I want to redo the siding on an 1860's house presently covered with 1/2x6" tapered wood siding. The wood has been under asbestos for 50 years. It is occasionally cracked, but otherwise sound. I wonder what you think of getting 1/2x6" board (not tapered) and fitting it over the old.. The look should be the same, and installation easy.
I know there is an issue with window and door trim.
