How to fix your leaking asbestos roof

Asbestos roof repair? Sounds complicated, right? 

Yet that water's going to keep on dripping, ruining your property.

That's why we made our kits so quick and easy to apply...AND still more effective than the bitumen or acrylic based solutions on the shelves today. 

You get a watertight asbestos roof after just a simple application.

1. Clean

2. Prime

3. Apply Crack Repair Tape

First off, a few notes on safety:

  • Ensure your roof is structurally stable and that you're safe at all times throughout the repair
  • Check out the HSE Guidelines on working with asbestos. These are brilliant little guides that'll keep you safe up there
  • Got any questions? Get in touch and send us some pictures of your project

How to clean your asbestos roof

This is more like 'how to make your repair last for longer'. A good thorough clean is the way to a watertight asbestos roof.

Use a soft brush to remove all moss, dirt and grime from the affected area. Moss is a common downfall for a once perfectly weatherproof roof, and removing it is an important start to the repair. You should be left with an area free from growths and mould. 

For cracks, it's best if you apply the asbestos repair tape to the full length of the sheet, so a strip going up the sheet needs to be cleaned too.

Next up, is the washing. Yes, there's a bit of scrubbing but it's made easy with ISO Paint's A-Clean, a biocide especially designed for cleaning roofs and killing moss and spores. This powerful detergent stops growths from forming under the repair, the key to long-life weatherproofing. Mix 1 part A Clean to 50 parts water. Then dip a large brush in and scrub the area. Keep the area damp to avoid asbestos fibres becoming airborne.

How to prime your asbestos roof

Once the area is all clean and completely dry, you can move on to priming. Like all porous surfaces, your repair area needs priming. This ensures strong adhesion and reliable waterproofing. Open up the tin of AT S Primer and apply generously to the crack and surrounding area. Coat at least 5cm either side of the crack. As we're dealing with cracks in the asbestos sheets, it's best to repair the whole length of the sheet. For priming this means applying the primer for the whole length, even if the crack appears in just a part of it. You should end up with a strip running up and down from the crack.

How to apply an asbestos roof tape to your roof

Wait for the primer to dry before reaching for the tape. Unroll and cut to size. Where sheets overlap, it's best to but the tape right up against the upper sheet, or tuck it underneath. Apply all along the crack and beyond, putting pressure on all parts of the tape to ensure adhesion. This foil backed tape goes butyl first, so the foil faces the sky.

The foil will protect the butyl from UV rays, making your repair last longer. And the tough wide butyl will instantly seal that crack, stopping your leak today.

Forget the expense of contractors and asbestos dismantling and disposal. These are DIY kits that can save you time and money and make your repair quick, easy and effective in the long run. 

So, you know you've got a leaking roof, but what else do you know about your asbestos roof?

  • Can you see any holes? If so, how big are they?
  • Can you see any cracks? Are they just hairline ones or bigger?
  • Got both holes and cracks in your asbestos roof?
  • Have you got any generally porous areas where liquid is seeping through?
  • Is rain coming through the boltheads?
  • Is it an unknown leak?

'I've got holes in my asbestos roof'

Not to worry. You can pop a fibreglass style repair patch over the hole to completely seal it. These are called SpeedPatches and they're perfect for covering holes in asbestos roofs and remaining waterproof in the long run. Having been used for years to seal holes in roofs of all kinds, they're backed up by a reliable service history. Plus they're super easy to use.

The SpeedPatches can be cut to size and used on holes from miniscule sizes up to 22cm x 12cms, although the bigger the size the less the SpeedPatch has to grip onto either iside of the hole, which could affect longevity. There are three different sizes of kit so you can find the perfect match for your project.

As well as SpeedPatches, you'll need some A-Clean and UV Curing resin to properly prepare the area. You can get everything you need, as well as gloves, brushes and a guide with the Asbestos roof and gutter hole repair kit

'I've got cracks in my asbestos roof'

Easy. Pop some tough rubber butyl tape over the crack after a quick prime.

This kit uses the foil backed butyl tape which means the rubber won't break down after relentless sun exposure.

'I've got rain coming through the bolt heads in my asbestos roof'

Forget asbestos disposal fees and sleep easy knowing you've saved yourself heaps of time and money. Bolts in asbestos roofs can often be the cause of roof leaks, and many people are led to believe that replacement or overclad are the only options. The bolt holes can expand after years of temperature changes and let your roof down. That's why we've dedicated this asbestos roof repair to sealing your bolt holes.

Unlike vulnerable bitumen or acrylic based repairs, this 6mm thick butyl tape has the durability to waterproof your roof in the long run. Coupled with the UV resistant and reinforced StopGap, this butyl provides a watertight seal around the whole bolt head. You can get everything you need to seal your boltheads and weatherproof your roof with the Asbestos Roof Bolts Repair Kit. 

'I've got an unknown leak on my asbestos roof'

Moss, dirt and grime can conceal exactly why your roof is leaking. Under all that dirt there could be holes, cracks and generally damaged sheets, all contributing to your problem leak. 

The first thing you'll need to do is to give your roof a good clean. Use the specialist Biocide A-Clean to get a completely clean surface that's ready for repair.

Next up you'll need to consider whether or not it's best to patch repair parts of go for a complete refurbishment. Patch repair will be along the lines above. And for refubishment, we reccomend using the highly durable coating AsbestosProof to completely seal the roof.

1) Do I need any extra tools or experience to apply it?

No. This is a complete DIY kit. You'll get everything you need to stop the leak. The only extras you'll need is a bucket to mix the A-Clean and water together, and a soft brush for the cleaning. This can be a standard dustpan style brush, so long as the bristles are soft.

2) Why should I get a kit?

All of the products in the kit have been carefully selected. They're generally more durable, longer lasting and easier to apply than what you'll find at the local hardware store. Roofing contractors have been using these materials for years, and they're now available to you. It's also more cost effective to order a kit than to buy the items seperately. 

3) How long will the repair last?

You should expecct 5-10 years, but it could be much longer, or shorter if it gets damaged. There's no clear cut answer for this as it'll depend on the roof conditions and future weathering. What we can say is that the butyl tapes can easily outlast many other solutions. 

4) Is asbestos safe to repair?

Yes, so long as you follow HSE guidelines. Keep yourself safe at all times.

5) Why should I use butyl tape? 

Butyl is a tough rubber that can handle temperate change and building movement. This sets it apart from other roofing tapes and solutions, particularly bitumen which has a reputation for cracking in the cold. The butyl is completely waterproof and forms a well adhered seal when combined with a coating or primer.

6) Why is the butyl tape foil or fleece backed?

The foil provides a UV resistant barrier to protect the rubber tape from sun exposure. And the fleece reinforced the tape and holds any subsequently applied coating. 

7) Why use a SpeedPatch to cover holes?

Unlike tapes or matting, a SpeedPatch is a tough barrier that's made from GRP laminate. This is easy to cut to size and shape around roof contours. The SpeedPatch cures when exposed to sunlight and forms a strong rigid barrier over holes. Combine this with the UV Curing primer and you've got a watertight seal that will go on year after year.
