Asbestos Roof Removal Service

Our asbestos roof removal service involves safely removing and disposing of roofing materials that contain asbestos fibres. Construction companies often used asbestos roofing materials, especially on sheds and garages. These materials, such as corrugated sheets and tiles, were popular with homeowners until the 1990s when health authorities confirmed asbestos to be dangerous. However, many older buildings still have asbestos roofs today.

The Health Risks of Asbestos Roofs

When asbestos-containing roofs are in good condition and not damaged, they are unlikely to be a health risk. However, asbestos fibres can be a significant health hazard if the roofing is decaying or damaged.

Asbestos Roofing Removal Procedure

Taking down an asbestos roof involves several steps to guarantee the effective, safe removal of the asbestos materials. First, we send a qualified surveyor to review the roofing to decide whether it contains asbestos.

If the roofing has asbestos, our qualified removal team will take it down and dispose of the asbestos-containing materials (ACMs) accordingly.

We carefully remove the roof with tools and techniques that minimise the spread of asbestos fibres.

The removed roofing is placed in asbestos waste bags and taken to a hazardous waste facility.

Specialists in Asbestos Roof Removal

Homeowners should refrain from performing asbestos removal as it is a hazardous task requiring expertise and professional equipment.

Unqualified persons may disturb asbestos materials and release the fibres into the air. At AJC, we use specialised equipment to remove the slates and safely dispose of them in a hazardous waste facility.

Because asbestos fibres are so tiny, people rarely realise they have inhaled asbestos until it is too late. Diseases caused by breathing in asbestos fibres include mesothelioma, a cancer almost always caused by breathing in the fibres, lung cancer, asbestosis, pleural thickening, and laryngeal cancer.

Even builders and roofers may not know if roofing materials contain asbestos unless they have completed asbestos awareness training. It is better to be safe than sorry, and we recommend an asbestos survey and sampling analysis before beginning work on an older roof.

Asbestos Roof Tile Removal

Like corrugated or flat asbestos sheeting, asbestos roof tiles were also popular for roofing until the 1999 ban. Before the UK banned asbestos, manufacturers added it to shingles, tiles, and felting. Asbestos was considered extremely useful in the building trade, because it is durable, and fire-resistant.

If you have asbestos roof tiles on your property, we advise you to arrange a professional inspection to determine if they are or are likely to become a health hazard. If it’s decided the tiles should be removed, you need to look no further than AJC Environmental.

When you hire us for asbestos roof tile removal, we safely remove and dispose of the tiles made with asbestos.

Asbestos Roof Survey Prior to Removal

Before work begins, we conduct an asbestos survey to determine whether ACMs are in the roofing. This survey identifies potential hazards and gives us vital information on safely removing and disposing of asbestos-containing slates or sheets. After receiving the results of the tests, which should only take a matter of days, we can advise if your roofing poses a risk and if it needs removal or can be managed.

If you think your roof could contain asbestos, we’ll remove it safely with minimal risk to health and the environment. If you call us suspecting you have asbestos, we will arrange the survey to check its presence and work to remove it safely. We are certified to manage asbestos removal and disposal.

We operate across the southeast. With decades of experience working in the sector, we have successfully managed thousands of asbestos removal projects.

I cannot fault this company at all. My emails were answered promptly and when scheduled to come he turned up on time. He made minimal mess and the report we were left with,after samples were tested, was very extensive. Although he was not the cheapest quote we got, we went with this company as it was local to us. We are pleased that we did. I would recommend them fully.
