Asbestos Over Cladding

Asbestos Roofs will almost certainly need radically upgrading to meet today’s exacting regulations.

What is Asbestos?

Asbestos is highly dangerous: a single asbestos fibre can be lethal if inhaled. These particles are typically invisible to the naked eye, making them impossible to avoid without specialist training and equipment. As a result, it’s essential that all work done on an asbestos roof is done by a qualified professional using appropriate tools and safety equipment. Asbestos was a popular roofing material throughout the 20th century and is still found in most British buildings constructed or renovated before the year 2000.

Where is Overcladding needed?

Lengthen the life of your asbestos roof with over cladding. Over cladding adds one or more additional layers on top of your existing roof. This can be used to increase the insulation in your roof, bringing your property in line with current legislation and lowering heating bills. It can also be used to reseal your roof, making it watertight again, this is a cost-effective approach with a visually appealing result.

This will also protect the existing roofing structure from the elements, preventing further damage which might lead to the entire roof needing to be replaced. An over cladding project can also be combined with replacing existing skylights or installing new ones to provide you with natural light.
