Do you have asbestos in your roof?
Asbestos is commonly found as a material in the roofs of older commercial and industrial properties, and is also seen in garages and other residential buildings. The material was enormously popular for its insulation properties, but was made illegal to use in the UK in 1999 due to the health hazards associated with breathing the fibres into the lungs.
Unfortunately, many warehouses and industrial premises built before 1999 contain asbestos either in the form of panels or within the cement. This means that there are many premises in the South East that contain asbestos without their owner or manager necessarily being aware of the risks.
It is impossible to tell just by observing your roof whether it contains asbestos as many materials look similar but are not dangerous. Equally it may be the case that the asbestos has been mixed into cement. If you want to learn if you have an asbestos roof, you need to have a survey carried out.
How we work
At Crucial Environmental we specialise in the removal of asbestos roofs. The process is usually fairly straightforward. Asbestos panels are first dampened and then can be carefully removed as whole sheets. Corrugated sheets are double-wrapped and then sealed in heavy gauge polythene covering. They can then be placed in a locked or into a hazardous waste skip. Our team is highly experienced in all forms of asbestos removal.
