What is Asbestos?
I am pretty sure not a lot of people know about Asbestos roofing sheets. Asbestos is a naturally occurring fibrous silicate mineral. It is a form of mineral and hydrous silicate of magnesium and is currently used as one of the most patronized roofing materials in Nigeria.
Aside aluminum roofing sheets and other types of roofing sheets, asbestos roofing has in recent times become an alternative for many building contractors.
Due to its fantastic thermal qualities and being extremely fire retardant, it is not surprising that asbestos has been used extensively in roofing and insulation in some parts of Nigeria. Cement sheets are one of the most commonly used roofing products that the mineral is found in, and there are still a large number of buildings around the country that have an asbestos cement sheet roof.
The problems with the roof sheets occur as they deteriorate with age and consequently become more brittle.
