Commerical Asbestos Removal (Tile Removal)

What is Asbestos roofing

Until the early 1980s in Adelaide, asbestos was a material that was widely used both in home construction and commercial construction. One of the most common uses for this asbestos material was asbestos roof materials such as shingles and tiles. If your home was built at any point before the middle of the 1980s, there is a chance that your roofing shingles may be made using asbestos.

Coming in the form of roofing shingles and corrugated sheeting, the aesthetic makeup of asbestos roofing on Australian businesses is reasonably common.

Since this era, many roofing shingles and tile manufacturers have worked hard to seek out alternative materials for the purpose of roofing. As a result, asbestos roofing shingles and tiles are far less common in commercial properties, as the material is often removed. Unfortunately, this does not rule out the problems associated with businesses built in the past, as commercial property owners have to face the idea of a harmful substance being found within their walls, ceilings and roofs. If you are unsure whether your roofing system is comprised of asbestos, it is essential to employ the assistance of Quality Roofing for the safety of your business.

Why Remove Asbestos

Roofs that were constructed using asbestos were commonly referred to as asbestos roofs, but most of these roofs contained less than 30 % of asbestos fibres, meaning that they were classified as asbestos materials. The most common type of asbestos that was used in roofing tiles was transit, which was made of a combination of asbestos fibres and cement along with other materials which were added as needed. The asbestos cement mixture was capable of being moulded and then cut into different shapes – giving the material the same look as slate roof tiles. It also could be drilled with holes, making the entire installation process faster and more efficient. The addition of the asbestos fibres to the other concrete composites added fire resistance, resistance to deterioration and an extreme bonus durability. Commercial properties that were covered with asbestos roofing tiles were designed to last as long as one hundred years when they were maintained properly.

Today, the word asbestos is a frightening one, because people that have been exposed to the airborne toxin have gone on to develop malignant mesothelioma, lung cancer and asbestosis among other lung and breathing diseases and disorders. For this reason, if you feel as if your home may have a roof containing asbestos, it would be important for you to contact a certified asbestos shingles removal company, or a company offering asbestos roofing removal like quality roofing.
