PROFESSIONAL ASBESTOS REMOVAL IN THE SUNSHINE COAST
Asbestos was once used in the manufacture of over 3,000 products, largely building products including roofing materials.
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.
If you suspect that there is asbestos in your roof, or anywhere else on your property, we can make it safe.
Do not delay, if you have any doubts or suspicions that asbestos may be present on your roof or in your gutters and eaves, call Stormguard Roofing.
We have been providing asbestos removal Sunshine Coast residents can rely on for many years and will be happy to provide you with a professional inspection.
Where Was Asbestos Commonly Used?
Asbestos was commonly used as roofing material in Australia until the 1980s. The most common form was a corrugated fibrocement sheet product manufactured by James Hardie Ltd called ‘Super Six’.
Corrugated asbestos roofing is easy to spot. It is thicker than corrugated iron, has a dull lacklustre appearance, and weathers heavily over time.
The greater the weathering, the greater the risk of deterioration with potentially dangerous implications. Weathering causes asbestos roofs to become friable and disintegrate. Asbestos fibres accumulate in gutters and then blow away in a strong wind.
To make matters worse, asbestos roofing contains a higher concentration of asbestos than other types of fibrocement building materials, and it contains all three major types of asbestos – crocidolite (blue asbestos), amosite (brown asbestos), and chrysotile (white asbestos) – to make the roofing more durable.

Asbestos in roofing and other building materials is usually found in one of two forms, friable or non-friable. Inhaling either can, over time, lead to dangerous lung diseases.
As a result, asbestos removal is tightly regulated, and rightly so. Separate licences are required to tackle each type. At Stormguard Roofing, we are licenced to remove both friable and non-friable asbestos.
Asbestos was commonly used to manufacture cement roof tiles, corrugated cement sheets, and cement gutters and downpipes.
