If you don’t find your question answered here, then feel free to contact one of our advisors to gather more information. 

You have to have a licence to remove and dispose of asbestos safely. We have certified in-house installers which can remove your asbestos garage roof, with the right equipment to remove and dispose of it to health and safety standards. 

When deciding whether you need a complete garage roof replacement or a repair you should consider the extent of the damage and the age of the roof. Is the damage is bad, or the roof is old, then a replacement is probably the right route to go.

Which material is right for you will depend on your budget and your personal preferences, there is no right answer. At VSF we create tailored cost-efficient solutions for our customers, so we choose materials according to our customers needs. 

New garages will vary in cost depending on several factors, including the materials chosen and whether the concrete base needed replacing. Speak to one of our advisors to learn more and get a quote for your personalised new garage design. 

The same goes for garage refurbishment and garage roof replacements. 

In general, you don't need planning permission for a new garages. There is a couple of conditions for this though, including the garages being less than 4 metres high, and taking up less than half the properties available land. 

Not at all. The VSF installers are all certified in the safe removal and disposal of asbestos. They will take all necessary precautions to ensure that you, your community and our installers are shielded from the negative health benefits of asbestos. 

Properties built before 1999, which is 90% of the UK housing stock, could have asbestos garage roofs. You can buy tests to check if it is an asbestos garage roof, however our installers will treat all roofs that are potentially asbestos as asbestos. The phase better safe than sorry comes to mind.
