Asbestos Garages

Asbestos was previously used in many different forms within the construction of garages and sheds throughout the UK in the 1980’s, due to it’s practical benefits and low financial costs.

The most common Asbestos materials contained in Garages include:

  • Corrugated Asbestos Cement Roof
  • Asbestos Cement Wall Panels
  • Asbestos Cement Garage Roof and Walls

If your garage was built pre-1999, there is a good chance that Asbestos cement sheets were used in its construction. Asbestos was used extensively as a building material in the UK between the 1950s and 1999 so any type of building, including garages, built during this time may possibly contain it. Before Asbestos was identified to be harmful to overall health, the product was utilised to construct garages because it was affordable, light-weight and provide high-quality protection from the constituents.

Many garage roofs have Asbestos containing cement in them. If it’s in good condition, it’s not a problem. Over time, your garage roof will go through wear and tear, weathering, or possibly damage. The more damage that occurs, the higher the chances that asbestos fibres can make their way into people’s lungs.

Similarly to garage roofing, siding used Asbestos cement products that contained dangerous fibres. Many of these products were used to add additional support, stability, and fireproofing. Just like with the roofing, if the siding isn’t damaged, it presents no risk. However, any damage or weathering increases the risk of Asbestos fibres being released.

Asbestos garage removal can be extremely dangerous, especially should Asbestos fibre be released into the air when the material deteriorates or becomes damaged. Any Asbestos fibres that becomes airborne could be inhaled and enter the lungs which can cause life threatening diseases.

Subsequently, we would advise against Asbestos garage roofs being removed without the assistance of accredited suppliers or contractors,
