Could Garage Built In 2003 Have Asbestos Roof?

Postby Chumleywarner » Tue Jan 16, 2018 11:51 am

Hi folks. I've been looking for an answer to a question about my a garage and I've not been able to get one. I thought someone on here might be able to help.

We bought our house last year. It has a concrete garage with what looks like corrugated concrete sheets on the roof. It was built in 2003 and I have the original invoice. Unfortunately, the company who built it no longer exists.

The home survey we had done when we bought the house says it has an asbestos roof. I thought the use of this was stopped in 1999? Surely this is a mistake by the surveyor?

I can't tell the difference between asbestos and the concrete sheets to be honest.

Any advice would be appreciated before I send a bit off for testing.
