I'm in the process of cleaning out my 100+ year old mother's home and have run across numerous items my father saved from building our home in the 1940s and his salvage forays in the area in the 1960s. Among my 'finds' so far are two bundles of brand new asbestos-cement siding, plus the equivalent of about two bundles more that were carefully removed without serious damage from another old house in the neighborhood.

Because I've heard the word 'asbestos' in a negative light for so long ... I'm curious whether these can be sold? I know there are folks looking for replacements ... but am I risking legal problems if I try to sell these?

Thanks for any help you can give!

As far as I know, there is no law that would prohibit your selling a few pieces here and there--if you can find a buyer. I've seen stuff like this on ebay (usually small quantities, however). I'm not sure what kind of person would actually buy asbestos siding to install it however. If you do, I'd be interested in knowing about it. Just call it professional curiosity. Good luck!

I am very much interested in purchasing some old asbestos cement siding. The reason is that some of siding shingles in my old house have been damaged and I would like to replace them.

Likewise I have several squares of salvaged asbestos roof shingles. They are 16 x 16 x 1/8". I have about 2 squares of dutch pattern (layed square to eaves with 3 to 4 inch overlap) and 2 squares of french/hexagonal pattern (layed 45 degrees to the eaves with a chamfered corner). This isn't enough to roof a house but is good for replacement or repair. These were salvaged and have a nice weathered patina that can't be duplicated with new material. Located in Texas.

I am looking for at least 6 or 7 pieces of asbestos-cement siding (wavy preferred but any will do). I need this to make repairs on an old home. Do you possible have 6-7 pieces you are willing to sell to me?

Thank you,

Shirley

Hi Shirley -- and others:

Yes, I still have the siding. Haven't had a chance to list it on the auctions, but will probably do so soon.

Please let me know at mmkt@tias.com if you want some before I auction it and I'll try to accommodate you. I have both *new* and carefully-removed salavage pieces.

I'll need to pull some and see what packed weight is for shipping, but will get back to anyone interested as soon as possible.

Best,

Sharon

All interested in replacing old fiber cement shingles should check out a company called Weatherside, which has been bought by GAF. They produce exact replicas of the fiber cement shingles, only without the asbestos. Here is a link to their website where these shingles may be ordered online:

Sharon,

Do you still plan on selling some of the old siding? I still need 8 pieces of white to complete a job.

I'm in the process of residing an old house and have carefully removed the asbestos shingles so as to not break them. I have 2 different styles of with the wave on the bottom side of the siding. One has a wood grain pattern in it and is 12" x 27". The other is just straight lines and is 12" x 24" (I don't have as much of this as just an additon of the house was covered with it). I will have several pieces I'd like to sell as well as several partial pieces from around windows and such to get rid of. If interested contact me @ Jammit65@verizon.net

Hi-

I am interested in your 16x16 tiles (run parallel to the ridge). Are they intact, and do you have the copper clips required to hold down the exposed corner? Could I see a photo? How much were you looking to get, and what would we do about shipping to Virginia?
