Asbestos roofing is very common in older properties on the Sunshine Coast, and throughout Australia. If your property was built prior to 1990, it could still contain this potentially dangerous material.
Whilst intact, bonded asbestos cement is quite safe. However, with age and weather damage, the asbestos can start to break down and shed harmful fibres.
This can not only affect your health, but also the value of your home. Potential property buyers tend to shun asbestos-clad homes, or argue a substantial drop in price.
Removing the asbestos and adding a new roof to your property is not only safer for you and your family, but will also add value.
In addition, there is strict legislation in place in Queensland regarding the removal and disposal of asbestos.
Stormguard Roofing has all the required QBCC (Queensland Building & Construction Commission) licenses to safely remove asbestos, as well as a WPHS QLD class B asbestos license and Department of Environment and Resource Management EHP licence for waste management.
