Home Remodeling Products Containing Asbestos
Many thousands of construction workers and others involved in home building and renovation all across the U.S. have developed aggressive, fatal cancer from breathing in asbestos fibers.

Turn To Asbestos Cancer Lawyers Equipped To Identify Exposure Sources
Although some occupations can be identified as presenting an especially high risk for asbestos cancer, asbestos-containing products were so prevalent that people involved in nearly every aspect of construction have been affected. The most frequently identified categories of toxic and carcinogenic products used in construction and renovation include:
- Insulation — including many fiber-based, foam and spray insulation products as well as pipe insulation
- Joint compounds and leveling compounds
- Ceiling tiles and flooring materials
- Many adhesives and bonding agents
- Roofing shingles
Clearly, exposure in homes and buildings under construction was commonplace for insulators, bricklayers, roofers, drywallers, electricians, HVAC installers, tile setters, painters and many others. The risk of secondary exposure to family members and building occupants has also been well documented.
