I have a question about having new windows installed in my home.
I live in a small Cape Cod house built in 1945. It has the original asbestos siding on it.
Recently, we have been thinking about getting new windows. The frame unit is poor and will need to be fully rebuilt in, most likely, all 12 of our windows. Therefore, I am assuming new construction windows are needed.
How would they go about doing this if we have asbestos siding? Would they still cut away around the window in order to properly flash them?
Or...we also want to have the siding done. We were planning on vinyl over the asbestos. Therefore, would they be able to flash the windows over the asbestos siding then when they do the new siding?
No one that I've contacted is really explaining the process to me including the condition that we have asbestos siding - only how it's done "normally" where "normally" is defined by people without asbestos siding.
Does anyone have any experience with this and can point me in the correct direction, so I don't waste both time and money?
