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.

Shaw

Shaw and Crompton is a civil parish within the Metropolitan Borough of Oldham, in Greater Manchester, England. It contains the town of Shaw and lies on the River Beal at the foothills of the South Pennines, 2.3 miles (3.7 km) north of Oldham, 3.6 miles (5.8 km) southeast of Rochdale, and 8.7 miles (14 km) to the northeast of the city of Manchester.

Historically in Lancashire, Crompton (as it was originally known) and its surroundings have provided evidence of ancient British and Anglian activity in the area. During the Middle Ages, Crompton formed a small township of scattered woods, farmsteads, moorland and swamp with a small and close community of families. The local lordship was weak or absent, and so Crompton failed to emerge as a manor with its own lord and court. Farming was the main industry of this broadly independent and self-supporting rural area, with locals supplementing their incomes by hand-loom woollen weaving in the domestic system.

The introduction of textile manufacture during the Industrial Revolution initiated a process of rapid and unplanned urbanisation. A building boom began in Crompton during the mid-19th century, when suitable land for factories in Oldham was becoming scarce. By the late 19th century Crompton had emerged as a densely populated mill town. Forty-eight cotton mills—some of the largest in the United Kingdom—have been recorded as existing in the area. At its spinning zenith, as a result of an interwar economic boom associated with the textile industry, Shaw and Crompton was reported to have had more millionaires per capita than any other town in the world. Imports of foreign cotton goods began the decline in the region’s textile industry during the mid-20th century; Shaw and Crompton’s last mill closed in 1989.
