More importantly, you do not have to remove it. Not even California will force a property owner to remove asbestos roofing ... imagine the difficulties in economically depressed areas if they tried to do so.

Does it leak? If it isn't broken, why try and fix it?

You can have it tested, but it looks like asbestos from the pictures. I just looked at a corrugated asbestos roof here in New Orleans on the back shed of a house with slate. It was confirmed to be asbestos by a lab.

Hi,

I just bought my house 4 -years ago.....it was inspected...nothing said about the roof on a small portion of the house...

A contractor was here today, about something else and told me that this roof was asbestos and neeeded or had to be removed....I am attaching photos of the roof.......Can u tell buy looking at a photograph? How do I determine if it is asbestos? Do I need to remove it? Is it a problem as it is?

Thanks.
