Asbestos roof tiles

The agent said there is flaky white asbestos insulation in the property. What are the issues with asbestos, are there any health risks and does the HomeBuyer report cover this?

Asbestos was not banned until 1999 so houses built before that date may contain asbestos. Asbestos is a dangerous fibrous mineral. Chrysotile (White), Amosite (Brown) and Crocidolite (Blue) were commonly found in the building materials including powdery sprayed on coatings.

Asbestos was commonly used as it has good sound absorption qualities and it may be found in soffit boards. The main origins of asbestos were South Africa.

All forms are hazardous and might lead to lung cancer following prolonged exposure. Contrary to common perception, inhaling a single fibre is not deadly.

Should you find asbestos, you should be careful on no account to damage it and expert advice should be sought immediately. Removing it asbestos will probably be costly but must be conducted by professionals. Surveyors

cannot tell you whether there is asbestos on a Frinton On Sea home survey. Surveyors will note suspected asbestos and should suggest experts are consulted.

Roof defects identified during a survey

Mould caused problems at our old property - What should we look into during the survey?

This is frequently addressed by building surveyors. A large number of properties may be exposed to roofing problems, such as. From wind braces to slates, every part of the roof will be taken into account. Flat roofs are also known for the trouble they can cause, often the result of holes or cracks in the waterproof layer.

Given the high cost of major roof repairs like laying tar paper or felt, some homeowners may defer maintenance indefinitely. This makes both the cause and the consequences harder and even more expensive to treat when repairs do take place. A Frinton On Sea roofing specialist with positive reviews can provide a quote.
