My husband and I bought our first home in August. After the fact we found out that we have asbestos siding. It is in TERRIBLE condition, something we assumed would be fairly easy to fix...until we figured out what it was.
We really want to replace this but everyone says it's gonna be a nightmare!! They warn us about huge fines,permit costs,diposal fees and everything in between!
Our home is about 1500 sq. ft, two story and we live in Michigan...Bay County. I believe it's masonite (cement asbestos?)
Any help with laws and ballpark amounts to dispose would be really appreciated!! We would really like to do it ourselves with help from relatives, but we were told by friends that that wasn't possible. This is frusterating to say the least!!
TIA for any help!
