Asbestos cement siding

Asbestos dust would form and be spread around when cement shingles were cut. Also they degraded with the passing of time, presenting small cracks from where dangerous fibers would be released as they were being handled.

Asbestos cement siding was seen as an alternative to wooden shingles. The inclusion of asbestos in the manufacturing process made the siding more durable and resistant to extreme heat. Visually, they were similar to their wooden counterparts.

In the case of cement siding, asbestos exposure happened in two instances: as the asbestos fibers were added to the dry mix during the manufacturing process, and when the construction workers would disturb the material by accidentally damaging it. You could have been exposed if:

  • You found yourself working in old structures
  • You helped install or remove asbestos cement siding
  • You performed demolition work
  • You were involved in asbestos abatement projects
