What kind of siding is this?


I know Asbestos is a scary word as it should be but removing that product (if it contains it) is not as scary as you may think.

Do some research on removing Asbestos Siding.

Search this site there has been many threads on the subject.

Thanks for the help. I just found the site I'm sure I will have a lot more questions later. I Only paid 6500 for the house so it needs a lot of work.

That doesn't look like anything that will make dust. Any asbestos would be contained in/by the asphalt. Asbestos siding are hard, ridgid, brittle shingle looking things. They break if dropped and the fibers are visible. It may contain some asbestos but it doesn't look like a hazardous form.

Buds right........I live in an saint louis, mo (inner city)and this siding is all over the city and county . Some neighbors say they've had it tested for asbestos and it was negative......most dont care. It looks pretty brittle like hardi but it's 35-45yrs old ???....I'd bet money that it's got asbestos ( most things that needed to be strong/tough had it) but who knows????

Edit..I didnt see the second set of photo's It does look like a wood/fiber based material.........Theres a lot of old siding (brittle cement type, most likley asbestos) in saint louis. I still would'nt rule out the big "A" but who cares it's in 90% of houses built post war, at least it's on the outside of yours.
