Why Asbestos Is Such A Problem

We now know that asbestos is a dangerous and highly toxic substance, but prior to the 1990’s, it was widely used in New Zealand roofs, ceilings, and wall cladding. Asbestos was a popular material given its heat resistant and durable nature. As such, many commercial properties built between the mid-1940’s and the mid-1980’s could contain asbestos.

Asbestos in Auckland’s Commercial Buildings

Asbestos is a serious health hazard and there is no safe level of exposure. Commercial properties often have frequent minor renovations over the years to meet changing needs of the business and seemingly insignificant actions such as drilling or cutting a hole can release asbestos dust into the air, causing a major health hazard. General wear and tear and foot traffic over the roof will also lead to deterioration of your roof or cladding, exposing the asbestos.

Dealing with Asbestos Removal Safely

The safety of your staff is first and foremost, which is why there are strict regulations in place for the removal and disposal of asbestos. The team at Topline partner with licensed, specialist asbestos removers to assess the situation and formulate a customised plan for your business to remove the material safely. Buildings are usually scaffolded and shrink-wrapped for protection and only the removal specialists would be allowed on your property during this time.

Asbestos Removal and Replacement, Auckland

After removal, sites are investigated by an independent inspector to confirm that all asbestos has been removed and the building is safe to re-enter. Upon clearance, the Topline Roofing team can supply and install a new roof and cladding as required. Topline specialises in long run metal roofs, which are the most popular roofing product used as they are durable, lightweight, and resilient.
