When Is Asbestos Roof Removal Required?
Asbestos removal from roofs may not be mandatory, but it is helpful when minding about the health of people around the affected area. The most affected are the ones directly inhaling its harmful fibers, constantly. Interestingly, the severe symptoms do not kick in till after 2 or 3 decades. However, the result from inhaling is severe damage to the lungs and abdominal cavity due to scarring from the fibers.
Asbestos was widely used in homes and structures from the late 1930s to the 70s, when it became clear that it posed some health hazards and its usage was discouraged and even banned. Originally, it was used due to its awesome fire resistant properties. Being a fibrous mineral, it has great strength and is durable. This makes it good for fireproofing and in providing insulation to structures.

Repair, is not as commonly sought after as removal procedures. The repair procedure requires two methods, covering or sealing. Covering is done by placing a firm material like duct tape over the area containing asbestos. Sealing requires treatment of the asbestos with a sealant for binding or coating of the dangerous material to prevent fiber and dust release into the air.
