Asbestos Garage Removal

Asbestos Garage Removal is the process of removing any outbuilding construction of asbestos containing materials, leaving behind just the concrete slab or brick walls. Before asbestos was discovered to be hazardous to health the product was used to build garages as it was cheap, light and provided good insulation from the elements. Asbestos garages and outbuilding are very common across the United Kingdom and usually contain corrugated asbestos cement roof sheets and internal or external asbestos cement panels.

Whether your looking to have an asbestos garage removed in full or just asbestos roof removal so that you can replace it with something non-toxic, we can help.


Does your garage or outbuilding contain asbestos?

Any property built up until the 2000 may have an asbestos garage on site (including council houses) and it is recommended that you source a Health & Safety Executive certified asbestos garage removal company to remove and dispose of the material. Doing so means that you eradicate any risk to human health whilst at the same time ensure that the environment is protected. Modern concrete garages no longer include asbestos in their roof construction favouring to use reinforced cement fibre. Neither material may be recognized by any marks and only laboratory analysis shows if asbestos is present.

It is a common misconception that a garage constructed of asbestos can only be carried out by a local council. In fact, local authorities rarely carry out such work. Because garages constructed from asbestos are usually made from asbestos cement, or asbestos insulating board they must be disposed of by a professional asbestos company.


How much does asbestos garage removal cost?

Prices start at £480.00+vat for an asbestos cement (chrysotile) garage roof removal and disposal, and vary depending on the type and amount of asbestos present. Chrysotile asbestos products do not usually require a notification to the HSE as they are a bonded material and therefore less likely to release fibres. It is important to ensure that guideslines are still followed and a professional asbestos removal company will understand all the necessary processes to safely eradicate the material.

Sometimes garages were lined with asbestos insulating board (AIB) to insulate them. There will be an increased charge if the garage contains AIB or any other materials which requires a notification to the HSE.

All asbestos garage removal contracts are undertaken in consideration of all Regulations and Laws. The asbestos isn’t broken or drilled and therefore poses no risk to the public. The recovered asbestos is wrapped in a specialist heavy-duty polyurethane and then carefully removed from site when it is disposed of in a specialist asbestos waste centre.

Asbestos cannot be recycled and it is an offence to reuse it. Asbestos must never be crushed or broken by an unqualified person. You should never mix asbestos with other types of waste or dispose of it in your domestic refuse collection. Remember: The law says that material should always be presumed as containing asbestos unless it can be confirmed otherwise by a competent person.
