Is there asbestos in your roof?
Asbestos has fantastic thermal qualities and it is fire-retardant. These are the qualities that made asbestos extensively used in insulation and roofing throughout the 20th-century. One of the most commonly used roofing products is cement sheets and you will find a large amount of asbestos in these sheets. The problem with these sheets occurs when they begin to deteriorate with age and turn brittle. As a result, it creates a much greater risk of the mineral fibres becoming loose, exposed and airborne. The type of asbestos that is generally used in cement roofing sheets is chrysotile or white asbestos and the removal of these sheets can be done without seeking permission from HSE or the local authority.
Even if the cement roofing sheets have not weathered, their constant exposure to elements like, UV rays, moisture, acid rain and frost enhance their risk of degradation. This leaves large areas of asbestos unprotected and if it is not removed properly, it can become a serious risk to your health. If you accidentally breathe the fibres, they will enter your lungs and can cause cancer.
Unfortunately, many commercial and residential buildings that were built before 1999 contain asbestos either within the cement or in the form of panels. As a layman, it will be impossible for you to tell whether your roof contains asbestos simply by observing your roof. Moreover, you are advised against disturbing the asbestos-containing materials without the presence of licensed professionals.
If you are planning to replace your roof, hire our asbestos surveyors and leverage our asbestos removal service. We will assess your roof to identify asbestos and accordingly craft a removal plan that will cause minimal inconvenience to you.

Heywood is a town in the Metropolitan Borough of Rochdale, Greater Manchester, England. Within the boundaries of the historic county of Lancashire, it had a population of 28,205. The town lies on the south bank of the River Roch, 2.4 miles (3.9 km) east of Bury, 3.7 miles (6.0 km) west-southwest of Rochdale, and 7.4 miles (11.9 km) north of Manchester. Middleton lies to the south, whilst to the north is the Cheesden Valley, open moorland, and the Pennines. Heywood’s nickname, Monkey Town, is known to date back to 1857.
The Anglo-Saxons cleared the densely wooded area, dividing it into heys or fenced clearings. In the Middle Ages, Heywood formed a chapelry in the township, centred on Heywood Hall, a manor house owned by a family with the surname Heywood. Farming was the main industry of a sparsely populated rural area. The population supplemented their incomes by hand-loom woollen weaving in the domestic system.
The factory system in the town can be traced to a spinning mill in the late 18th century. Following the introduction of textile manufacture during the Industrial Revolution, Heywood developed into a mill town and coal mining district. A period of “extraordinary growth of the cotton-trade” in the mid 19th century was so quick and profound that there was “an influx of strangers causing a very dense population”. The town became a municipal borough in 1881. Imports of foreign cotton goods in the mid-20th century precipitated the decline of Heywood’s textile and mining industries, resulting in a more diverse industrial base. The town was well respected for the quality of its cotton goods. The Queen mother once visited Heywood in the very early 1900s to admire the cotton in its factories. Cotton from Heywood cotton mills was used to create the dress that she wore for her 50th birthday celebration speech.
