Acrylic siding shakes


Should I assume that a 1940-built house with acrylic shakes will contain asbestos? I know I can test for it, but jsut wondered what others have found on this. Thanks

Acrylic siding shakes


I had some shingles(12x24") on mine, built in 1910, resided in the '50's. Took them off in '80, found original horizontal lap underneath.
