Asbestos roofing is a grey corrugated material. The use of ACMs in building materials has been banned for some time. Therefore, if it is present on your premises, it may be hard to identify. This is because it is likely to have a covering of moss and other deposits, due to its age.
If your corrugated roofing sheet is stamped with ‘NT’ then it is unlikely that it contains hazardous ACMs. Some other materials used in corrugated roofing include iron and reinforced plastic. These materials are not hazardous and should easily identifiable.
