Asbestos siding can be painted. It is easier to paint than other sidings, such as wood, because it is not very porous, and it requires only a minimal number of coats for full coverage.
Asbestos siding is no longer used in new construction, because it is a health risk if the siding breaks down and particles become airborne. When prepping asbestos siding for painting, scraping should be avoided, and power washing should be attempted only if the shingles are in good condition. Otherwise, scrubbing with a brush and soapy water is the best way to clean the siding before painting. Paint lasts a long time on asbestos siding and helps maintain the integrity of the shingles.Learn More
