Fall Of Asbestos Roof Panels

Asbestos is a confirmed human carcinogen. Due to its use in materials and construction products, asbestos can still be found in many commercial, industrial and residential buildings. Given the danger that asbestos may present, there are requirements to work with or have asbestos in your building or workplace.

Asbestos-Containing Materials

These include the need to make an inventory of where the asbestos is in your building, periodic inspections of asbestos-containing material, worker education and signaling/labeling of asbestos-containing materials.

Pipes Containing Asbestos

Asbestos sources in a building can include;

Fiber cement pipes, drywall, roofing tiles, roofing, and ceilings,

Vinyl and asphalt pavements, including backing and mastics,

Acoustics, plaster decorative wall and ceiling, paints, spackles, and coatings,

Ceiling Tiles And Lay-In Panels,

Thermal Insulation

Thermal insulation, including spray applied, boiler, underpants, pipe, tank, and glasses blow-in,

Flame Retardant Material

Flame retardant material, including, blankets, curtains, covers, gloves, electrical wiring

Packing Materials

Packing materials, gaskets, felt, caulking, mastics, joint compounds, and adhesives,

  • Insulation, cloth, and structural insulation,
  • Connections of the flexible ducts of the fabric and the padding,
  • Interior surfaces of pipes in buildings contaminated with asbestos.

Asbestos Inspection And Air Monitoring Services

The reduction of asbestos must be carried out under strict controls by the Regulation and government guidelines. Winnipeg Air Control will provide independent inspection during a project to ensure and document that the reduction was carried out correctly.

The review must be done of the precinct before the disturbance of the asbestos is carried out (This includes tests of the negative pressure of the box).


All our staff is former government inspectors who know the legal requirements of a demotion site. The air decontamination tests must be carried out inside the enclosure before being dismantled.

All samples are collected according to NIOSH analytical methods and from samples analyzed in a laboratory accredited by the AIHA.

Asbestos surveys Buildings / Audits

Surveys were conducted to meet the specific circumstances and requirements of the client, including:

  • The Compliance and Regulatory Management Surveys
  • audits and inventories of asbestos construction
  • Semester inspections of asbestos-containing materials
  • The property transfer surveys
  • Pre-abatement specification surveys for renovation or demolition

Bulk Asbestos Analysis

Workplaces, commercial building owners, and contractors often perform improvements and repairs involving or around material that may contain asbestos. The sampling of the suspect material can be carried out promptly to minimize the delay in the project.

Winnipeg air control may have the sample of a material suspected of containing asbestos can be analyzed to confirm or eliminate the presence of asbestos. A laboratory accredited by the AIHA does all work. This can be done using polarized light microscopy (PLM), and transmission electron microscopy (TEM), but PLM is by far the most common types of analysis. The results indicate the type of asbestos present in the sample and its percent composition (for example, chrysotile, content 10%). The lower limit of quantifiable detection is from 0.5 to 1%.

We can collect samples of material suspected of containing asbestos or merely collect them. The results may be available as soon as you need them: from that same day to five business days. The price varies with the volume and response time.

The use of Winnipeg’s residential asbestos testing services is fast and cheap. The owners can collect a sample themselves, put it in a Ziploc bag, and leave or email it in a sample to be analyzed. We use an accredited laboratory to analyze the samples and send the results to the owner. Based on our sample volume, we can provide the service at the lowest cost to the owners.

Winnipeg Air Control offers courses in working with and around asbestos. The course is taught by a former government inspector who is familiar with the provincial asbestos requirements. The most popular route is a half-day course for the management of asbestos in your building.

Types of roofs for the terrace

Now that the good weather is here, everyone who has a garden in their home will start using it much more. Usually, the yards are open, but many people decide to close them so that the sun does not bother the sun much during the summer and that the rainwater does not enter in the winter.

The ceilings for terraces can give a lot of style to that part of the house regardless of the size you have, and the truth is that if you close it, you can get much more out of it throughout the year. They can be rooted in different ways and with different materials, always taking into account those that suit you. Take note of the types of roofs for the terraces:


The Four Most Usual Ceilings

Wooden ceilings: They are the most used, especially if you have the patio in the garden and want to get a very cozy atmosphere. Its design is with sheets or wooden tiles, which gives it a very rustic atmosphere. Also, they are very resistant and protect very well from the rain, besides helping to maintain a cold temperature during the hottest months of the year.

Polycarbonate ceilings: It is one of the most resistant materials and is widely used in outdoor areas both on terraces and patios. One of its significant advantages is that it lets the light pass through but filters the sun’s rays, so you’ll have to light but without burning yourself if it’s sunny. It is ideal for areas where the climate changes a lot as it perfectly protects from rain, cold, sun, heat …

-Ceilings of fiber cement: Also very resistant, primarily to factors such as humidity and mold and fungi that it usually produces. It is straightforward to install and also very resistant to sudden changes in temperature. It is not used much in homes but establishments such as bars or restaurants.

Prolipopileno ceilings: They are made of a particular resin that helps to save energy because it allows light to pass very quickly, although it does not let the sun’s rays pass. It is very resistant, and you can find it in several colors so that it will fit perfectly with the decoration of the terrace.

Removable or technical roofs

We must say that there are different false ceilings types and among them, the removable roof is probably the most chosen for its functionality.

The different types of removable roofs meet all the characteristics above, with the particularity that their plates are very easy to assemble and disassemble and this facilitates the change of dishes due to deterioration or the arrangement and improvements in the installations.

False continuous ceilings

For its part, if we talk about the wrong ceiling continuous, we refer to an incorrect ceiling type something different from the one we have been talking about. Usually, it is made of plaster or laminated plasterboard. The difference also lies in its installation, since its plates are based on a structure formed by uprights, while the continuity character is guaranteed with the use of ribbons and pastes that allow strengthening the joints of the plates.
