We had an addition built on the back of our house. The now interior wall of the addition of our house use to be the exterior wall of the house. The wall has asbestos siding on it, that we would like to cover with drywall. The asbestos siding is in great shape. We finished the three new walls and ceiling of addition with drywall. The asbestos siding is still exposed right now as the interior wall of addition.. We would like to finish those walls with drywall this winter. We read online from numerous websites, is not to remove the asbestos siding. If in good shape, to leave it alone and not remove just cover it. They were saying to spray or apply an adhesive, and cover tightly with a 4 mil plastic. Then attach 1X4 slats on top of 4 mil plastic, and install drywall to the slats. Then it will be encapsulated. Have you heard of people doing this to asbestos siding inside of house. Numerous websites was saying that asbestos siding, is the best asbestos in homes that is not that dangerous like other asbestos products that can be come airborne. Any info would be great. Thanks
