The Asbestos Roof Replacement Project

The location was complex, with limited space for cranes and other lifting equipment. Like all asbestos roof replacement projects, we offer each client the opportunity for one of the ACR Roofing experienced directors to visit site and conduct an open discussion and information session for the staff, where we present our works procedure, Safe Work Method Statements, and Job Safety Analysis. WorkSafe inspected our works procedure and like usual were satisfied with all. Each and every asbestos roofing replacement, before any works commence, we notify WorkSafe of the asbestos removal, location, time and dates, and complete all necessary site inspections and final check measures. Furthermore, we organise access equipment, as well as engage an independent hygienist to provide asbestos clearances so that we can proceed with the roof replacement.

Full perimeter safety rail was installed, and once we eliminated all height concerns we loaded the materials onto the roof with the use of a mobile crane. As with every Asbestos Roofing Replacement project, the building must be completely vacant. Once the safety rail is installed, materials are loaded onto the roof, and the building is empty – our Melbourne roofers can commence their works. Each day onsite we remove an area of the asbestos roofing, and receive a clearance certificate before continuing. In this Melbourne roof replacement project, we installed safety mesh and 60mm roof insulation blanket, before laying the new roof. Our roofers in Melbourne installed new BlueScope Plain Zincalume roof materials, in a corrugated profile. We repeat the asbestos roofing removal and roof replacement process each day until the entire roof is complete. This process ensures the roof remains watertight at the end of each day. Finally, we seal the entire roof and an ACR Roofing director inspects the building.

This asbestos removal and roof replacement in Preston was sensitive, given the location, but one we were familiar with. Patrick was extremely impressed with the end results.
