Proper equipmentWhat is asbestos?

Asbestos is a generic term that refers to a number of fibrous silicate minerals. There are many different products that have been made from asbestos cement, such as fibro sheeting, gutters, downpipes, and of course roofing sheets and guttering. Asbestos was widely used in the roofing industry between 1940s and late 1980s before health risks were discovered and it was banned in 2003.

If your roof was built before this ban, then you will need to think about getting asbestos removal in Brisbane.

Unfortunately, there are many risks involved in this process, starting with the dangers of climbing onto your roof without the proper equipment. Here are some things you need to avoid doing when removing asbestos from your roof.
