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 our 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 Biocide to 2 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 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.
