Thread: Looking for someone local to re sheet a shed

    Looking for someone local to re sheet a shed

    We have a shed that requires re cladding, it has an Asbestos roof and corrigated sides but the plan is to strip it back and wrap it box profile sheets.

    Anyone in the highlands know of a company that do such a thing?

    Im usually game at tackling these kind of jobs but the shed is 20mx17m and goes all the way to the sky.

    Dan you have a pm

    Billy it will be cement sheets most companies will tell you is is asbestos when it is a cement based sheet ,unless it is 50 years old or older the content of asbestos is slightly higher .

    But no licence is required to remove or work on them , skip companies always try it on big time .

    It is not overly difficult to remove the acm (assuming it is) under wet conditions cut bolts and remove sheets to safe working area intact , double wrap and dispose of via authorised waste carrier to approved dump. As Bob says no licence needed and most costly part is disposal. If you are concerned about the work at height aspect then it is best to get a suitable roofing/demolition or asbestos company in to take care of it for you who will have the necesssary work platforms.

    Be careful with new cladding as if it is single skin and the shed is not well ventilated, you could suffer condensation on cold mornings where ice/dampness on underside melts and constantly drips onto your gear. Use a vapour barrier over the rafters/purlins to reduce this, unless you propose an insulated roof and even then on exceptionally cold nights can still get it with insulated roofs.

    If the regulations are the same in Scotland as they are in England A farmer who removes an asbestos cement sheet roof he is allowed to bury the waste sheets on the farm
    AT THE AGE OF 50 I DECIDED I WAS GOING TO GROW OLD F***ING DISGRACEFULLY

    Bob, I was led to believe the guidelines on the removal of asbestos were very strict.

    Is it not a job for the specialist as the costs & equipmet level can be huge. ?

    I do know it's graded / lower grade no licence required,but the higher grade

    has to go through a transfer station, hence the rise in cost.

    Rgds.Buck.

    PS. Firsttimer, +1 on the condensation point it's a pain in the ass,

    and going by the size of Dan's shed it would take a bit of heating.

    Althought I'm sure Scottish Power would'nt mind!!!!

    Billy these are the guidelines, that i work by, if only the skip companies would do the same .
    At the moment in time all Asbestos Cement sheets are unlicensed long may it stay that way using licensed companies costs a small fortune due to there processes of removal.

    Sikadog, are you having a laugh?????

    Assuming the Regulations are the same in England/Wales as they are in Scotland, any farmer burying asbestos on their land is committing an offence under the Environmental Protection Act and Waste Management (England and Wales) Regulations and subject to a fine.

    http://asbestosindustrynews.co.uk/20...-on-farm-land/

    Farmers also have a duty under the Control of Abestos Regulations 2006 to manage any farm buildings containing asbestos as they are deemed to be duty holders under the Regulations

    the asbestos isnt a problem, we have that covered.

    what I was looking for was a company that sells and installs box profile sheeting.

    look for local sheeting and cladding firms on yell.com Dan, is the existing steel/frame in good condition ? I would get a few quotes as well because a lot of firms are putting in very competitive prices the now to keep afloat.
