Asbestos was utilized in building materials – insulation, paint, fencing, siding, cement, bricks, plumbing pipes, spray coatings, and gaskets. Some brand roofing tiles produced before 1980 had an asbestos base.
The Environmental Protection Agency “EPA” advises against updating, replacing, and repairing roofing systems on homes built in 1980 and before without asbestos testing. This is just an extra step that could protect you and your family as well as roofing contractors from asbestos exposure.
Residential Asbestos Roof Removal
Residential asbestos roof removal is a complex process completed by licensed contractors. Our Asbestos Removal CT contractors have decades of experience in the roofing industry. We understand the importance of taking special care to remove asbestos-based roofing tiles. The goal is always to protect our workers and clients from exposure to asbestos fibers.
Asbestos exposure can lead to respiratory diseases like mesothelioma. The condition scars the lining of the abdomen and lungs. Peritoneal mesothelioma is generally secondary to asbestosis. Asbestos fibers are long and sharp, allowing them to get lodged in the lining of the lungs. The immune system detects the asbestos fibers as foreign antigens. The lining may become irritated, requiring immediate medical treatment. Coughing can help dislodge the asbestos fibers from the lining of the lungs. Unfortunately, the damage is already done. When the lining of the lining becomes scarred, lung function can become compromised.
Utilizing a skilled asbestos removal team is the best way to ensure no one in your household is left dealing with mesothelioma. Our contractors utilize the latest PPE gear and equipment to safely remove asbestos roofing tiles.
The asbestos roofing tiles are transported to a local landfill for proper disposal. The roofing team handles the removal and disposal.

When To Employ An Asbestos Removal Team For A Roofing System?
Once it is determined the roofing shingles are made of asbestos, the homeowner should request an inspection. Our company offers free quotes for asbestos removal for roofing systems. A trained inspector assesses the roof to determine the amount of labor, type of equipment, and safety gear needed to complete the asbestos removal. Extensive roofing systems generally require more resources. The inspector consults with the client after the inspection is complete.
Our certified asbestos roof removal experts are on standby to answer your questions. Our office hours are Monday through Friday and some weekends.
Safety Asbestos Roofing Shingle Disposal
Most landfills in Connecticut accept asbestos roofing shingles. We will verify this with your local landfill before the removal is implemented. Special precautions are taken when transporting asbestos-building materials to garbage dumps, waste drop-off centers, and landfills.
Our goal is to protect the environment, our workers, and the landfill ground crew throughout the disposal process. Asbestos becomes dangerous once it is disturbed. We strive to secure the fibers to keep them from becoming suspended in the air.
