It’s not uncommon to find asbestos cement materials used in the construction of garages. Asbestos was a material utilised in a variety of industrial and construction processes throughout the 20th century because it was a relatively cheap building material possessing a range of favourable properties. These properties made it an ideal material to use in the construction of garages . It was able to withstand erosion, decay, heat and weathering and was also lightweight and affordable.Although it was sometimes used in the construction of the walls of a garage it’s more frequently found in the corrugated sheets used on the roof.
Asbestos cement is the asbestos-containing material used in roofing. It consists of approximately 85% cement and 15% asbestos and, generally speaking, doesn’t pose a risk providing that it’s in good condition. This is because the asbestos itself is bound in a matrix of other non asbestos materials making it more difficult for fibres to be readily released.However, fibre releases can occur when the material deteriorates or becomes damaged. Accidental damage or removal of the sheets can create a situation where fibres may be released and become airborne. These fibres can then be inhaled and enter into the lungs which can cause serious damage and potential life-threatening illnesses such as Lung cancer, mesothelioma and asbestosis.The condition of the roof will inevitably deteriorate over time with weather conditions and a lack of maintenance causing cracks and scrapes to occur leading to an increased likelihood that fibres may be released. The more cracks in your roof, the higher the chance that the asbestos may be disturbed.
