 Part 1: Dangers of ACM roofs

Asbestos was widely used between the 1940s until the 1980s in commercial and residential buildings in Gold Coast. It was added to roofing and siding products to increase their strength, durability, and provide insulation property. Due to the extensive use of asbestos-containing material (ACM) in ceiling parts in the past, many old buildings need careful roof removal during reconstruction, sale, and demolition.

Even thought the use of ACM roofing products was prohibited since 2003 throughout Australia, you can still find this hazardous substance in many buildings in Queensland including, industrial, commercial, and residential buildings.

Here is why you need help from a professional to perform asbestos roof removal Gold Coast projects:

1. Potential health hazards from fibrous roofing materials

When roofing products are in good condition and remain intact, they are commonly non-friable and not hazardous. However, aging and weather can weaken these materials and make them friable. Fibres are often released from friable materials and they can become airborne. When breathed in, fibres can lodge within human’s lungs and cause severe illnesses such as asbestosis and mesothelioma. Nowadays, More than six hundred new cases of asbestos-related diseases are diagnosed every year in Australia.

‘Between 1978 and 2010, heavy exposure to fibres caused an estimated 40 thousand lung cancer deaths and 16 thousand mesothelioma deaths. ‘ – WHO

2. When you are planning a demolition project

Asbestos is usually found in ceilings and since the ban on asbestos only really came into effect in 2003, it is still found in the ceilings of many buildings that get demolished.  Thus, if you plan on demolishing a building that was built before 1990, then you will probably have to have a special team of experts come in and remove all of the fibrous roofing materials before the rest of the demolition work can continue. Removing fibrous roofs can only be done by trained experts and competent contractors will help you to dispose of the removed asbestos as well.

3. A license is required to remove ACM roofs in Queensland

You have to remember that performing a DIY roof removal project yourself is not only dangerous but also illegal. National, regional, and local laws regulate the procedure for asbestos roof removal. Only licensed professionals are allowed to carry out asbestos removal in an area that exceeds 10 m2. Furthermore, only experts have the right equipment, knowledge, and experience that are required to remove asbestos safely and completely.

The legal requirements to handling ACMs are:

  • Only an A-class or B-class licensed removalist can remove non-friable materials
  • Only an A-class licensed removalist can remove friable materials

Important note: Avoid breaking, disturbing, cutting or removing fibrous roofing products alone!
