Asbestos Exterior Siding Removal Cheshire Connecticut
Finding a Siding Removal Connecticut Service isn’t hard now. There is no question that asbestos fibers do pose a health risk, and this is the reason that building materials no longer include this material. Asbestos-cement is a mixture of Portland cement reinforced with asbestos fibers.
Asbestos cement wall shingles were popular and used in the U.S. from the 1920s through the 1960s. Asbestos siding was essentially a cement siding product that asbestos fibers had been added to it. This was done in order to add fireproofing and stability to cement siding so that it wouldn’t crack or break as easily. At the time, no one knew that asbestos fibers were so harmful and carcinogenic especially if they are inhaled.

The siding may also contain asbestos if it is old with a wood-grain texture to resemble cedar.
