Identifying asbestos siding?
Hey all, new here, hopefully I've gotten this post in the right forum.
I wonder if anyone can help me in identifying asbestos exterior siding. I really don't think we have it, but I'm curious because the dog has done quite a bit of damage to it.
The house was built in 1983 and the siding probably about 12 inches tall by 8 or 10 foot long boards. The material feels fragile, I guess like what you might call pressed wood boards. It has almost a wet cardboard feel to the pieces that are particularly chewed through.
My understanding is asbestos siding is hard, not something a dog would easily chew through?
Attached are a few pics of it. The exposed material underneath wasn't this gray at first, it was more of a brown, but the elements have gotten to it. What do you think? Am I worrying too much over nothing or should I get it tested?
Doesn't look like asbestos, more like homosote or pressed board.
Defiantly not asbestos.
That’s LP, your last picture shows the signature LP knot on the panel.
I agree, LP: http://www.lpcorp.com/smartside/lap/ Seal it, quick.....
Be safe, Gary
