Know Your Roofs! Do they contain asbestos?

Roofs are one of the most important parts of a property and safe roofs equal with safety life. The roof protects us from heat, cold and extreme weather. So, choosing the right roofs for your building is most likely the smart way to do.

However, since the 1990s, non-friable materials (bonded asbestos) are widely used in commercial, residential and industrial properties in Australia. Fibrous materials are used because they are strong, resistant to heat and to many chemicals, and do not conduct electricity. Asbestos-containing materials (ACMs) are commonly used in roofing, cement sheeting, wall sheet, vinyl floor tiles, fencing, stove, hot water systems, etc.

If you have an old house and you want to change your ceiling or demolish your ceiling, you have to be cautious. You need to check and test it first as your ceiling might be contaminated with asbestos. Bonded asbestos might not poses risk as long as it is remains untouched and undamaged.

The problem is that with time, the top layer of the roofing sheets may break down and generate fibres. Fibres that are released into the air are dangerous and you may inhale them. Inhaling ACM is dangerous because it may cause a progression of aggressive diseases such as asbestosis, lung cancer and mesothelioma. You can not feel the symptoms immediately since the latency period of these disease are between 15 to 30 years.
