  1. Try a multitool with a carbide blade it will cut the nails in no time
  2. Where's your mask home boy
  3. hacksaw blade cuts the nailhead off
  4. DPI... please: use the DPI !
  5. You need to be wearing protective wear and even if you are being careful, you will be exposed to that stuff.
  6. How to install Asbesto Shingle the properly way Perry ? Any tips ?
  7. Is the secret don't use any breathing protection? Because what you can get from asbestos is no secret
  8. I wouldn't want to be paying this guy by the hour. Easiest and quickest way is to grab a sawsall and run the saw behind the siding and cut those nails and your done!
  9. I don't think this guy has ever removed any asbestos siding, he must be an office person,or an inspector, or have all the time in the world to complete the job,not only that h3 must of bid the job for big buck go back to your desk fellow
  10. Its all crap.. I have been installing vinyl siding for 32 years and have ripped over 1000 houses with so called asbestos siding. Before the EPA got involved with no masks no suits and no protection. I have been tested and have had my lungs tested and I have no signs of asbestos poisoning what so ever! The amount of asbestos in most of these shingles is a small percentage they are made mostly of a concrete substance. We break it up and inhale it 3 times a month and my crew and I are all fine..
  11. At that rate it will take a month to remove them. Just vinyl side over top for better insulation.
  12. Where the hell is the rest of the video?  All I hear is that reporter talking!  It just cuts off, the most important thing.
  13. Seriously, that man needs to have at least a hazmat suit and a respirator on even if he's just pulling the nails. Pulling nails will still put asbestos in the air. Crazy.
  14. i hope you know how dangerous asbestos is!
  15. A nightmare to be sure - there's no easy, quick solution.

    And they don't give away those (non-asbestos) replacement shingles that break if you look at them hard.  The best bet is getting them off a tear down, etc.

    The end nippers are a must - along with gobs of patience.  Aluminum nails are relatively easy to deal with because they can be sheared off with a stout  putty knife (which you slide under the shingle) and a hammer.  But pulling them is far preferable.  Good luck on those nails not breaking, though.

    Stainless steel nails are a different matter.  They must be pulled, and often they are tenacious, residing as they are in old, _hard_wood.  A sheared off nail head can present a problem, if you're looking to replace that shingle later.  New (drilled) hole, caulk up the old hole...yikes.

    Being way up on a ladder doesn't help - the pulled nails will come out suddenly sometimes, and you could lose your balance.  So bending the nails out slowly as shown is a must.  You might want to think about a good dust mask also.  Think about that real hard.

    The real pain is the hidden nails up under the top edge of each shingle, where a partial removal (say around a window) is sometimes necessary.  Then sometimes you must resort to a hacksaw blade to blind saw them suckers off.

    Oh, and did I mention?  Contractors will make an infuriating mess if you're looking to keep the asbestos siding but are just having repairs/retro-fitting done.  Hit a lick... and then head to the barn - except for the ones who simply tell you, "We refuse to deal with those things."
  16. In Massachusetts, They make us set up a poly containment now. We use a boom lift for high elevations and have to make a poly containment on the carriage and seal to house area were removing. It's insane !!!
  17. excellent video..thanks
  18. This guy is right on. I 've owned a house since '77 with asbestos roof shingles that was built in '43 mostly by women, all of the men were overseas fighting. I coated it last year with airport runway sealer and it looks brand new! Just remember don't drill, sand or break it and nothing to be afraid of. I wonder how many fiberglass shingles would last that long? I bet none!
  19. Lol! Love the post 2 below!
