Hi all, just wondering if anyone has any recommendations or information about re-roofing?
Our neighbours are looking to get their original asbestos cement roof replaced but have not had much luck getting reasonable quotes. I’m also interested in replacing the asbestos roof as ours has developed a slight leak and will need replacing fairly soon too.
Down the road some people used a company that promotes itself as specialising in BISF renovation but were not satisfied. I won’t give the name of the company but it hasn’t been mentioned on this site, though I did recognise one of the example houses on its website as being in Bath. Anyway for £11 000 they reported the asbestos roofing was smashed up in the front garden rather than being properly handled and that the company wanted to charge extra to finish the job! Others have wanted to overclad the asbestos, which doesn’t seem like a good idea.
The council says they have no records of who re-roofed its BISF houses in around 1999 before they were transferred to the housing association.
