Asbestos has properties that make it heat resistant and chemical resistant. It used to be used in a lot of different building materials, some of which include ceiling tiles, shingles, siding, floor tiles, and much more. However, asbestos was found to cause a type of cancer known as mesothelioma, and this is why it became illegal to use in building materials. The problem is that a lot of homes and businesses already had it.
The landscaping on either side of your driveway or private road is known as the drive side. Most driveways and roads are somewhat elevated so that water drains safely away and doesn't pose a hazard or damage the paving. Unfortunately, that means the flowing water can wreak havoc on your landscaping within the drive side.
Causes of Drive Side Erosion
Drive side erosion can occur on only one side of the drive, or it may occur on both sides.
