If you are concerned about asbestos, it is essential that you call the experts. Asbestos can potentially be found in any building built before 2000 as the last ban of asbestos products in the UK was only in 1999. Asbestos is a naturally occurring mineral, whose fibres were mined and mixed with other materials to be used in all sorts of building products for different applications. It is now understood that asbestos causes 5000 deaths a year, with around 20 tradesmen each week dying as a result of past exposure from a host of serious diseases, including lung cancer.

When materials containing asbestos are disturbed or damaged, fibres are released into the air and they can cause serious diseases. More alarmingly, it can take between 10 and 50 years to develop these diseases, so by the time you are diagnosed it is often too late to rectify the issue.

Removal of asbestos garage and asbestos garage roofs near Leatherhead

Garages, sheds and barns were commonly roofed with asbestos cement and some garages are entirely constructed from asbestos cement sheeting. Asbestos garage roofs can often be recognised because they are corrugated and we can carry out an inspection and sampling, if confirmation is needed.

The need to remove an asbestos garage or asbestos garage roof will depend on the condition of the structure, the asbestos cement and whether you are planning refurbishment or demolition. If you are planning major works, we will always recommend removal, whereas if there is a small amount of damage, asbestos encapsulation can often be a solution.
