Does any one know of a source for replacement asbestos shingles.
Shingles that are the same thickness for siding. All the shingles I
am finding in the stores are much thicker. We have some damaged
pieces and I would like to replace them.
I don't think they are being manufactured due to the asbestos. If you
can find an old home being renovated or torn down you may get what you want.
You may want to check with local asbestos handling firms and see if they
would be wiling to save a few for you.
Well, I've got a stack of about 20 fiberglass-cement ones in my basement,
so I know they exist, but they came with the house, so I don't know where
from. I patch my broken ones with bondo, 'cause I can't figure out how
to get one out without cracking the one above it.
Ah.. here we are:

Tom! Asbestos has been banned for years now (In Canada anyway) They
don't even allow it in brake shoes anymore and there is no mining of
the stuff. Asbestos is a known cancer agent and sucks into the lungs
readily. Replace them all but expect a hassel disposing of them.
