Garage Demolition Edinburgh

Garage Roofs Edinburgh provide garage demolition and removal services, including safe removal of asbestos garage roofs. Do you have an old garage that’s deteriorating or seldom used? Perhaps it needs a roof repair or is so outdated it should be removed entirely. With fewer people using garages these days, you might want to repurpose the space. Consider the positive impact reclaiming this area could have on your home and garden. Look at neighbouring properties to gather ideas that align with your preferences. Once you see the space wasted by the old garage, you’ll envision its potential for a more useful and attractive purpose.

If street parking is ample, you could transform the space into a lawn with decking and a patio, creating a welcoming family garden. Removing the garage might increase your home’s value, as potential buyers often view an unused garage as an expense. Additionally, remember that the materials in old garages can pose risks, such as asbestos in the roof.

Safe Asbestos Removal and Disposal

Asbestos from your roof needs to be securely sealed in an authorised container and taken to a SEPA licensed disposal facility. At this facility, it will be handled correctly and assigned a unique SEPA code. Our main disposal site is in Edinburgh. Due to its high toxicity and health risks, asbestos disposal usually costs more than disposing of other types of waste.

Remove Asbestos Roof Before Demolition

You might discover that your garage roof contains asbestos, especially if it’s a grey coloured corrugated material. This is a common indicator of asbestos presence. If you confirm its presence, you’ll likely want to arrange for its safe removal.

Asbestos Garage Demolition and Disposal

Asbestos remains a significant health risk in the UK, claiming thousands of lives each year. Inhaling its fibers can lead to severe lung damage and illnesses that may manifest many years after exposure. Strict protocols are in place for the safe removal and disposal of asbestos from garages. These procedures prioritise the health and safety of workers involved in the removal process.

Once a popular choice for garage construction due to its affordability and lightweight nature, asbestos was later found to be hazardous. Many buildings constructed up to 1990 may still contain asbestos in their garages. We are licensed to safely remove and dispose of these materials, ensuring the utmost care for our team and the environment.

Damaged structures pose an increased risk of asbestos fiber release, potentially spreading the hazard further. If your garage shows signs of damage or looks worn out, it’s advisable to consider its removal, and we’re here to assist with that task.

Old Garage Demolition Edinburgh

Being licensed waste carriers, we’ll clear the site of all old garage materials, leaving it clean and ready for your next project. Considering building a new garage in its place? We can also assist with preparing the base area, providing a flat, level surface tailored to the dimensions of your new garage.

Leaking / Damaged Garage Demolition Edinburgh

Your garage might have deteriorated due to water leaks, causing irreparable damage. Neglect and inadequate waterproofing can make garages susceptible to leaks. Common entry points for water include unsealed doors and unsealed concrete or brick floors and walls. Flat roofs, if not regularly maintained, can also contribute to leaking issues.

Often, garages aren’t a household priority and may lack proper insulation, exacerbating leak problems that go unnoticed for extended periods. Concrete’s porous nature can absorb water, leading to cracks that allow even more water ingress.

These leaks can result in significant damage, necessitating costly repairs. Additionally, any items stored in the garage could be damaged. While a garage adds value to your property, a leaking one can detract from its appeal to potential buyers.
