<font class="content">Hi,
Can anyone tell me how they deal with exterior asbestos cement roofs in Spain.
I am told in many cases if asbestos is exterior it is safer to leave well alone. icon_confused.gif</font>

<font class="content">Caroline,

No precautions are taken with exterior asbestos cement sheet. If you live in a village you may well be surrounded by the stuff. You can paint the sheet in an endeavour to seal it.

<font class="content">Hi Chris,
That sounds a bit depressing. The agent I bought the house from told me it was a cement roof.( although I had my doubts).
However today I was reading about asbestos roofs and they mentioned asbestos cement roofs.
The house is in a little hamlet of the village, yet it appears to be the only one with this kind of roof. Most of the others have the old style spanish tiles. Thanks any way for your reply and as long as you think I'll live. icon_smile.gif I am happy with that.
