Asbestos Roof Removal

Based just outside of Glasgow, G.K. Contracts is an asbestos removal company, providing complete asbestos management services to clients across Scotland. Whether it’s complete removal or encapsulation, we have the skills and experience to safely handle your project.

While asbestos was used for a huge range of purposes, much of our work relates to roofing, where asbestos was extensively used. According to some estimates, over 50 percent of all industrial buildings in the UK still have an asbestos cement roof. Across the UK as a whole, an incredible 75 percent of all asbestos roofs are still in place today.

All our asbestos removal works are compliant with ACOP L143 (Control of Asbestos Regulations 2012) and HSG247 (The Licensed Contractors Guide). We use UKAS-accredited laboratories for atmospheric monitoring and asbestos bulk analysis.

Why is asbestos dangerous?

For a long time we thought asbestos was the wonder building material. It was malleable, sound absorbent and resistant to chemicals, water and electricity. It was cheap too.

While it had been used for thousands of years, asbestos usage skyrocketed during the latter half of the 19th century and early 20th century.

It was used everywhere and for a huge range of applications, including fire retardant coatings, bricks, insulation, flooring and drywall. A recent report suggested that over half of UK homes still have some amount of asbestos.

However, we have since learned that asbestos is seriously detrimental to your health. Companies like ours are now dedicated to the safe removal of asbestos to make homes and premises safe again.
