How can you tell if you have an asbestos garage roof?
Asbestos garage roofs are made of a compound of asbestos and cement fibres, which makes it quite difficult to tell as they look similar to concrete garage roofs. Asbestos was used in buildings up to 1999, which means it could be in roughly 90% of UK homes. That’s why we follow a general rule of treating any roof that appears to match the criteria of asbestos, as asbestos.
What precautions are taken when we remove your asbestos garage roof?
VSF take your safety seriously, which is why we take measures to ensure that any removal of asbestos garage roof’s is done to UK health and safety standards. This keeps you, our workers and the environment safe.
Frequently Asked Asbestos Questions
Find the answers to commonly asked questions regarding asbestos garage roofs and also how VSF can help you safely remove and dispose of your old Asbestos Garage Roof.
Asbestos is a naturally occurring material that was widely used in buildings until its outlawing in 1999. It can be very harmful if breathed in, causing scarring of the lungs. That's why all our installers are trained in the safe disposal, to keep both you and themselves safe.
Removing an asbestos garage roof yourself isn't recommended. You can put yourself, your family and your neighbours at risk, not to mention putting yourself at risk of a fine if the removal or disposal isn't done to health and safety standards.
At VSF we have a specialised vehicle which allows for the safe transportation of the asbestos to a licensed disposal site. We will then provide you with a certificate verifying it has been safely disposed of.
Here at VSF we only offer the safe disposal of the old roof, along with the installation of our Plasticol Coated Galvanized Steel Roofing Sheets. Many customers don’t want to replace the roof due to cost, however we guarantee all our work for 10 years and therefore don’t want to carry out short term solutions. Repair work such as patching the roof or applying a paint coating are short term solutions that don’t solve the problem
