Encapsulation: a temporary alternative
In some cases, immediate removal may not be the best option. Asbestos roof encapsulation can serve as a temporary solution to prevent asbestos fibres from becoming airborne. It is, however, essential to note that encapsulation is not a long-term solution and that eventual removal and replacement are necessary for safety reasons.

Health risks of asbestos
Asbestos, a naturally occurring fibrous mineral, was widely used in construction until the late 20th century. However, it’s now well-known that prolonged exposure to asbestos fibres can lead to serious health issues, including lung disease and cancer. These fibres, when inhaled, can become lodged in the lungs, causing inflammation and scarring over time.
