Never impact, drill, cut, saw, break, or move any suspected asbestos materials

Asbestos in Exterior Building Materials

Exterior building materials containing asbestos were commonly used in the construction industry between the years 1940 and 1990.    It was used mainly for fire- and heat-resistant properties, it was the perfect solution as a fire-retardant insulator in panels, roofing, and structural applications.

If you do not know whether a building material contains asbestos or not and it fits the suspect material category, it must be treated as asbestos until it is proven otherwise.  The suspect material or product cannot be identified by simply looking at it.    A sample needs to be collected by one Stutters DKI Asbestos Certified Techs for testing.      It’s important that you NEVER try to collect a sample yourself.

Building exteriors that could contain asbestos fibers:

  • Asbestos cement siding panels
  • Stucco
  • Asbestos cement soffits
  • Asbestos cement roof panels
  • Roofing felts and mastic’s
  • Building overhangs – thermal spray
  • Brick and block mortar
  • Loose fill insulation in exterior wall cavities (vermiculite)
  • Fireproofing spray on beams, decks, joists, columns and other structural members
