Asbestos Roof Replacement Melbourne: Moorabbin

Being experts in the field of Asbestos Roof Removal and Roof Replacement, our Melbourne roofers completed an asbestos roofing project on a warehouse in Moorabbin.

We always ensure we follow procedure, we inform WorkSafe of the asbestos roofing removal and complete all necessary site inspections and final check measures. Once we are satisfied by the results, we organise access equipment, as well as engage an independent hygienist to provide asbestos clearances.

Next, we install full perimeter safety rail (safety is number one!), we then load materials onto the asbestos roof. Usually when commencing works on a warehouse, we crane materials onto the roof. In this case however, we had restricted location and access, therefore we required a scissor lift to load all materials onto this asbestos roof! It is for this reason that we make sure to consider all aspects of the asbestos removal and roof replacement project to ensure it runs smoothly.

As with every Asbestos Roof Replacement project, the building must be completely vacant. Only then can we commence our works in a safely manner for all those not wearing the appropriate PPE.

Each day onsite we remove an area of the asbestos roofing and receive a clearance certificate before continuing. Next, we install safety mesh and 60mm roof insulation blanket, before laying the new roof. Our team installed new BlueScope Plain Zincalume roof materials, in a Corrugated profile.

We repeat the asbestos removal and roof replacements process each day until the entire roof is complete. This process ensures the roof remains watertight at the end of each day. We then install new BlueScope Zincalume slotted fascia guttering, flashings and PVC downpipes. Finally, we seal the entire roof and one of our Melbourne roofing directors inspects the building.

This Asbestos Roofing Removal Project is now complete, and safe for the owner and tenants to occupy the building. Our roofers have eliminated any potential problems the original asbestos roofing would pose for the owners.
