Asbestos roof removal Perth

Perth properties built before 2003 are likely to contain asbestos in their roofing. Asbestos was used in roofing because it was inexpensive, durable and fire-resistant. There are many types of roofs that will typically contain asbestos including:

  • Corrugated cement sheets
  • Roofing shingles
  • Roof tiles

Asbestos can also be found in other areas associated with the roof, such as:

  • Gutters
  • Downpipes
  • Pipe coverings
  • Insulation in pipes

There are many types of asbestos roofs and areas that could contain asbestos. As professional asbestos removalists, we can identify most forms of asbestos via an inspection and conduct the correct methods for asbestos removal and asbestos disposal. However, to get a conclusive result you will need to get asbestos testing.

Per square metre (minimum total cost $950 +GST)

Frequently asked questions

Over time asbestos roofs will become brittle and unsafe to maintain. You should have your asbestos roof removed by a licensed and trained contractor when you notice visible signs of deterioration.

The asbestos fibres were mixed with other materials like cement, making it difficult to identify the fibres with the naked eye. However, if the roof contains grey coloured corrugated sheets or tiles, it likely contains asbestos. The only way to conclusively tell if your roof contains asbestos is by having a sample tested.

Keep gutters and downpipes clean and in good working order. Never use a high-pressure hose to clean asbestos roofs. Doing this will break up the surface of the asbestos-containing sheet.

Most asbestos cement roofs last approximately 40 years but less time if they have not been regularly maintained.

If the asbestos roof tiles are undamaged, they are considered safe. In the instance that they become damaged or are badly weathered, asbestos fibres will become airborne which is dangerous to inhale.

For asbestos roof removal from Rapid Asbestos Removals, prices start from $50 per square metre, with a minimum total cost of $950 +GST.
