Asbestos roof removal for Brisbane & the Sunshine Coast
Asbestos is common in and under sheet roofs on older properties. Depending on the age of your property, the roofing materials used may contain asbestos, a leading cause of mesothelioma, asbestosis and lung cancer, which means the utmost care is required with its removal and disposal.
Many homes with asbestos roofing ultimately cause no harm, however they do carry a risk, as normal wear and tear can release asbestos fibres over time. Certainly following damage to the roof, whether from an accident, storm or natural disaster, significant amounts of potentially cancer-causing particles will likely released. It's far better to be safe than sorry.
Wherever you are located across the Sunshine Coast and Brisbane, The Roofing Group can check whether your roof or roof space contains asbestos and give advice about options available to you.
What is asbestos?
Asbestos is a naturally occurring mineral that contains strong fibers that have excellent durability, fire resistance and insulating properties. Asbestos fibres are often invisible to the naked eye, can float in the air for a long time and can be inhaled into the lungs. It is an extremely dangerous substance to inhale at any level.
In the past, asbestos was mined and used to make many different materials. Materials containing asbestos were very common in the Australian residential building industry between the 1940s and late 1980s, before their production stopped.
In terms of roofing materials, asbestos was most commonly used in cement sheeting. However, it can also be found in other roof sheeting, cement tiles, the lining under eaves and chimney flues.
