Older Ohio home with cement asbestos siding,would you pass on this rehab.Siding is in very good shape , but I have concerns regarding proper disclosure and resale problems.
I have a bunch of houses with asbestos siding. It’s not a big deal. You can paint it or cover it with vinyl siding - no problem. The only issue is that it will need to go to a hazardous waste dump if you decide to remove it. For that reason, I never remove it.
It will last forever too. When i’m inspecting a property wrapped in vinyl siding, I always hope its asbestos under it and not junk like rotten Masonite.
Not a problem if its not falling off. Lots of houses have asbestos siding, and lots of schools have asbestos flooring! :X
If its not ‘coming up’, they dont consider it an issue. If the paint is not pealing, I paint it, otherwise side over it with vinyl.
