How To Determine Whether You Need Asbestos Fence Removal
Although asbestos fence removal is usually advantageous, it is not always required. In certain circumstances, an asbestos fence may be used before it poses possible health risks. After determining how to distinguish asbestos fences from other types of fences, the following step establishes the optimal timing for their removal. You will first need to evaluate its state and take appropriate action based on your evaluations. In some circumstances, you might also want to seek asbestos removal specialists like us.
Assessing Your Asbestos Fence’s Condition
Although asbestos can endure anywhere from 25 to 70 years, various circumstances can damage asbestos fences. You should take the fences down if they are too old or damaged to repair. When conducting an asbestos examination to identify the optimal timing to remove the asbestos fence, you must consider the following:
1. Degree of Asbestos Weathering
The deterioration of the cement matrix that wraps and binds the asbestos fence is accelerated by weathering. Asbestos fibres and fibre bundles that are broken and peeled are indicative of degradation. Asbestos fibres have a puffed or fluffy look that typically shimmers in the sun. Additionally, moss growth is a standard indicator of weather deterioration on older fences. The more weathering, the more fragile and vulnerable to cracking or breaking the fence. This eventually deteriorates the integrity of other fence components.
2. Physical Damage
Physical damage could range from tiny scuffs, nicks, holes, and cracks to shattered sheets. The majority of asbestos is released when fences are broken. Automobile crashes, plant damage, vandalism, and fire damage are frequent sources of actual damage to asbestos fences—the more physical damage to asbestos fencing, the stronger the case for its removal.
3. Vertical Lean
Asbestos fences’ vertical lean is also a strong indicator of their overall condition. As the angle rises, so does the chance of collapse and the release of hazardous quantities of asbestos fibres. Excessive vertical lean is a strong symptom of a damaged and unstable foundation. Asbestos fences that are leaning are also more prone to physical deterioration and weathering.
Even if your asbestos fence is not particularly poor, now is the best time to contemplate removal. The sooner it is removed, the better.
