I am planning to a buy a house in NHP NY. I saw some of the houses with asbestos siding on it. I would like to know, how much it gonna cost me to remove asbestos from 3 sides of an average 4 bedroom( 2 floor above ground) house ? and how much is the cost for new siding for the same

I have heard a lot of professionals going out to remove this asbestos siding. It's hard to say how much it's going to cost you because there are professionals that do it in different ways. I have heard of removers charging by the hour, or by the square foot of siding removed. What kind of siding are you considering replacing it with? http://www.classicremodeling-nj.com

The costs can vary depending on the size of the project. You should get a couple of quotes and see what the average price would be. That would be the best way to know what it might potentially cost to remove the asbestos.

Hi Prasanth, you do not want to disturb the asbestos, because it is dangerous. That is why agents are suggesting it be covered by a professional. A licensed contractor will be able to price the cover up for you, but they would have to look at the property first.

It is recommended not to remove it. the usual solution is to just put vinyl siding over it.

Don't remove ... Just cover! Extra insulation and no cost so it's a win win

Encapsulation is approved by the EPA and FHA. Put siding on that bad boy and be done with it.

I don't think putting in extra insulation is going to solve your problem. You should remove the asbestos. It's dangerous, and I don't think covering it with extra insulation is a good idea. I think getting rid of it is the better option. http://www.asbestop.com.au

I wouldn't remove it
I would encapsulate it.
That is by simply siding over it.
Call your local contractor for details
