When Should You Replace Your Asbestos Garage Roof?
Asbestos Garage Roofs Pose The Greatest Risk When They Are Damaged.
You should consider replacing your Asbestos garage roof when your Asbestos panels have begun to deteriorate or show signs of damage such as splits or cracks.
Living With A Damaged Asbestos Garage Roof
Understand The Risk
When damaged Asbestos garage roofs can release dangerous fibres into the air, try to avoid disturbing your garage roof wherever possible. Face masks can be purchased from your local hardware superstore.
The Vacuum Effect
Opening your garage door or personal access door too fast can create a rapid change in air pressure within your garage which creates a vacuum effect circulating Asbestos fibres into the air. Where possible wait for the air to settle before entering your garage.
Take Care When Moving Contents
Concrete garages rely on the garage roof to provide rigidity therefore any vibrations in the garage structure will disturb the Asbestos roof panels, avoid banging contents around or leaning heavy contents against the garage walls.
When To Avoid Using Your Garage
You should refrain from using your garage during bad weather such as high winds or storms, as with the vacuum effect the circulation of Asbestos fibres will be increased during these periods.
Having Your Asbestos Garage Roof Replaced
Damaged or not, having an Asbestos garage roof places restrictions on the functionality of your garage. The associated health risks prevent using your garage as a usable space such as a workshop or gym but the real damage is from the release of Asbestos fibres which can contaminate the contents of your garage preventing the storage of sentimental and financially valuable items. Although harder surface items can be cleaned, penetration of soft materials and fabrics can leave items dangerous and unusable.
