Professional Asbestos Shingle Removal in Atlanta, GA and Nearby Cities

Asbestos shingles are one of the most common asbestos-containing materials found on residential properties. If your home was built before the mid 1980s, there is a good chance that your roof or siding shingles could contain asbestos.

What are asbestos shingles?

Asbestos shingles are roof or wall shingles made with asbestos cement board. These shingles were mass-produced from the 1930s to 1980s because they were a cheap and efficient building material.

Asbestos-cement shingles were so popular because they were durable and resilient and had natural insulation and warp-resistant properties. This made them ideal for roof protection.

Not every physical property of asbestos shingles is positive though. Soon, the medical industry became aware that asbestos fibers were extremely harmful when inhaled, and it was therefore made illegal for use in construction materials.

Why do I need to remove asbestos shingles?

Exposure to asbestos fibres in any capacity is not safe. Asbestos inhalation has been linked to many health issues, including mesothelioma cancer, asbestosis, and lung cancer. Asbestos fibres do not break down in the lungs, causing permanent scarring and disease.

Fortunately, asbestos shingles do not pose the same threat as friable asbestos products that break up easily. However, damaged or deteriorating shingles can be very harmful and should be inspected and removed from the premises.

Can I remove asbestos shingles myself?

Asbestos shingles should not be disturbed without proper safety measures in place. The cannot be broken, sanded, cut, drilled or sawed. Because they are both delicate and dangerous, it is not recommended that you handle them yourself.

To ensure the safety of not only yourself, but anyone in close proximity, it’s important to contact a certified asbestos removal contractor. These certified companies, like Asbestos Removal PRO, know how to safely remove and replace asbestos shingles while following all the health laws and safety regulations.

    I needed to get 9" asbestos tile and black mastic removed from my basement prior to selling my house. I talked to Mario on Friday and got a quick quote. I usually try to get a 2nd quote, but the other guys never even called me back. … More Mario's quote was right in the middle of what I expected it to be, so it seemed very reasonable.
    My wife and I made a counteroffer on the house that night, and it got accepted the next morning. One of the terms was getting this stuff out. So on Saturday morning I called Mario. 8 hours after a Saturday morning call, Mario had a team there in full gear taking care of the problem. Another visit on Sunday to wrap up; a visit on Monday morning to finish and verify; and it's over!
    Everything was done 3 days after the first call. I didn't have to deal with it myself, and I don't have to worry about it anymore. Mario was easy and his crew moves fast. I hope to not deal with this again, but I will call Mario if I do. It's hard to find people that get the job done this fast and easy. Thanks Mario! I appreciate it. This will make the sale a lot easier.

    Thanks to Asbestos Removal Pro, I was able to quickly determine that my new home’s popcorn ceiling did not contain asbestos. This was a welcome result but most importantly I was confident in Mario’s explanation of what needed to be done … More for safety’s sake. I can now move forward with renovations without any worries. I would definitely recommend this company for their honesty and professionalism!

    We had a wonderful experience working with Mario! He was able to fit us into his schedule the same day we reached out to him, and we received our results within 24 hours. Would encourage anyone to use him.

    I can not begin to tell you how much Mario’s work ethic and communication have helped us during the long process of a complicated long-distance renovation in Kennesaw GA. Please consider him when you are looking for an amazing civil engineer, … More contractor, asbestos specialist, mold specialist or project manager. He works out of state as well and is networked with any sub-contractors we have needed, from clean-out to roofing and electrical. Kim MacKellar
