Asbestos Eaves in Melbourne

Eaves are among the most common parts of the house where asbestos is present. They are the sections of a roof that overhang or meet the walls of a structure. They are the protruding part of the roof that allow snow and rain to slide and fall from the roof to the ground.

In hot climates, a wide eave can provide shade for interior spaces. On the other hand, it provides shelter from the weather during the rainy season. While it seems like eaves play a vital role in your home’s structure, they do hold a dirty little secret. Decades ago, the eaves were constructed using bonded asbestos sheeting. While some eaves contain only 10 to 15% of asbestos, others have up to 40%. So, when should asbestos eaves be removed?
