Asbestos Roof Replacement Brisbane
Our fully licenced team will safely remove and replace your old Asbestos roof
If you have an Asbestos roof, you’ve very likely thought about whether you need to get it removed and replaced.
Generally speaking, having an Asbestos roof isn’t really a problem…until it does become a problem. And when it does, it WILL absolutely need replacing. If your home was built before 1982, your Asbestos roof sheeting has probably started to crack, split and grow mould over the years.
A typical Asbestos roof most likely has up to 6 ribs per sheet for added strength and has been totally sealed top and bottom on manufacture. The trouble is that over time – anywhere between 20 and 50 years – Queensland’s harsh climate has caused that top seal to erode.
As a result, the roof sheets will have become brittle, weak and potentially dangerous if Asbestos fibres become airborne, or worse still, if it becomes friable. Movement around the fixing points (screws & nails) can make the problem worse, and if the overlapped sheets have become loose and have been rubbing for years, the strength and safety of your roof has been compromised.
Once Asbestos fibres become airborne, they present serious health issues, including severe respiratory diseases and fatal cases of cancer. So if your Asbestos roof is old and in poor condition, then it’s time to call the Asbestos roof replacement experts at MHI Roofing. Our guarantee to you is that we’ll safely and professionally remove and replace your Asbestos roof whilst meeting all necessary compliance measures. The MHI Roofing team has been replacing Asbestos roofs for well over 20 years, so you can be confident we’ll do the job right.
In fact, we have passed each and every audit by Government Asbestos Compliance bodies.
Here’s how we will replace your Asbestos roof
An Asbestos roof replacement needs to be completed methodically and carefully by a dedicated team of professionals.
Some of the steps we take include:
- Completely sealing the roof before removing anything, even a single screw.
- Passing the sheets carefully down from man-to-man – not tossing the sheets into a dusty skip where they could crack and release Asbestos fibres.
- Painstakingly removing everything, including the insulation in case it is contaminated.
- Completely vacuuming the ceiling with a HEPA 13 Filter to remove even minute specks of toxic material.
Before our roofing specialists install your new tile roof or new metal roof, detailed air monitoring is undertaken to ensure it is habitable again. Then and only then, will we issue a Certificate of Clearance for your household records.
The thing that sets MHI Roofing apart from others who perform Asbestos roof replacements is the fact that we can look after literally everything, from safely removing your old roof to installing your new metal roof, so that it all runs like clockwork.
You may also have rotten or old structural roofing timbers that need repairs or replacement. As we have a full Builders Licence, we can handle these types or tasks and more including painting, electrical, plumbing and so forth. Because we have a large, highly experienced team of professional roofing contractors, we work quicker than other less-resourceful teams.
In most cases we can actually get your old asbestos roof off, and a new one on, that very same day. Furthermore, if you have a larger roof, we can work on one side first, say the most damaged, then do the other half the next day.
Should I go with tiles or metal for my new roof?
Many of our customers choose to replace their old Asbestos roof with a new metal one rather than going with tiles. This is because tile roofs require ongoing maintenance approximately every 10 years, whereas a metal roof can last up to 30 years without maintenance.
At MHI Roofing, we only use the best quality iron from the Australian manufacturer, Bluescope Steel, supplied to Stratco QLD. Every replacement comes in a wide range of attractive colours and styles that will suit any home’s décor and add a new dimension to your home!
For your ultimate peace of mind, we proudly offer a full 10-year warranty on workmanship. Stratco also offers a warranty of up to 30 years to protect your new roof against rust perforation (depending on environmental factors and your location). This warranty is issued upon installation via written application.
