Why Replace Your Asbestos Roof & Roof Sheeting?
The danger of having asbestos roofing is that if the roofing structure is somehow compromised the asbestos dust particles can and will be released into the air and be breathed in by the occupants and visitors to the property. Asbestos is known to be toxic and inhalation can lead to serious life-threatening illnesses including mesothelioma, lung cancer, and asbestosis.
Asbestos Roofing Removal – Don’t Leave It To Chance
Once your property has been tested, and the tests confirm the presence of asbestos in your roof sheeting, don’t take a risk by doing it yourself, or by getting a contractor without the required licenses to carry out the asbestos roofing removal for you.
On all asbestos roof sheeting removal jobs, we ensure that the risk of fall hazards for workers is managed, as we have that awareness around asbestos cement and how it can become brittle with age.
Due to the potential for damage to the asbestos cement which in turn can cause fibre release, we ensure that angle grinders are not used. We avoid damage to the sheeting by using an oxy torch or another similar and suitable tools to remove anchoring screws, fixings, and bolts.
Where walking on the roof to remove roof sheeting is unavoidable, prior to removal we spray the asbestos sheets with a PVA solution, waiting for it to dry first before the removal to ensure that it is not a slip hazard. After removal, we spray the underside of the asbestos cement with the same PVA solution or with water.
When lowering the removed asbestos roof sheeting to the ground, we take all necessary precautions to keep asbestos dust and to a minimum.
We use a full decontamination unit if the area to be removed is larger than the size of a typical house or where we think that substantial dust will be loosened. When we have completed the work we ensure that a clearance certificate has been issued before anyone reoccupies the area.
Protect Your Family By Hiring A Licensed Professional To Remove Your Asbestos Roof.
The licensed, professional and experienced team at B&C Asbestos Removals take all the necessary precautions such as:
- Spraying the roof with PVA glue before any work commences – this encapsulates the fibres and minimises the number of fibres that will be “stirred up” when the roof is removed.
- After removing sheets, wrapping them in Builders plastic and taping up each pack.
All packs of wrapped up sheets removed from the site (on a truck which then takes the asbestos away to an asbestos waste disposal depot).
- Suits, masks, gloves and shoe covers are worn for our safety.
- Your front yard will be “cordoned” off and a sign stating that it is an asbestos work site will be erected at the front to warn passers-by.
- Your ceiling will be vacuumed to remove any fibres from your ceiling cavity.
- After removal, your yard will be scoured and any asbestos debris will be removed.
