Asbestos roof tile removal
in N. Ireland
6 replies 679 views
Looking for some local NI advice with regards to asbestos roof tiles. We has extension work done to the house, long story short we had cowboy builder so have had to pay someone else to fix and finish the work. Work is still ongoing. We found out while getting work fixed that our roof tiles were asbestos as they were nearing the end of their life and we would have to replace the roof sooner than later. This is a big kick in the teeth for us after paying twice for our extension work to be done and going through legal channels to recoup our original spend from said cowboy builder. We had got some asbestos tiles removed from inside the house last year and it cost alot of money for such a small area so I am really worried. Had anyone had similar experience in replacing asbestos roof? It is a typical 1950s bungalow, extension is flat roof. Any advice from any roofers on here would also be welcomed because we are considering that while we were at it should we look to increase roof height if we can. Thank you in advance!
