After being weakened asbestos roofing emits dangerous airborne fibres that are dangerous to health, primarily the lungs. To secure your home and create a safe living atmosphere for your family, it is encouraged you replace the asbestos roofing with an asbestos-free roofing material like, for example, COLORBOND®.
Asbestos lets out tiny fibres that are extremely unhealthy for your lungs upon being inhaled. Just a couple of seconds can result in diseases for example Asbestosis (scaring of lungs) or cancer.
Some decades ago corrugated asbestos roof sheets were one of the most widely used roofing material. From 1940s to the 80s using materials containing asbestos was a very common practice worldwide. With the evolution of technology many safer, especially more durable roofing products like, for example, ZINCALUME® metal roofing, became obtainable.

Many severe lung conditions may result by inhaling the fibres from broken asbestos containing materials. One of these, Asbestosis, is a disease caused by inhaling asbestos fibres. The disease doesn’t show its symptoms for a very long stretch of time, and to make matters worse, there isn’t a cure discovered for it yet. With the growth of the Asbestosis, to relieve the lack of breath and chest pain, patients can only undergo a series of different treatments.
By style and design asbestos is quite resistant and a strong building material, for that reason it’s not very easy to break it. Taking into consideration the fact that usage of asbestos has been dropped a long time ago, asbestos roofing on many houses and buildings is seriously weakened, making it easier to break and release the dangerous fibres.
Asbestos removal should not be done by an inexperienced roofer. When removing asbestos isn’t properly done there’s a threat of the area being quarantined as a result of high amounts of fibres in the air surrounding it. Remember to always ask the roofer you want to hire about his experience in removing asbestos and any relevant licenses he possesses.
