Asbestos was used extensively in buildings both domestic and commercial until it was eventually stopped in 1999. The heaviest usage was between the 1950’s through to the 1980’s. Any building constructed during this time would almost definitely have some asbestos in it. Most homes built before then will possibly also have some asbestos in them. Asbestos was used as insulation in all sorts of different places. Boilers and pipes were lagged in asbestos to keep the heat in and some homes had asbestos between the roof and the ceiling to insulate the house.
