Eaves are one of the most common areas where asbestos is found. Eaves are the part of a roof which meets or overhangs the walls of a building. Prior to the mid 80s, eaves were constructed of bonded asbestos sheeting (or fibro asbestos cement sheeting). Eaves can contain 10-15% of asbestos. Sometimes eaves can contain up to 40% of asbestos. An Australian home built prior to 1980 will more than likely contain asbestos eaves. Some houses built in the mid 90s may also have asbestos eaves.
In Australia, asbestos manufacturing stopped from the mid 80s. Cellulose fibres have replaced asbestos in fibre cement products. More information on asbestos eaves can be found here.
