Asbestos roof removal - expert testing & advice

Asbestos Roof Removal & Replacement

Asbestos is a hazardous material that can cause serious health problems if not handled correctly. If you have an old asbestos roof, it’s imperative to replace it with a lightweight, modern roof.

Asbestos testing can be conducted at the assessment stage for older roofs like decramastic tiled roofs.

The main types of roofing materials that can include asbestos are:

In New Zealand, we often discover asbestos in the roofing of older homes.

For a long time, cement sheets were used for roofs and sidings on commercial and residential buildings. These are also referred to as corrugated cement sheets or super six sheets.

If you have cement sheets on your property, it is a wise idea to have them checked for asbestos.

Decramastic roof tiles are pressed metal tiles common before the 1980s in New Zealand. They are made in a curved scallop shape, and have a stone coating for added durability.

Unfortunately, many of them were made of asbestos. While they are generally considered ‘safe’ if they remain in a reasonable condition, they can quickly become a hazard should they break or deteriorate.

Today, it is advisable to assume that these tiles have asbestos until proven otherwise by testing.

In commercial and industrial buildings, bitumen and membrane roofing, or modified bitumen roofing, are also popular materials.

Due to their seamless design, butumen and membrane roofing materials are highly durable against weather and leaks.

Testing older properties and homes is recommended.
