Asbestos Roof Conversions to Colorbond® steel

Many older homes have asbestos in their roofing. In the past, asbestos was used in many building products because it added strength and durability. When medical science realized that it could cause severe health problems, builders stopped using it in the late 70’s early 80’s. Today, asbestos is no longer used and has been outlawed in most countries. In fact, if you any have asbestos in your, we need to take great care to remove and dispose of it properly so that your family, friends and neighbors don’t wind up breathing the dangerous fibers.

Over the years, many homes and buildings with asbestos products have gradually had it removed and replaced it with other, more stable products. We, at Joe Haffer Roofing, have found one of the best materials is Colorbond® steel.  Not only is this is a durable product that offers years of solid protection, it can also be customised to give your home’s current style and colour and great facelift.
