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.

Milnrow

Milnrow is a suburban town within the Metropolitan Borough of Rochdale, in Greater Manchester, England. It lies on the River Beal at the foothills of the South Pennines, and forms a continuous urban area with Rochdale. It is 1.9 miles (3.1 km) east of Rochdale town centre, 10.4 miles (16.7 km) north-northeast of Manchester, and spans urban, suburban and rural locations—from Windy Hill in the east to the Rochdale Canal in the west. Milnrow is adjacent to junction 21 of the M62 motorway, and includes the village of Newhey, and hamlets at Tunshill and Ogden.

Historically in Lancashire, Milnrow during the Middle Ages was one of several hamlets in the township of Butterworth and parish of Rochdale. The settlement was named by the Anglo-Saxons, but the Norman conquest of England resulted in its ownership by minor Norman families, such as the Schofields and Cleggs. In the 15th century, their descendants successfully agitated for a chapel of ease by the banks of the River Beal, triggering its development as the main settlement in Butterworth. Milnrow was primarily used for marginal hill farming during the Middle Ages, and its population did not increase much until the dawn of the woollen trade in the 17th century.

With the development of packhorse routes to emerging woollen markets in Yorkshire, the inhabitants of Milnrow adopted the domestic system, supplementing their income by fellmongering and producing flannel in their weavers’ cottages. Coal mining and metalworking also flourished in the Early Modern period, and the farmers, colliers and weavers formed a “close-knit population of independent-minded workers”. The hamlets of Butterworth coalesced around the commercial and ecclesiastical centre in Milnrow as demand for the area’s flannel grew. In the 19th century, the Industrial Revolution supplanted domestic woollen industries and converted the area into a mill town, with cotton spinning as the principal industry. Mass-produced textile goods from Milnrow’s cotton mills were exported globally with the arrival of the railway in 1863. The Milnrow Urban District was established in 1894 and was governed by the district council until its abolition in 1974.
