Hello. Quick question, have a house on Nevill built 1950s - want to knock down and rebuild the (detached) garage. Any chance there will be asbestos in the roof?

I believe that when we bought our house the survayor picked it up and put it in his report. Maybe have a look to see if you have one from when you purchased your house.
If the roof is corrigated cement type material i would say it is likely to have asbestos due to the age. My house was built in the 60s and it has asbestos in the garage

I had a little garage at the end of my garden. I'm not sure when exactly it was built but it did have asbestos in the roof. It wasn't a problem though: we hired a specialist company to demolish it and dispose of the material safely. It was the less hazardous stuff (white?) and it didn't cost a huge amount in the general scheme of things - maybe 500 or so?

We have a garage built, I think, by the previous owners who bought the house in 1964. That has asbestos in the roof.

If its asbestos cement which corrogated sheet will be then this is known as an ACM (asbestos containing material) This is very low risk and can be removed by a non licenced contractor providing that its not broken, cut or machined during the removal procees
This type of ACM contains approx 15% asbestos, and this is very tightly bound within the composition of the material Even if the sheeting is broken when removed (and in practice it is almost impossible not to) then the risk is extremely small
I wouldn't worry about the risk, I've removed lots of this type of material in the past, you just need to respect it and dispose of it correctly. Seaford tip has an asbestos bin. Double wrap it in polythene then take it there
