Asbestos shingles

The shingles became worn with age, deteriorating and making the asbestos friable. In this state, it was easier for the asbestos fibers to be released into the environment as people handled them in their line of work on a constant basis.

These types of products were made by using asbestos cement boards. This was done in order make the shingles more durable and able to withstand extreme temperatures and conditions.

Even though they posed little to no risk when they were first installed, any disturbance to them that left them damaged increased exponentially the level of exposure. This would have made the asbestos become friable over time. You could have been exposed if:

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