Asbestos Roof Cleaning & Treating

Asbestos is a relatively common but potentially dangerous substance found in many roofs, particularly pre-80’s build residences or commercial properties. It is possible to clean and even seal asbestos roofs, but due to the health risks involved with mishandling asbestos it is recommended that only specially trained professionals perform any asbestos roof services. At Nationwide Roof Cleaning we have specially trained teams who are qualified in cleaning and sealing asbestos surfaces and guarantee a safe, effective service at reasonable prices. Our recommended agents with travel Nationwide, which means that no matter your location or situation we are able to help renovate your roof.

What is asbestos and why is it a concern?

Asbestos is a fibrous material that is heat and chemical resistant, fireproof and strong. This made it an enormously popular material for insulating and fireproofing houses and industrial sites, particularly in the 60s and 70s. It is still found in many older houses around the UK.

Asbestos roofs need to be treated with caution as asbestos was later linked with serious health conditions such as cancer (particularly lung cancer), asbestosis, organ issues, and other conditions. Asbestos is dangerous when it is inhaled, which means that an agitation of an asbestos area causes a dangerous risk of airborne fibres which can then be ingested and settle around organ linings and tissues. It is highly recommended that only trained professionals clean or treat asbestos roofs.

Should you treat an asbestos roof?

Despite the additional caution required it is still strongly recommended that you clean and treat your asbestos roof. Asbestos roofs are just as likely as non-asbestos roof to have issues with moss growth, tile wear and weakening, and colour fading, some of which can cause serious damage to a roof; this could include water ingress, broken tiles, roof flooding, and even structural damage. This can cause further damage to your property and cost you a lot of money if left untreated, so it is highly recommended to sort any of these issues quickly.

Can you seal and paint an asbestos roof?

Yes, with ever advancing and thoroughly tested sealers it is possible to both seal and coat an asbestos roof. However, it is very important to ensure that the products used are suitable for an asbestos roof and we recommend anyone thinking of this treatment to research their intended products very carefully or consult with an asbestos trained professional.

Our asbestos team at Nationwide Roof Cleaning offer both sealing and coating services. A roof seal is the application of a clear liquid that waterproofs the roof and protects against water ingress and biological organism (such as moss) growth. Roof coating is a sealer too but re-colours the roof tile as well as sealing it. For long term roof protection and maintenance, a roof seal or coating is the best option for optimum performance and longevity.
