Home Buying and Asbestos Risks

Buying a home can be very exciting and a great opportunity for starting fresh in a new location. However, it’s very important to keep in mind the ages of the homes you are looking at. If a home was built prior to 1980, it’s possible that it contains asbestos, an extremely dangerous building material that was commonly used until 1979. Its use was officially banned in the U.S. in 1979, when it became public knowledge that asbestos causes serious lung conditions, but many homes still contain asbestos, putting those living in these homes at risk.

If you or someone you love has suffered from asbestos exposure, you may be entitled to financial compensation. To learn more, contact an asbestos attorney with Williams Hart today by calling 800-781-3955 to discuss your legal and medical options.

Where is Asbestos?

In homes built before the official ban on asbestos, asbestos may appear in a variety of locations and building materials. Some of the materials in your home that could contain asbestos include:

  • Siding
  • Ceramic tile
  • Drywall
  • Plumbing

There are other substances in your home that may contain asbestos, but these are some of the more commonly reported. It’s important to know if a house contains asbestos if you have purchased or are planning to purchase it. Knowing about the presence of asbestos in a home can help you avoid exposure, keeping yourself and your family safe.
