Have you recently purchased a commercial or residential property in NH, MA, ME, CT, VT, or RI? You’re probably ready to renovate or move in. As you’re getting ready to clear old building materials your contractor makes a note of the cement shingles. As you come to find out, those shingles have quite a history – and not a very great one.
It all started when inventor and entrepreneur Ludwig Hatschek purchased a factory for asbestos goods in Upper Austria in 1893. Following his purchase, he succeeded in inventing asbestos cement and began opening up factories in 1900 to meet the soon-to-be rising demands. It didn’t take long for word to travel to the United States and pretty soon, builders were lining up to get their hands on this cement. Made with a mixture of asbestos fibers and hydraulic cement, asbestos-cement roof shingles were rigid, durable and fireproof, making it every homeowner’s dream for a roofing solution.
But alas, came the fall of asbestos. In 1929, the first claim against the mixture was made stating that it caused pulmonary disease. Laws and regulations were soon put it to place to regulate the sales and creation of asbestos.
However, It wasn’t until 1989 that the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) issued an Asbestos Ban and Phase Out Rule in the United States. Finally, the use of this problematic concrete mixture had come to in an end.
Yet even now, in 2018, many homes in Maine, Connecticut, Massachusetts, Vermont and New Hampshire have to go through an asbestos removal process. And that cement shingle roof of yours? It’s worth having it surveyed and tested in order to protect the residents who live or work inside your recently purchased building.

Why Asbestos Is Commonly Found In Roofs
Asbestos has been found in many roofs that contain shingles. The cement mixture used to create these shingles often contain asbestos. Once sawed or drilled, these products can potentially release asbestos fibers into the air if they were made with an asbestos cement mixture. In addition to roofs, asbestos can also be found in furnaces, boilers, piping, walls, siding, window glazing & window caulking.

If ignored, the dangers and risks of asbestos exposure are great
Studies have shown that asbestos is a substance that can cause cancer and once a person is exposed, risks of developing lung cancer and mesothelioma can increase.
