How safe is your roof?

Asbestos has been extensively used in a large number of building materials, including roofing and siding products. It was used in commercial, industrial and residential construction applications. Asbestos was commonly mixed with cement to make stronger, lighter, and more durable commercial products.

The danger of asbestos-containing material (ACM) roofs begins after years of usage; when they start to get weathered. The weathering process indicates that there are changes in the material structures. It decomposes the product back into its original form as friable materials. At this state, even the slightest disturbance like a wind blow can cause a dangerous event or even worse, can costs you a lot of money.

Since roofs are located outside of the building, the risk of being exposed to friable roofing products is high. A single exposure to these harmful friable materials can lead to acute respiratory illness, such as asbestosis, lung cancer and mesothelioma.

Mesothelioma is a rare and aggressive type of cancer that happens in the lining of the lungs. Currently, there is no cure for mesothelioma. – Australian Asbestos Network

Even though the production of fibrous roofing products was banned entirely in 2003. Fibrous roofing products can still be found in many roofs across Australia. Why? Because there are so many buildings built before the 1980s still contain ACMs.
