Asbestos was commonly used in garage roofs but can be found in other areas too such as in tiles, around pipes, in the walls and around windows. It is difficult to notice whether your garage has asbestos present in it as you cannot see or smell asbestos fibres. If your garage was built sometime in the mid-1900s up until the turn of the century, it may be in the risk zone.

If you are worried that your garage or garage roof might be affected, get in touch with our team to schedule a survey. It is possible to remove the asbestos material yourself, however you must wear specialist equipment as well as follow strict regulations and procedures to guarantee optimal safety.

Asbestos is a small fibrous rock that was a very popularly used material in construction in the mid 20th century up until around year 2000 when it was prohibited in the UK. The reason behind its wide use was its properties such as sound absorption and resistance to fire and heat, making it a great material for insulating homes as well as fireproofing buildings.
Asbestos can be extremely harmful to humans and animals and can cause lung cancer and other severe and sometimes fatal diseases.
When asbestos is harmful depends on various factors. If the material carrying the asbestos (such as cement, sprayed coating or tiles) is left untouched and unharmed, the asbestos does not affect your health. It’s when the material is harmed by the likes of drilling, sawing or degradation of the material, the asbestos fibres are released into the air when it becomes dangerous.
