IRM Roofing in Walsall was tasked to carry out asbestos roof replacement in Sutton Coldfield, Birmingham, on behalf of a local property maintenance company. Moss and overgrowth of vegetation from trees, seedlings and lichen had grown into the existing 200 square metre asbestos cement roof, making it porous.
We dispatched an IRM Roofing three man team over a one week period to strip off the existing low risk asbestos cement roof (containing 10% chrysotile), load into specified skip for removal from site by registered waste company, and replace with metal roof cladding containing anti-condensation layer (non-drip roof panels eliminating condensation) at the request of the client.
During the works, the overgrowth of trees needed cutting back and some roof timbers had rotted and needed replacing. A barrier tape was also required for the timber to stop the moisture being sucked from the wood onto the anti-drip material. Extra care was taken along the 35 metre long all connected roof not to impede tenants or harm their belongings that were stored inside the garages.
