What is asbestos roof removal and replacement?
Asbestos roof removal is removing the existing asbestos roof fabric to make way for the new roof cladding to be installed. This would also include the removal of the internal plasterboard and galvanised `T` bar system.
How will my asbestos waste be managed?
All asbestos roof waste is handled in the correct manner as instructed by the HSE and Environment agency’s guidelines. The hazardous waste would be placed in lockable skips and removed from site via our appointed waste carrier. Consignment notes are passed onto our client on completion of the works to document the safe disposal.

Each project has an individual set of circumstances to work around, after a site visit VBS would produce a practical solution and method to undertake these works in a safe and efficient way.
What will my new roof cladding comprise of?
Once the asbestos roof removal is underway the new roof fabric can be installed using one of the three most popular options as listed below –
- Roof cladding with a twin skin built up system.
Liner sheets are fixed directly over the existing roof purlins, a grid system is installed to create a cavity for the insulation quilt. An external weather sheet is then laid and fixed over the grid system.
- Roof cladding with a composite roof system.
This is a roof sheet comprising of a liner sheet, PIR insulation and an external weather sheet all bonded together to create one sheet. VBS are approved installers of both Kingspan composite panels & Tata composite panels.
- Roof cladding with a single skin roof.
This is a weather sheet laid directly over the existing roof purlins. This option is most suitable for applications where no thermal properties are required and the main aim is to keep a building weathertight.
