We have a garage with siding which sorta looks like asbestos. What is the best way to determine if it is or not?

Worse case, if it is - how do we remove it or do we have to have someone come in and do it? Can you put new siding over it and what problems, if any, would you have?

thanks in advance.

Hi tammy,

Visit the Old BBS and search for asbestos on the page. Try a few 'hits'. I recently did some follow-ups about asbestos siding and siding over it (errrr, NOT siding over it.) If you can't get there, e-mail me directly for info.

My best to ya and hope this helps.

Jay,
I checked the Old BBS, but I didn't see where you do a search, except for at the top of the page under Search Bobvila.com....

what am I missing?
Thanks

Hi tammys,

Go to Old BBS and then use the Find/Search 'feature' in your Browser. In Netscape and Microsoft Internet Explorer, it's under the 'Edit' Toolbar. In the 'window', enter in the word: asbestos

Read through the Posts and Follow-ups until you find info on your question. If you're still having trouble, let me know and I'll spend some time 'digging it up'.

My best to ya and hope this helps.
