Frequently Asked Questions

What is Fibre Cement?

Fibre cement is a composite material used in a variety of construction applications, such as roofing and cladding. The material largely consists of cement but also features fibre reinforcement. This combination of materials provides unrivalled strength and durability.

The unique combination of cement and fibre reinforcement also provides you with a safe construction material. Most fibre cement slates, sheets, and cladding have been through thorough fire testing and should have received certification for this.

Fibre cement materials therefore offer superb durability and safety whilst being cost-effective. Making them ideal for both renovation and new build projects, whether it be on a residential or commercial property.

Does Fibre Cement Contain Asbestos?

Whilst old fibre cement products may contain traces of asbestos, those manufactured today do not. This is due to the harm that asbestos can cause, and UK regulators banning the use of asbestos in construction materials. You can therefore use our range of fibre cement roof tiles with the confidence that they are asbestos-free.

If you are removing old fibre cement materials, however, you should take care. This is as old fibre cement slates, sheets and cladding may in fact contain asbestos. If this is the case you will need to consult a qualified professional to ensure your safety and the safety of those around you.

How Do You Cut Fibre Cement Slates?

Cutting fibre cement roof tiles is incredibly simple and can be done entirely using hand tools. This eliminates the need to have access to a power supply, as well as issues such as silica dust. Score the slates using a scriber, and then either snap them over a straight edge, or cut the slates using a guillotine, hand saw or reciprocating saw.
