I recently had all my asbestos siding removed and put up new vinyl siding.
The contractor told me that although it is called asbestos siding since my house was built in 1960s that it was not really made out of asbestos and they are safe to remove.
Now I am worried that he was lying to me....he is done and gone, and everything is cleaned up. Should I be worried about it still for health reasons?
With some experience, i speak wisely. As long as the ground was tarped, the asbestos fiber from broken pieces shouldnt remain. Your houses title should tell you if it was indeed asbestos. This is not an extremely dangerous form of asbestos, but in many areas his method of dealing with removal and disposal may have been illegal. On the plus side if it was asbestos and it was a reputable contractor, it would likely have cost you much more!
