Living With a Damaged Asbestos Garage Roof:

Understand the Risk

When damaged, asbestos garage roofs release dangerous fibres into the air. Avoid disturbing your garage roof whenever 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. This causes a ‘vacuum effect’ – circulating harmful asbestos fibres into the air. Where possible, wait for the air to settle before entering your garage.

Take Care When Moving Contents

Concrete garages depend on a sturdy garage roof to provide rigidity. Any vibrations in the garage structure will disturb the asbestos roof panels, releasing its dangerous fibres. Avoid banging contents around or leaning heavy objects against the garage walls.

When to Avoid Using Your Garage

Refrain from using your garage during bad weather such as high winds or storms. Bad weather amplifies the vacuum effect and the circulation of asbestos fibres inside your garage.

How Dangerous is an Asbestos Garage Roof?

Asbestos in any form poses a health risk, including the type of asbestos found in your garage roof. Although it has a lower risk potential than other asbestos types, it is important your garage roof remains undisturbed.

What is Asbestos?

Asbestos is the name given to a group of naturally occurring silicate minerals.  Asbestos has been mined worldwide on an industrial scale since the late 19th Century. It was used in thousands of applications across the construction industry in the UK.

What are the Different Types of Asbestos?

There are three common types of asbestos found in construction. Each have their own characteristics and pose various levels of risk:

  • Chrysotile (White), Serpentine
  • Amosite (Brown), Amphibole
  • Crocidolite (Blue), Amphibole

These three asbestos types fall into two different categories of asbestos known as Serpentine and Amphibole.

The difference between the two categories is the type of fibres they release. Serpentine asbestos releases ‘curly fibres’ which, due to their shape, rarely penetrate lung tissue. Serpentine asbestos poses a much lower health risk in comparison to Amphibole fibres.

Amphibole asbestos types release ‘needle shaped’ fibres which burrow into the lung tissue easily. Even the briefest exposure can have serious consequences.

Why was Asbestos Used in Construction?

The UK government banned the use of asbestos in all forms in 1999. One of the main reasons it took so long to ban asbestos was the lack of an adequate substitute.

Asbestos is a light material yet incredibly strong. With superior resistances to weather conditions, high and low temperatures, fires, and chemicals, it is the perfect material for construction.

Asbestos minerals are also easily spun/molded into various shapes and formats for different applications at a very low cost.

What Type of Asbestos Does Your Garage Roof Contain?

An asbestos garage roof contains around 15% Chrysotile (White Asbestos). Unlike Amosite (Brown Asbestos) and Crocidolite (Blue Asbestos), which both release needle shaped fibres (Amphibole), Chrysotile fibres are curly shaped (Serpentine). This makes them less likely to penetrate the lung tissue.

Although the risks are lower than its counterparts, the Chrysotile in your asbestos garage roof should not be underestimated.

What can I do About my Asbestos Garage Roof?

 Once an asbestos garage roof panel has failed, unfortunately you don’t have many options.

If the damage is minor, you can purchase a specialist paint to provide a temporary barrier. However, this has a very short life span and doesn’t provide a long term solution to your garage roof problem.


The best thing you can do is replace the asbestos garage roof quickly so you can get back to using your garage as normal.
