Asbestos roof coating

With aging roofs, asbestos material is left in a friable condition making it easier for the particles of asbestos to be spread around. This would happen when the coating would start to crumble as roofing work was performed by professionals.

This product was found in liquid form and it was brushed or sprayed before the shingles were laid down onto the roof. In order to make roof coating more durable, asbestos was included in the manufacturing process.

Contained in the mixture of the product, the asbestos fibers posed little to no danger. As the roofs were starting to get damaged due to external factors, the roof coating started to crumble exposing the asbestos particles that were found in a friable and unstable state. You could have been exposed if:

  • You found yourself working on old roofs
  • You worked directly with roof coating
  • You did remodeling work in old structures
  • You performed demolition work
  • You entered in contact with the clothes or the gear covered in asbestos dust
