Sheds & Garages

My house has an asbestos garage. Is it safe to use?

The garage or shed in question would be safe to use providing that the roof, and or walls are in satisfactory condition and are encapsulated internally. If there is any damage to the asbestos this will cause fibres to be released and further the spread of asbestos.

In addition, if the inside of the roof is not encapsulated with paint it will also begin to degrade and release fibres into the area especially after abrasion or knocks.

If the garage is damaged and looks to be in a relatively poor condition you should consider removal and can contact us for a free quotation.
