The homeowner should not cut or sand asbestos siding. Dust containing asbestos fibers can be inhaled. Asbestos siding can be replaced with modern and safer siding material. Asbestos siding can be completely removed or covered over.
Like aluminum and vinyl siding, asbestos cement shingles may cover decayed or insect-infested wood. Check for loose, cracked, or broken pieces. Check around all window and door trim for signs of deterioration.
