Asbestos siding on our rental: dangerous?
posted by cgs to Home & Garden (9 answers total)
We live in a turn-of-the-century house with pink shakes/siding, and apartment has a large deck/balcony where we spend a good bit of time. My parents recently visited and identified the pink shakes as asbestos(!)
I'm concerned for my family's health, especially since we are about to have a baby. The wiki on asbestos says it is all about inhaling the fibers... but some of the shakes are not in good condition.
Please take a look at the photos and let me know what you think:
Thanks for your time-
