I'd like to hang shutters by my windows,to dress the house up for curb appeal,to help better a sale on my home.
The house is a cape cod,built in 1950 and has wonderful asbestos siding on it,which I recently had painted. This siding is in 100%,perfect condition the entire way around the house.
I've searched this DIY forum for some tips on drilling asbestos siding,but the closest I found was folks discussing cutting holes in asbestos siding. Never really mentioning any drilling techniques.
I am hell bent on hanging these shutters cause myself and my real estate agent think they would look great and help the sale.
My questions(s): What is the best technique for drilling asbestos,shingle siding,without cracking or breaking the siding itself?
What type of bit would I use?
What type of anchoring would I use to secure lightweight,plastic (wood simulated) shutters?
Yes...I am well aware of the hazards of working with airborne asbestos dust. I have done extensive research and I got all the necc. safety gear to work with it. Gloves,safety glasses and safety sheild and a charcoal canister dust mask.
Keep in mind,I am not removing,repairing or replacing the asbestos siding...just looking to drill some holes without cracking or breaking what is already in place.
thank you all in advance for any tips you might have.
I'll log back in tomorrow morning when I get off work
