Can you tell which of these roofs use asbestos shingles? We can!

Asbestos has been linked to asbestosis and mesothelioma, lung diseases caused by breathing asbestos fibers. Asbestosis irritates and scars the lung tissues, while the more dangerous mesothelioma causes a type of cancer that is often fatal. You can find asbestos in Loose-fill insulation containing vermiculite, Popcorn ceiling texture, Textured paint, wall patching compound, House siding, Pipe insulation, particularly wraps or tape on older pipes, Door gaskets on oil and coal furnaces, Heat-resistant board and paper materials around wood stoves, roofing materials, Vinyl floor tiles, tile backing, and tile adhesive.
