Garage Removal Edinburgh

Garage Roofs Edinburgh provide garage removal and demolition services alongside our safe asbestos garage roof removal. Do you have an old garage that’s deteriorating, rarely used, or perhaps in need of extensive repairs? With the changing times, many people are finding garages less essential. Maybe you’re considering repurposing the space for something more useful or aesthetically pleasing?

Taking down an old garage can open up a world of possibilities for your home and garden. Observing what your neighbours have done with similar spaces might inspire you. Once you realise the potential that unused garage space holds, you can envision transforming it into something more fitting and attractive than an outdated, underutilised structure.

If street parking is ample in your area, you might envision a lush lawn, complemented by decking and a patio, creating a welcoming family garden. Removing the garage could even enhance your property’s value. Potential buyers often view old, deteriorated garages as a future expense or hassle. Plus, if your garage contains hazardous materials like an asbestos roof, removal becomes not just a choice but a safety necessity.

Safe Asbestos Removal and Disposal

Asbestos from your roof must be safely sealed in an approved container and transported to a SEPA licensed disposal facility. At the disposal centre, it will be properly handled, and a unique SEPA code will be assigned. Our primary disposal site is located in Edinburgh. Waste removal companies typically charge more for asbestos disposal due to its high toxicity and health risks compared to other types of waste.

Asbestos Garage Roof Removal

You might discover that your garage roof contains asbestos, especially if it’s a grey corrugated material. If you identify this type of roofing, it’s a clear indication of asbestos presence. After confirming its presence, you’ll likely consider having it safely removed.

Asbestos Garage Removal and Disposal

Asbestos remains a significant health risk in the UK, causing thousands of deaths annually. Inhaling asbestos fibres can lead to severe lung damage and illnesses that may manifest many years later. Due to its dangers, strict guidelines are in place for the safe removal and disposal of asbestos from garages.

Though once popular for its affordability and lightweight properties, asbestos was later found to be hazardous. Many structures, especially those built before 1990, may still contain asbestos. We’re licensed to safely remove and dispose of these materials, prioritising both the safety of our team and environmental protection.

Damages to an asbestos containing structure can release fibres, increasing the risk of exposure. If your garage shows signs of damage or wear, it’s advisable to consider its removal, and we’re here to assist with that process.

Old Garage Removal Edinburgh

If your garage is showing signs of damage or is simply old and deteriorating, we’re here to assist with its removal. Whether it’s a single, double, or a larger workshop garage, we can handle its dismantling and disposal. Our team conducts a thorough risk assessment to identify any asbestos in the walls or roof. If asbestos is present, we ensure its safe removal with specialised procedures.

As licensed waste carriers, we’ll also clear the site of all old garage materials. Considering a new garage in its place? We can help prepare a flat, level base tailored to the dimensions of your new build, offering a comprehensive solution for your garage needs.

Wooden Garage Removal

If you own a wooden garage that’s seen better days, reaching a point where repair or restoration isn’t feasible, we’re here to help. Over time, wooden garages can deteriorate without proper maintenance, leading to significant structural issues. This will not only detract from the appearance of your property but also pose a safety risk to your surroundings.

We’ll assess your garage, starting with the roof—a critical area that can become unstable and pose a hazard if not secure. Our inspection will cover potential damage, rot, or insect infestations both inside and out. If you have items stored inside, we may need them moved temporarily to conduct a thorough assessment. Additionally, we’ll check the condition of your garage sills, wall frames, and gutters to ensure everything is in order.

Leaking / Damaged Garage Removal Edinburgh

If your garage has fallen into disrepair due to leaks, the damage may be beyond repair. Garages often suffer from leaks due to neglect and insufficient waterproofing measures. Common culprits include unsealed doors and unsealed concrete or brick walls and floors. Flat roofs, if not regularly maintained, can also exacerbate leaking issues.

Garages are frequently overlooked in household maintenance and may lack proper insulation, leading to undetected leaks over time. Concrete, being porous, can absorb water, potentially causing cracks that allow even more water infiltration. This can result in extensive damage requiring costly repairs and damage to items stored inside.

A leaking garage not only diminishes the utility of your property but also detracts from its curb appeal and overall value to potential buyers.

Professional Garage Removal Edinburgh

Our garage removal service stands out for its professionalism and efficiency. In just a day, our experienced team will safely and effectively demolish and remove your old garage, leaving the area clean and ready for your next project.

With years of expertise in garage removal, we approach each job with precision and care. Our structured process involves systematically dismantling your garage from top to bottom. This includes removing timber, glass, concrete, steel, windows, and roofing materials, including asbestos if present.

Safety and Standards

We prioritise safety and adhere to the highest standards while working meticulously to prevent any damage to the surrounding area. You can trust us to handle the entire debris removal process, ensuring everything from your old garage is safely disposed of.

After removal, we take the extra step to clean and tidy the area, following local council regulations for disposal or recycling of materials where possible. If your garage is connected to electricity, we can arrange for an electrician to disconnect it before the dismantling begins. Once that’s done, we’ll proceed with the safe removal of the old structure.

Legislation and Legal Standards

Rest assured, we stay current with all the latest legislation and legal standards, including those related to working at heights, lifting heavy objects, premature collapse, and asbestos handling. Before starting any work, we’ll conduct a comprehensive building survey and risk assessment. If your garage roof contains asbestos sheets, we’ll ensure their safe disposal in line with guidelines from the Scottish Environment Protection Agency.
