Asbestos Roof surfaces breakdown over time.
A recent asbestos roof inspection by Asbestos Roof Solutions, revealed that the roof surface had deteriorated to such an extent that asbestos fibres were visible to the naked eye.
In many circumstances these fibres are loose and do escape the cement bond but they may be detected using a microscope.
The above image clearly shows Crocidolite (blue) asbestos fibres on the surface of the roof sheets.
In this instance the client has opted to take advantage of the application of the Fibroseal asbestos roof encapsulation system, supplied and installed by Asbestos Roof Solutions Pty Ltd.
The fibres will be bound in the surface coating and on completion a warranty for the encapsulation coating will be supplied.
As a viable alternative to full roof removal and replacement, asbestos roof encapsulation can prevent the above situation by locking the asbestos fibres in situ as well as numerous other benefits.
Asbestos Roof Solutions Pty Ltd specialise in the repair of asbestos roofs, including the encapsulation of asbestos roof surfaces.
