have been specifically trained to undertake safe removal and disposal of an Asbestos garage roof.
