Roof Removal in Melbourne
The roofing of many homes, workplaces and building structures all around Melbourne and Australia in general were built using asbestos-containing materials such as asbestos cement roofing. Asbestos roofing materials were extremely popular in use right up until the 1980s and their distribution was not completed banned until 2003, so if your home was not constructed recently, chances are it contains asbestos.
There are numerous risks associated with handling, moving and disposing of asbestos fibres and asbestos-containing material. In addition, roofing maintenance is discouraged as a DIY practice because of the injury risk from working at a height and specialist technical skills are needed.
Dealing with the problem yourself can further disrupt the asbestos fibres which will only lead to needing more specialised professionals afterwards!
At MD Asbestos Removals, our team are specially trained and familiar with safe-handling practices, asbestos roof removal services and waste disposal practices meeting all Environmental Protection Authority regulations. Contacting experts is the only way to ensure your home is completely free of contaminated materials without causing any damage in the process!
How to identify if your roofing contains asbestos:
- Checking out the manufacturer product name and date. Look for labels around your home, on your roofing materials If it dates back to the early 1980s or earlier, the chances of your roof sheeting containing asbestos, are very high. Some items such as asbestos cement might indicate ‘AC’ (asbestos cement) on their label.
- The date is not always a failsafe indication as asbestos was not completed banned from use until the early 2000s. If you’ve located a manufacturer’s label, a quick online search of the material or product and what it comprises of is definitely in your best interest to get the all-clear.
- If possible, contact the building company or contractors to get some background information on whether any of the materials contain asbestos.
- How to be 100% sure? Book a free professional on-site consultation or inspection with our Melbourne experts in asbestos roof removal services, asbestos in general and contaminated soil removal.
While asbestos roof sheeting that has remained intact is less likely to cause you harm, there is always a degree of risk. The only way to ensure there is zero risk is to have it removed completely and replaced.
