Safely Replacing Your Home’s Siding

Many people know that asbestos is a highly dangerous substance if it breaks apart and its fibers are inhaled, but not everyone knows the many different items that may contain asbestos. In the remodeling and construction/demolition industries, concerns regarding asbestos are at the forefront of many people’s minds. One of the places that asbestos was popularly used prior to 1979 was in home siding materials. Although many homes were built with stone or brick, sometimes asbestos was used to strengthen this siding, creating a considerable asbestos exposure risk for future homeowners or demolition workers.

There is a safe way to remove asbestos from your home, but many people were not aware of these safe procedures and were subsequently exposed to asbestos fibers when removing / replacing their home’s siding. If you or someone you know was exposed to asbestos because of another party’s negligence, contact an experienced asbestos attorney with Williams Hart at 800-781-3955 to discuss the medical and legal options available to you.

Removing Asbestos-Containing Siding

Asbestos should never be removed by anyone other than experts trained in its removal, because an inexperienced attempt could result in dangerous exposure. Typically, homes with asbestos need:

  • Federal approval for the removal and disposal of asbestos or,
  • State-regulated professional removal, and
  • Expert containment and disposal of all asbestos material

These steps require the experience of professionals, but many homeowners and workers had no idea about the presence of asbestos-containing siding on homes, and were exposed to its deadly fibers.
