We are able to dismantle brick and stone single, double or battery garages. In fact we can offer total site clearance of all types of garages, sheds, structures and outbuildings and you don't have to buy a new garage from us in order to obtain a competitive quotation!

Asbestos Garages Removal Or Corrugated Asbestos Roofing Sheets
The term asbestos evokes strong feelings particularly if traces might be found in around your home.
Until recent years, concrete bonded "white" asbestos was used in the construction of sectional garages and further back whole buildings were clad in this material.
After a while this material will begin to break down into its natural form, it is the airborne dust that must be avoidable at all costs.
It's often hard to determine whether a corrugated roof contains any asbestos but it's a sensible precaution to assume the worst.
If you're fortunate, your local authority may provide you with assistance in disposing of these items, however smashing sheets so that they fit into a rubble sack is not a solution.
Only licensed contractors are permitted to transport this material, fewer companies have the facility to dispose at commercial landfill sites. Check the credentials of a contractor on-line on the Environment Agency register or challenge the workmen to produce copies of their licenses. Before the work begins ask that you be forwarded relevant copies of consignment notes ensuring that your building has been properly disposed of.
Dismantling a sectional garage is not a job for amateurs; a foolhardy approach can result in serious injury as well as contributing to the release of asbestos. You would be wise to employ only workers who are familiar with the construction of these buildings.
Don't expect any operatives to be dressed as NASA astronauts but do expect gloves and face masks. A change of clothes is recommended.
On a warm day the roof maybe doused to keep any dust down but the main objective is to keep the removed sheets whole and as a consequence the dismantled building is not required to be covered during transport.
