have an old house that I’ve inherited, want to know if the rolled roofing is asbestos? don’t have a clue, we are
tearing it down. how can I tell if it’s asbestos or not??
It is very difficult to tell visually if not impossible on asphalt rolled roofing. Some older rolled roofing did indeed contain some asbestos. Thankfully, this is mostly contained and non-friable – which means does not release into the atmosphere to breathe. Treat is as such for removal or get a certified contractor in to do some testing.
