    During my lead guy's first week, [when he was a helper] the guys were tearing out an oooold furnace. One of the guys said "Jack, do you know Travis doesn't like asbestos?" I thought Oh-no, he'll quit so I asked him why and he said.....




    "Hell no I don't like asbestos, I like pussy bestest!"

    One other thing to note typically asbestos tape on duct work is usally easy to identify:

    1 it will be thicker than regular duct tape almost 1/8 of an inch if I remember correctly it will be white in colour or cream. This is what I remember I also recall that it was used on older homes pre 70's for sure pre 65 possibly

    It could be that we Canadians are smarter and stopped using the stuff on our Igloo's before you Yanks did

    A litle asbestos tape on ducting is nothing to get too excited about if at all concerned follow local codes for removal and you should be OK

    the jokes killed me

    Arguing with some people is like wrestling a pig - eventually you realise the pig actually enjoys it

    Gonads serve a useful purpose but are no substitute for brains

    It's so cold up there I wouldn't think there'd be any need for asbestos!

    People in southern Texas wear it for underwear.

    Take your time & do it right!

    No one has used asbestos in tape for at least 35 years or so, north or south. If the house is indeed only 15 years old, it ain't the big A.

    Asbestos was first mined in Canada and if I remember correctly,
    the guy who discovered its value died from exposure to it.
    As for underwear. When I worked in a shipyard I was skinny
    enough to get inside the "rudder horn" and weld it while
    it was kept at 350 degrees with strip heaters.
    They would give me a couple asbestos
    blankets that I would wrap around me as I crawled in and worked for about 8-10 minutes. Gee I wonder how thats going
    to play out long term?

    We used asbestos tape up to the late 70's. I don't know if you need aremoval co. or not.

    I need help with an issue related to asbestos duct tape. We were told by our home inspector that we needed to reconnect the furnace in our crawl space to the ductwork. We had a licensed HVAC contractor come out and he said we needed to replace the plenum. We said ok and ordered the work. The technician arrived and was in the crawlspace for 4 hours. When he came out he said that our old metal ducts connected to the plenum had become brittle and broken so he had replaced them with flex ducts which we had to pay for. He then said that we should consider replacing all of the ducts because they had asbestos tape on them and were old and brittle. I looked at the ducts and plenum he had removed and saw that there was the white asbestos tape. One piece was even hanging off. What do we do now?? It was two ducts and a plenum so not much tape. But hate to think we are now exposed to asbestos fibers. Shouldn't he have told us before removing the tap? I am in GA by the way.

    Early 70's I kept an open bucket of asbestos cement in my van. Cement is not the best word, very light flaky stuff. Oh ya, the tape too. Even though the dangers were known at the time it's amazing how long it takes for information to flow down hill.

    I have taken samples to an insulation contractor I use. He's able to ID the stuff. Says the little black specs are markers the industry uses.
    Some times encapsulation is used like with popcorn ceilings. Paint over them. As long as the stuff isn't airborne.
    Just know advice can hang you. If in doubt have an expert evaluate. Duck and cover.
    Hey Dice, where have you been or is it me being numb again?
    I should have played the g'tar on the MTV. MK

    You can be anything you want......As long as you don't suck at it.
