Throughout the 1900s and even as late as the 1980s, asbestos was the standard in the building industry and was considered a highly versatile and hardy product for use in cement roofing sheets. Its use was hailed as a breakthrough in terms of being fireproof, durable, weatherproof and heat resistant.
However, as we now know, asbestos is highly deadly to humans and pets alike. When the product is removed, disturbed or broken down, the fibres, once inhaled, cause irreversible and fatal diseases ranging from mesothelioma, lung cancer, asbestosis and pleural plaques. As such, all asbestos products were officially banned from both manufacture and use across Australia in 2003.
For this reason, if your property contains asbestos roofing, you should not try to remove it yourself. If you’re uncertain about the composition of your cement roofing sheets, please contact C4 Demolition immediately and we will speak to you about your options.
Our staff are highly trained at identifying and removing all types of asbestos, having attained CPCCDE3014A Remove Non-Friable Asbestos or CPCCDE3015A Remove Friable Asbestos qualifications. Our staff are frequently retrained in order to maintain the highest quality of work and in alignment with Australian asbestos removal standards.
