What is asbestos?
Asbestos is the generic term for a number of naturally occurring fibrous silicate minerals. These fibres have excellent durability, fire resistance and insulating properties which is why it was so attractive to the building industry for so many years. Products made from asbestos cement include fibro sheeting, corrugated roofing sheets, roofing shingles and guttering.
The manufacture and use of asbestos was banned in late 2003 due to major health risks. Serious asbestos related diseases can occur if airborne asbestos is breathed in and lodged in the lung tissue.
Is an asbestos roof
Yes, asbestos roofing can be dangerous if the asbestos roof sheeting is moved or disturbed. Storms or falling tree limbs can cause damage to asbestos roofs. As asbestos roofs get older and more friable tiny particles of asbestos become airborne. We recommend the removal and replacement of asbestos roofs with a stable metal one.
Do asbestos roofs need to be
Current scientific and medical evidence supports the fact that simply living or working in a building containing asbestos is not dangerous as long as the asbestos is in good condition (i.e. undamaged). If an asbestos roof is damaged due to storm or neglect it is recommended that it be replaced rather than repaired.
Asbestos roofs stopped being installed in the mid 80s which means that any asbestos roof you see now is over 35 years and definitely beginning to deteriorate.
