Does the presence of an asbestos roof have any impact on property values? In 1 word: yes. The buyers dictate demand, and if an asbestos roof fears them, then it will be a problem.

Professional asbestos roof removal contractor in Perth

The use of fibrous roofing products has been banned since 31 December 2003 in Australia. It means that the manufacture, supply, use, sale, or reuses of fibrous roofing products are no longer permitted. However, the ban doesn’t apply to buildings that were installed or renovated before this date. Many buildings in Perth, whether residential or commercial, may still contain fibrous roofing products that can be potentially harmful to the building occupants.

Moreover, the Perth city council recommends you to engage a professional contractor in removing fibrous materials at your premises. Here are several reasons why you should seek help from a certified contractor to perform roof replacement project:

1. Health hazards associated with fibrous roofing and siding products

Before the health hazards of ACMs were identified, they were commonly used in the construction industry since they possess excellent mechanical properties and are resistant to fire and water.

Nowadays, the health effects of prolonging exposure to them in human are widely acknowledged and well documented. It has been reported that asbestos-related diseases kill nearly 5000 people each year, which is more than the total number of individuals killed by car accidents.

2. Performing a DIY roof removal yourself is dangerous

You always have to keep in mind that removing fibrous products yourself can be dangerous for you and the people around you. The release of fibres into the air is unavoidable and in most cases, you won’t notice that you inhaled a high amount of fibres already.

If you are thinking of removing the material by yourself, you have to consider the following:

  • Is there an alternative besides removing the ACM? For example, sealing or covering the damaged material with non-fibrous products
  • Can you follow the safety procedure to handle the ACM safely?
  • If the work is too complicated, should you hire a licensed removalist?

3. A license is needed to remove fibrous roofing and siding materials in Perth

You need a license to remove fibrous roofing and siding products in Perth. Only qualified and licensed personnel can undertake this type of project. As stated by the Western Australian law, different types of ACMs must be handled differently. The local requirements for handling fibrous materials are:

  • An A-class and B-class license holder can remove bonded/non-friable materials
  • Only an A-class license holder can remove friable materials

The regulatory bodies encourage a property owner to engage a licensed professional to remove fibrous roofing and siding materials. An unauthorised removal of fibrous materials is not only dangerous, but also illegal. By handling the replacement of friable roofing products yourself, you are not only risking serious health hazards but also high penalty from the regulatory bodies. Be it from the roofs, eaves and ceilings, choosing a licensed removalist is important.

Extensive services provided by our A-class licensed contractors

Our approved contractors offer a complete service starting from an initial survey until the dispose of harmful waste in a legal landfill. They can undertake a complete removal, minor and major repairs, and also the replacement of fibrous roofing and siding materials. They ensure that your property is managed to the highest of standards, while you are having a control of your budget.

Here are services offered by our endorsed members:

1. A thorough inspection of your corrugated roofs

Shed, outbuilding, and garage roofs are commonly constructed using fibrous cement sheeting. Roofs made of cement sheeting can often be identified as they are mostly corrugated. The vast majority of these corrugated roofs contain fibrous products. If in doubt, our approved assessors can carry out asbestos sampling and testing to ascertain whether asbestos is present.

Depends on the situation, they may do an initial removal to obtain a sample for analysis purposes. Once our qualified contractors completed the survey, they will assess the necessity of a repair or elimination work for the suspected material. If a removal work is required, our endorsed specialists will handle removal of the whole roof or certain main structures that support the roof.

2. Repairing your damaged or deteriorated roofs

If there is minor damage, such as chipped edges or small amounts of cracking to the cement sheets, our licensed members can look at the damaged materials and advise on the best course of action. Repairing, rather than removing the damaged roofing materials, may be feasible.

Our approved members will either use sealing/encapsulation or covering/enclosure techniques to repair the damaged materials. Encapsulation technique involves covering the fibrous products with a sealant that either binds the fibres together or coats them to prevent the release of fibres.

Enclosure technique involves the construction of an airtight and impermeable barrier near the damaged materials to contain the fibres. Our endorsed members can cover the damaged roofing materials with polystyrene foam insulation panels to ensure the quality of the enclosure process.

Another possible solution is to leave the original slate in the initial place and only remove the aluminum siding. This will avoid the formation of hazardous dust from tearing the slate off your roof. With these types of repair, they ensure that the fibrous roofing materials will remain intact.

3. Removal and replacement of the entire roof or main supporting structures containing ACM

Whether you need to remove fibrous materials from the roof will depend on the condition of the roof itself and what your plans are. If you intend to carry out refurbishment or demolition, then you will need to remove the fibrous materials before carrying out the rest of the projects.

If the materials are damaged, then removal of the fibrous material is likely to be the best solution. Contact contractors through us to remove the damaged roof from your building to ensure your health and safety.

Briefly, here are the steps that our professional members will do:

  • Our approved contractors always wear protective equipment such as disposable overalls and respiratory protective masks
  • They will limit the access to several areas to prevent further contamination
  • They will remove the damaged materials and place the waste in a special container
  • After the above process, they will check all remaining dust and clean the contaminated area with a specialized equipment
  • They will seal the ceiling to ensure that no airborne fibres remain
  • They can also upgrade the roof structures to meet modern building requirements
  • Our endorsed members can also replace the old roof with a new roof of your choice

4. Transportation and disposal of the hazardous waste in an approved legal landfill

Transportation and disposal of hazardous waste are another important procedures to ensure the completion of the work. Our licensed contractors will take care of the transportation and disposal of the hazardous waste to a nearby legal landfill.
