Over time, many businesses may need to replace their commercial roofs. While most commercial roofing systems are made for long-term use, many can develop problems well before their life expectancies.

Asbestos was once commonly used as building material before the dangers to health were widely known. The material is made of naturally occurring fibrous silicate minerals made up of tiny fibres. It is strong and heat resistant, which is why it was widely used in a variety of different products such as roofing, cement sheets and pipes, and many others.
Since December 2003, asbestos and all products containing it have been banned – they can’t be imported, stored, supplied, sold, installed, used or reused. The ban, however, doesn’t extend to asbestos-containing products in existing installations such as asbestos roofing or sheeting. Australian homes built before 1990 may contain asbestos. In this post, we look at some of the most common health risks that can come from being exposed to asbestos.
