I'm in the process of getting quotations for replacing my old alluminum siding with new vinyl siding. I was told that there is most likely really old aspestos siding under the alluminum siding. Now the decision part. I have been told by one of the contractors that the aspestos siding must be removed. Yet a lot of the other contractors are saying this does not to be done and furhter they don't do it. Is it all right to put the new vinly siding over the very old aspestos siding? What would be the best advise. I'm not concerned about the price. I want to have the best job done without risk to my family.

I too have the same siding on my house and was informed by ministry of enviroment that the removal of aspestos whent like this You must tent the house, rent a special bin to house removed siding and were special suits and mask while removing, However after talking to newmorus contracyors I decided to tacck the advice of the majority, Iwhent and bought a roll of tybeck and spray glue, sprayed the glue on the hous and put the tybeck overtop,I taped the tybeck just as you would for normal siding but now when I hammer anail into the siding the glue prevents the old siding from falling or being exposed,

As stated by rwmckee the process is very exp to remove the asbestos siding...the right way.

I would say that 99.9% of people go over the old siding.....

You may have to build out the windows and door frames to cover the extra thickness of the siding but that doesnt come close to the cost of having the asbestos removed.
