Why does an asbestos garage roof need replacing?

Asbestos was used extensively as it has a very long lifespan and is very tough.

In fact, asbestos cement was so popular that it was the “go to” choice for a garage roof all of the way up to 2000.

The problem is as we now know if the asbestos fibres become loose and are inhaled it can’s fatal disease.

The problem really comes in an asbestos roof that has been damaged, you are better off getting the entire garage roof replaced with safe materials.

This is not a job that you will want to leave because of the risk of fatal disease down the line. If you are thinking about renting the property you will need to have this done for legal reasons.

What Are The Steps For Garage Roof Removal?

For instance, if you have a garage roof which has a very elevated pitch and is difficult to get to this can make the job more time-consuming.
