When I was a kid, I had a little summer job re-compounding the windows in a church rectory, so I know this is easy enough to do, and I'm actually pretty good at it.
Now I'm reading that some window compounds might contain asbestos, and I'm suddenly freaked out about scraping off what's left of the old compound, or even opening any of my old windows that are still actively flaking. I know people get old windows replaced all the time, and they also replace window compound all the time, and I never see or hear of any asbestos abatement procedures as part of the process. The installer who's putting in the new windows we are getting looked at our windows and never mentioned any risk to himself or anyone else. Should I assume there's an asbestos risk, or am I freaked out over nothing? How much asbestos was there in old window compound?
