Corrugated Asbestos Roof Sheeting
If you are concerned of what to do once your old corrugated sheeted roof is defective and starts to deteriorate. A1MAZING Roofing Services Ltd recommends removing the asbestos roof sheets and replacing with Plastic Coated Steel Box Profile Sheeting.
Multi Coloured Plastic Coated Steel Box Profile Sheets are the ideal choice when replacing an asbestos roof. A1MAZING Roofing Services Ltd will arrange for the asbestos to be removed in accordance with correct statutory regulations and by following a code of strict Health and Safety Executive Guidance Notes. We inspect the roof to ensure the timber structure is sound prior to installation. The Galvanised Steel Sheets are Plastic coated and come in a selection of colours; they are adhered with the use of 8mm Hexi bolts. Insulation and additional lighting in the form of dome roof lights or grp sheeting are further options to consider depending on the building use
If your roof is made from Asbestos Cement a special Asbestos licence is not needed to remove it. A1MAZING Roofing Services Ltd is highly experienced in handling the product and is therefore fully aware and follow carefully the strict guidelines laid down in accordance with the HSE. We ensure that all operatives comply and use the correct PPE to remove and dispose of the product correctly. A specialist licensed ASBESTOS contractor is ONLY needed to work on High Risk Asbestos such as pipe insulation or insulation panels – NOT on Asbestos cement which is much less dangerous.
How Can You Tell If It Is Asbestos Cement?
Asbestos cement is a mixture of cement and asbestos (usually about 10-15% of the total product) forming a hard material often used as corrugated roofing on sheds.garages, farm buildings and industrial units. Asbestos cement usually contained white asbestos (chrysotile) but older types may contain blue (crocidolite) or brown (amosite). The type used is not really important as all asbestos is hazardous, although asbestos cement does not release many fibres and is relatively low risk. It is sometimes difficult to tell the difference between an asbestos cement product and a low-density insulation board. Where the product has been used as a roofing or cladding product open to the weather, you can be confident that the product is asbestos cement. Don’t take any chances, make sure you use a reputable and safe contractor like A1MAZING Roofing Services Ltd to remove all your defective corrugated sheets.
