What is Asbestos Over-cladding?

Asbestos is a naturally occurring fibrous material used in a wide range of building materials in the UK throughout the 1950s up until the 1980s. Over-cladding involves putting a new roof of metal or plastic sheets over the existing one. Over-cladding the roof won’t remove the asbestos, but displaying yellow warning signs inside the building will make it clear to the public to keep their distance.

The over-cladding of an asbestos roof is a cost-effective roof refurbishment process. It minimises the disruption at the site and reduces the costly disposal of the existing asbestos roof sheeting that must be sent to a licensed landfill.

At NWIR, we are fully qualified to undertake Asbestos Over-cladding in and around Greater Manchester. All our roofers are expertly trained on the requirements of working with asbestos; they can also identify the risks associated and how to deal with asbestos on roofs.

The Benefits Of Asbestos Over-cladding

Within the asbestos roof over-cladding process, the new roofing scheme is insulated to current warm roof regulations. This helps to make our clients’ roofs more thermally efficient, no matter the type of building.

Here are the benefits of asbestos over-cladding:
It’s cost-effective. It can be expensive to replace an entire roof and dispose of asbestos sheets, whereas over-cladding is a cheaper method of dealing with asbestos.
Thermal efficiency. The over-cladding process will bring the roof up to date with current warm roof regulations, making the building thermally efficient.
A stronger surface. Over-cladding a roof will make it more resistant to damage, so the need for regular maintenance will be reduced. If maintenance does need to be carried out, then the roof will bear more weight.
