What To Do With My Asbestos Roof
There are literally thousands of Sheds and Garages up and down the UK
with roofs of asbestos cement.
Many of these, built in the 1950’s and 60’s and are now beginning to leak
In the ‘Good Old Days,’ the policy was to scrape of the moss off of the sheets
and coat the roof with a bitumen treatment.
Scraping the moss off is frowned upon these days because of the risks of
disturbing asbestos fibres that may be released from the sheet
So, what is the best solution?
One idea is to overlay the roof with Insulation and Steel Sheets
First you must fit the spacer bars
Then, if you wish, you can add Insulation.
Here we have added a glass fibre quilt
Then you fit the roof sheets
Then, when the sheeting is done, you must attend to the edge details
And the roof is then finished
