Asbestos concrete roof removal and replacement in Tooting

Why did the client need our services?

Our customer contacted us because they were concerned about their garage roof in Tooting, which was showing signs of degradation and wear and tear. When asbestos fibres are released into the atmosphere, they can become very dangerous and lead to serious illness.

Our sister company, Goodbye Asbestos, completed a full survey of the garage roof and confirmed the presence of asbestos. They then advised the customer regarding the best garage roof removal and replacement options. We discussed the different roof replacement options, including corrugated cement, steel, composite and felt roofing.

The customer opted for goosewing grey composite sheets with matching flashing and trims, and we arranged a date to complete the work.

What work was carried out?

Our asbestos contractors began by preparing the area in 1000-gauge polythene to protect the space from contamination. We then wet down the asbestos cement with damp rags, ensuring reasonable saturation. The bolts were carefully cut, and the cement corrugated sheets were removed completely without breakage.

Sections of the roof were then lowered to the floor and wrapped in 1000-gauge polythene, enclosing tightly with duct tape. Our highly skilled asbestos removal contractors then completed a visual inspection of the local removal area, checking that all asbestos materials had been removed. Paperwork was then provided confirming the cleanliness of the work area after the removal had been carried out.

Our team of asbestos removal experts always wear the necessary PPE and respiratory devices to guarantee safety throughout every removal operation. As Environment Agency-licensed waste carriers, we are licensed to securely transport asbestos, complying with all upper-tier waste carrier guidelines.

We cut the sheets to size to complete the roof replacement and lifted them into position. We then fixed the sheets down to the supports underneath and cut and fixed the trims around the perimeter and ridges. All our work is guaranteed for 10 years.

Were there any challenges?

No, this roof removal and replacement was very straightforward.

What did the clients think of the results?
