If your home or commercial building was made in the 1950s, it’s highly likely that it has asbestos roofing or asbestos sheets as asbestos was a majorly popular building material at the time.
The removal of asbestos and roof replacements are a job that should only ever be conducted by professionals to keep your family or employees and community safe from exposure. Exposure to asbestos can increase the risk of developing various types of cancer including cancer in the lungs (including the lining), ovaries and larynx so should never be attempted as a D.I.Y project.

Back in the early days of when asbestos was being removed, some people would try to apply PVA glue to every surface in a building during removal to catch fibres floating in the air which would reduce fibre levels in the air when tested. We do NOT use PVA glue as a solution to asbestos and no reputable removalist should as it is completely ineffective and unsafe. PVA glue degrades over time, allowing the asbestos fibres to be released into the air and if anything were to be disturbed in time it would also immediately release the fibres. If a company tries to offer this as a solution, it’s massive red flag and they should be reported to the appropriate authorities.
The only safe way to deal with asbestos is to completely remove and replace it. In fact, we’re so confident in our methods that we have independent hygiene service conducted on every finished job to test for asbestos fibres.
