Asbestos in your roof: a hidden killer

This fibrous material is classified as a hazardous material and was widely used in the past in a large number of construction products, including roofing and siding materials. Roofing and siding products containing this harmful substance are obviously still very evident in our communities today, as many post-war homes were built or renovated with fibre-containing cement sheeting.

Section 1: 3 things you need to know about fibre roof replacement

Asbestos was used extensively between the 1930s until the 1980s in residential and commercial buildings in Melbourne. It was added as a mixing material for roofing and siding products to increase their durability, strengthen them, and provide insulation property. Asphalt and cement products are the most commonly used roofing materials in Melbourne.

Even though the use of fibrous roofing products was banned since December 2003 throughout Australia, you can still find this harmful substance in many buildings in Melbourne including residential, industrial, and commercial buildings.

 

1.Potential health risks from fibrous roofing products

When asphalt and cement roofing are intact and in good condition, they are generally not hazardous and non-friable. However, weather and ageing can weaken these non-friable materials and turn them to be friable. A renovation or demolition work can also disturb these materials.

Friable materials can potentially release fibres into the air and make them go airborne. When being inhaled, airborne fibres can lodge within the lungs and cause severe diseases such as lung cancer and mesothelioma.

Note: Avoid disturbing, breaking, cutting and removing the roofing products alone!

When roofing products are damaged or deteriorated, they should be carefully repaired. In some cases, they can also be covered with new materials.

 

2. A visual inspection is not enough to tell whether a material contains fibrous materials or not

To tell if a material contains fibre, you should check for asbestos marking on the packaging of the roofing products. If you are unsure, you can try to call the manufacturer to ask whether it contains fibrous-material or not.

Another alternative is by hiring a certified inspector to conduct an asbestos testing in an accredited laboratory. You cannot tell whether a material contains hazardous fibres or not just by a visual inspection. The material has to be tested via an accredited laboratory using a microscopy analysis.

 

3. A license is needed to remove fibrous roofing products in Melbourne

You have to keep in mind that performing a DIY removal project can be dangerous for you and also the people around you. Local, regional, and national laws regulate the procedure and safety handling of fibrous roof removal Melbourne.

Based on these regulations, property owner or property managers are encouraged to seek help and advice from licensed removalists to remove deteriorated roofing materials.

Closing is commonly used to repair exposed insulated piping and roofing shingles. Often, tearing the roofing materials will produce excessive airborne fibres.
