Safeguard Home Inspection, LLC
Answer: In some cases
Explanation: Asbestos siding was used on houses between 1905 and the 1960's. Cutting, sanding, or breaking these tiles is a health hazard. These actions release asbestos fibers into the air, and breathing these fibers is dangerous. If they are undamaged they do not provide any health risks. If you do decide to have them replaced you would need to hire a company that specializes in that type of work.
