Asbestos, now recognized as a hazardous material when released into the air, was once widely used in wall insulation, paint, pipes, ceiling tiles, and other building materials because of its fire. Today, few products contain asbestos, and those that do are regulated and must be properly labelled. However, before the s, many types of home building materials and products used in the home contained asbestos and may be at risk of releasing fibres in to the air. These include: Asbestos cement roofing, roofing felt, shingles and siding.
