How asbestos encapsulation works

When asbestos reaches the end of its lifespan, dangerous fibres can be released. Because of its popularity before the 1980s, that can affect everything from roofing to floors and walls. But expensive, disruptive removal isn’t the only option.

Asbestos encapsulation effectively seals the asbestos to keep the material intact. It’s much cheaper and safer than removal – as well as minimising waste.
The best option
Here’s why encapsulation is the best option for domestic and commercial properties.
First and foremost, asbestos encapsulation protects everyone in the building from asbestos exposure and the associated diseases like asbestosis and mesothelioma.
By protecting staff, customers and site visitors, you can keep your premises compliant and avoid penalties, forced closure or other disruption.
Whether it’s sealing an asbestos roof or encapsulating floors, our sprayed sealer application is much quicker than removal.
Because existing structures are simply sprayed to seal asbestos, the process is much more cost-effective too.

Asbestos Sealer

At Total Trades, we use SprayCork as an asbestos sealer for properties across the UK. It adds a protective layer to the material, which encloses the asbestos fibres within it. Not only does this help to contain the asbestos, but it also protects it from future damage. Our solution is fully certified for surfaces containing asbestos with a 15-year warranty. After this period, asbestos encapsulation can be renewed with a simple respray.

Customer Reviews
Total Trades ConstructionExcellent4.8 Based on 24 reviews fromCallum ListerCallum Lister ★★★★★ Very trustworthy and honest after bad experience with other companies Lee and the team have restored my faith wouldn’t hesitate to call them againPeter ParkinsonPeter Parkinson ★★★★★ I have come across many builders in my life but Total Trades led by Lee are the best. They tackled a difficult job, in poor weather, which included replacing asbestos soil downpipes, excavation for and replacement of damaged drainage, then making good with concrete and tarmac and leaving the site clean and tidy. I know it took a great deal of care and attention to detail to make such an excellent job and I have not seen better workmanship. If ever I need anything else doing their’s will be the number I will call.Peter ParkinsonKevin GloverKevin Glover ★★★★★ Lee and his team have a great product and service. Corksol looks very crisp and fresh. Very easy firm to work with.Steve TowellSteve Towell ★★★★★ Great experience working with Lee and team ,the work has transformed our home ,it’s a fantastic product ,covers a multitude of sins ,would highly recommend.Andrew BardsleyAndrew Bardsley ★★★★★ We found Lee from Total Trades to be very helpful and professional in carrying out the Cork rendering of our property. The job has taken much longer than we had hoped due to the poor weather this year and difficulties with sourcing the Cork render. These were all matters beyond his control but he did keep us informed all the way through. The job was difficult due to proximity to other properties and Lee was excellent in his efforts to complete the work whilst maintaining good relations with our neighbours. We are really happy with the results.Denise BassettDenise Bassett ★★★★★ Lee came out to look at a problem with our kitchen wall. He told us the problem within minutes!! He told us the simple solution 😁. Thankyou Lee for solving our problem and being so honest 😁😁. You certainly know your Trade.Philip CarrPhilip Carr ★★★★★ Lee and his team refurbished our external rendering with Corksol Spray.From the onset Lee was most helpful knowledgable always either answered his telephone or return calls quickly.The work was undertaken and carried out to plan. We are really pleased with the finished result. We would definitely use again for any building work in the future.Chantelle KellyChantelle Kelly ★★★★★ I recently contacted total trades to take a look at our leaking flat roof (3 in total), the company was highly professional from the very first point of contact. It soon became apparent that our roof was in a bad condition, and the previous roofer had done a really bad job using shed felt, and poor workmanship. Total trades provided us with a quote for a new GRP roof and trims, and we got booked in quickly for the work to be carried out. On the day, the team was fantastic. They arrived on time, was friendly and polite, took their boots off when indoors, and tidied up at the end of each day. Once the job was complete, they took away all the old felt and timber to dispose of, and left us with a brand new watertight roof with a 20 year guarantee. We are extremely pleased with the whole process, from first point of contact all the way through to completion, and would highly recommend Total Trades to everyone. They set a perfect example of how companies should operate, and have left us with total peace of mind. Thank you for such an amazing service.js_loader

Asbestos Encapsulation FAQs

Why is asbestos encapsulation important?

Asbestos fibres are dangerous when they becomes airborne. This happens when the asbestos is damaged or reaches the end of its lifespan. If the fibres are inhaled they can potentially cause serious illness. 

How long does asbestos encapsulation take?

It depends on the size of the project, but rest assured it’s significantly quicker than removal. Because you don’t disturb the asbestos, you don’t have to wait for fibres to settle before clearance testing.

How long will it last?

Asbestos encapsulation with SprayCork last for 15 years, which is protected by a warranty. After this point, you simply need to respray the asbestos sealer.

How much does it cost?

Costs vary depending on the size and type of the project – sealing an asbestos roof is typically more complex than wall tiles, for example. For an exact price, simply request a no-obligation quote from Total Trades.
