Asbestos Removal – Essential Roof Repairs
Asbestos was widely used for construction and roofing in Australia until the 1980s, being used for insulation and other key purposes. While it has since been banned, older buildings may still contain asbestos, which can cause a range of health risks if disturbed.
As part of your roof repairs, you should have your roof examined for asbestos and organise removal if necessary. There are three critical issues to consider for roof asbestos:
- The law: By law, asbestos must be removed by licensed contractors. This material is classified as a potentially major health hazard and any degree of exposure is considered dangerous. If asbestos is discovered in your home, it must be reported to your local authority and removal must be carried out.
- Location of all asbestos: It’s very important to ensure that all asbestos is removed. Depending on roof construction, asbestos may be present in places that aren’t visible. It’s necessary to check and have your roof thoroughly inspected for possible risks.
- Disposal: Asbestos disposal must be carried out in a safe way. Proper disposal includes containment of all materials in approved hazardous materials bags.
Why You Need an Expert Contractor for Roof Asbestos Removal
