When you hire us for asbestos roof tile removal, we safely remove and dispose of roof tiles made with asbestos. Before the UK banned asbestos in 1999, it was commonly including roofing materials, such as shingles, tiles, felting, and corrugated sheets. Asbestos was thought to be extremely useful in the building trade, because it is durable, and fire-resistant.
Older roof tiles, especially those installed before the 1980s, may contain asbestos. Asbestos is now known to cause cancer. If the tiles are moved or disturbed, they can disperse tiny fibres into the air, which, when inhaled, are disastrous to human health.
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.
It is important you do not attempt to remove asbestos roof tiles yourself. Professional asbestos removal companies such as AJC Environmental are trained and equipped to remove asbestos containing materials (ACMs) including roof tiles, safely. We use specialised equipment to remove the slates and safely dispose of them in a hazardous waste facility.
Before any work begins, we conduct an asbestos survey to determine whether ACMs are present in the roof tiles or other building materials. This survey identifies potential hazards and gives us vital information on safely removing and disposing of asbestos-containing slates. After receiving the results of the tests, which should only take a matter of days, we can advise if your roof tiles pose a risk and if they need removing and disposing of by trained professionals.
Only qualified professionals should handle the removal of asbestos to ensure safety and security. Many builders and roofers may not know which tiles or slates 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.
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.
