To the Editor:
Your December issue is terrific.
Both the selection of topics and the
information provided are excellent.
The asbestos piece ["A Contractor's
Guide to Asbestos"] should be
required reading for every contractor.
I'd like to respond to an answer
given by Henry Spies to a question
about vapor "barrier" paints. An
article from the April '84 New Shelter
deals with just this question. The
article refers to a more complete
technical report available from their
New Shelter claims to have surveyed
about 90 percent of the paints on the
market at the time to come up with
six brands that met their
qualifications as vapor "barriers."
Four brands are primer-sealers
