Unless your an expert it can be very difficult to identify asbestos materials in your house whether it’s asbestos roofing, walls or other areas, particularly just by looking at it. There are some signs though which can help you determine if there is a risk at hand which requires further investigation.
The basic ‘rules of thumb’ for most properties are as follows:
Built pre-1980’s then it is very likely there would be materials containing asbestos.
Built between 1980 and 1990 it is still likely there would be asbestos materials present.
After 1990 it is unlikely to have material containing asbestos.
