From the 1950s until the 1980s, asbestos was the material of choice during that time because of its rot-resistant and fire-resistant properties, durability, affordability and ease of use. It was highly flexible and used on everything from roofs, sidings, shingles and floor tiles to piping and ceilings of houses. It wasn’t until the early ‘70s that the federal government placed a moratorium on asbestos. Undisturbed, asbestos does not pose a threat. It is when the fibers become airborne, be it from a remodel, fire, natural disaster or some other event, that the fibers can be inhaled into the lungs.
