Is there a fairly easy way to distinguish between asbestos corrugated
roofing sheet and other types? I'm not aiming to do anything drastic
with my garage roof but I'd quite like to know what it's made of. I
guess it's quite a few years old so it *could* be asbestos.
I'm really mostly interested so that if/when we sell I'll know what it
is and can make appropriate noises, it's in good condition so the risk
(if it's asbestos) is very small.
I've got a large barn with such a roof. It will need replacing soon. I
enquired a couple of years ago with my local council about what the
official procedure was. The environmental health department can come
and take a sample and test it (or get it tested - I don't think they
do it themselves). I can't remember if they charged for this but I
don't think they did.
Let us all know how you get on.
