i wrote a short time ago but i'm still pondering my own personal remedy. we have what i think is asbestos siding on our house, and wanting to remove it and replace with vinyl. some say cement i don't know if it could be something other than asbestos. the problem is what i can do with it after i take it off. were adding two rooms and a bath on the back of our house and it will have vinyl siding on it. i would like to strip the siding off the whole house and apply the insulation sheathing and vinyl siding to entire house. we are also installing new windows and some other improvements and i would like it to be done right and look nice. i will try to find out locally about the makeup of the siding itself but if you have any input i would appreciate it. thanks.
