Asbestos in Walls
Textured coatings containing asbestos were used from the 1960s until the 1980s. Mostly applied to ceilings and to cover walls.
Asbestos was widely used in drywall manufacturing. If your home was built after the 1930s, your interior walls are probably at least partially constructed of drywall. In single family dwellings, these sheetrock boards did not usually include asbestos fibre, although until 1980, heavier and insulated cement boards used as firewalls between units in apartment houses and commercial buildings often did.
Decorative paneling installed in mid-century homes, however, may have contained asbestos, including panels made to look like brick, such as faux-brick paneling. More information about asbestos in walls can be found here.
If you’re planning to renovate any bedrooms in the house including external structure such as the granny flat or bungalow, demolishing old sheetrock walls or removing old paneling might be in your plans. Before you start, make sure you determine whether or not it contains asbestos.
