Top reasons to use an asbestos roof coating

When you disturb asbestos, fibres can be released and then inhaled into the lungs. Coating an asbestos roof involves an understanding of the regulatory issues around handling asbestos, as well as getting to the root of the leak and future proofing the structure of the roof. Asbestos roof coatings are highly reliable, yet easy to apply and so less expensive than over cladding or replacement. They're the ideal minimum fuss repair solution, and deliver exceptional water and chemical resistance, meaning more and more building owners are turning to our range of coatings to waterproof and protect their roof.

Coating systems vs. over cladding

Either way you get a result that's as good as having a new roof, but it's the durability and application of these two solutions that will make your mind up. Coatings can offer impressive guarantees of up to 20 years, and are easy to maintain, whereas over cladding is always at risk of rust and general decay. Coatings seal the roof, meaning corrosion can't take place. Over cladding also comes with some serious safety issues. In order to fasten new metal sheets on the roof, hundreds or thousands of holes have to be drilled into the asbestos cement, causing an alarming likeliness of asbestos fibre release. For this reason alone, large businesses are increasingly steering clear of over cladding for employee health reasons.
