Asbestos was used in many construction projects over the decades for its durability and unmatched heat-resistant qualities.
Most roofing products manufactured prior to 1980 contained asbestos. On roofs, asbestos cement can be found on a frequent basis in the form of gutter linings. Asbestos cement products, including downpipes and guttering, are manufactured using mechanized processes in which asbestos fibers are mixed with cement slurry. Asbestos is usually about 10-40% of the total product, forming a more durable material. It is often used as corrugated roofing and sheds, and garages. It was also used to make drainpipe, flues, water tanks, gutters, and other products.
If you still have the original roof on your house or aren't sure when the roof was last replaced, then the best practice is to assume that it may contain asbestos.
Asbestos Guttering was Popular Building Product Used Prior To 1980 In Asbestos Cement Roofs. Properly functioning rain gutters are important components of your home's foundation and roof. The primary function of a gutter is to provide a channel for redirecting water. Besides protecting the roof and the overall structure of your home, rain gutters also prevent soil erosion around the house foundation.
Asbestos was a common building product until the 1980s, and on houses from that period you may find concrete gutters where asbestos was used as a bonded material in cement. Asbestos cement guttering is waterproof, never rusts, requires little maintenance and lasts for many years. The presence of any known asbestos-containing material that is to remain in situ is not considered hazardous as long as it is left undamaged and undisturbed. Only when it is damaged can the fibers be released and breathed in, causing harmful health effects.
When you buy a home built before 1980, the previous owner may not always disclose the presence of asbestos. However, if the gutters have never been replaced or the siding on your home is original, there is a good chance the materials contain asbestos. If the gutters were installed after 1980 or the siding has since been replaced, you shouldn't have to worry; once the federal ban was in place, manufacturers ceased using asbestos completely in all applications.
