Asbestos Roof Replacement Melbourne: Seaford

4500m2 of super six asbestos roof replacement in Seaford which has been slowly deteriorating, the roof leaks are causing internal grief and had only become worse in the past few months.

Over 65yrs since the asbestos roofing was installed on this large factory in Seaford, it had definitely come to its end of life. Like most things, they expire, start breaking down and causing problems… in this case, serious problems.

The operating business had implemented measures and precautions to prevent water accessing their equipment, similar to putting up an umbrella inside a warehouse. Unable to repair any asbestos roofing, they realised there was no other option but to have their roof replaced and engaged ACR Roofing.

Inductotherm manufactures and services induction melting furnaces, induction holding furnaces, pouring furnaces & induction heating equipment. Inside this warehouse contained very expensive equipment and materials, all of which was able to remain whilst our Melbourne roofing works took place.

ACR Roofing were able to remove a section each day and have the roof closed over at days end, this ensures all equipment and materials are secure and watertight. Our Melbourne roofers completed both the roof removal and roof replacement, eliminating the need for any subcontractors.

We were given 4 weeks to complete the entire asbestos roof replacement. Like all roofing projects, a lot of exercises are required before any works take place:

  • Organising and coordinating meetings, providing planned schedules and implementing all safety measures.
  • Access tower and perimeter safety rail installed, securing the entire building and eliminating any fall hazard.
  • All materials were craned onto the roof, engaging our regular crane company Associated cranes.
  • Once a section of the asbestos had been removed, we installed safety mesh , 60mm roof insulation blanket and last but not least the new BlueScope Colorbond roof.
  • Inductotherm chose to install Colorbond Shale Grey roof material and Colorbond Windspray wall cladding.
  • Throughout the warehouse Ampelite Wonderglas Gel Coated translucent sheeting was installed to provide natural light throughout.
  • Once the entire roof has been removed and replaced, the mobile crane returned and all materials were craned off and loaded into waiting waste skips.
  • Rhino Bins, our waste supplier and transporter, then transfers all asbestos roofing material to a certified EPA waste site.

Inductotherm were extremely impressed with our promise and being able to complete the entire asbestos roof replacement within the 4 week timeframe.

The roof and wall looks fantastic, and once again, another satisfied client.
