Asbestos Siding


So - if one wanted to connect something like a deck frame (would like to extend existing deck all the way to house) to the side of a house that is shingled in really old asbestos siding - what would one use or how would one go about doing it without breaking siding? Please note - total carpenter - tard here! But am loving the hand saw since I figured it out! Gotta build something now!

Might try a carbide tipped drill bit sized to the lag bolt that you will use to secure to the house.

Always remember to unplug the hand saw when not in use

Have graduated to rechargables! Due to cord cutting incident.....

will look up "lagbolt" along with "carbide" But was really hoping "liquid nails" would be somewhere in the answer.

Asbestos Siding


Have you considered a free standing deck independant of any connection to the house? This would eliminate any cutting of the siding. This type of deck is pretty common around here.

I extended the front part of the deck to meet up with concrete using this method (kind of) I built the frame and then attached it to the front of the deck before placing decking. Worked great and I was able to compensate for the concrete not being level. I just wasn't sure how it would work right next to the house - I figured I would need some sort of attachment between the 2. Can you get away with out attaching (deck will be about a foot to a foot and a half off the ground to comepnesate for the house (on piers).

Asbestos Siding


When we have a customer request a deck without an attachment to the house. We pour footings and place sonotubes approx 18" from the foundation. We then place the uprights on the sonotube and attach them with Simpson Strong-Tie adjustable stand-off bases. This allows a cantilever of less that 24" unsupported that can follow the line of your house. It is generally accepted that a cantilever not exceed 24" unsupported.

Asbestos Siding


I did this. I bought some replacement siding that did not contain asbestos; if you really look around you may find something that is close. Then I wet down the old siding and removed it in whole pieces, and threw them out. I cut the new siding to size with a masonry blade and a circular saw. Another option is to rent a tile wet-saw, but make sure it can handle the length of the siding.
