Painting over exterior asbestos siding

We have a home that has exterior asbestos siding and I would like to know how best to paint over this siding.  What is the best primer to use etc.  We have already been told that there is no reason to abate the asbestos as it is restricted to the exterior.

Do you have the same question? Follow this Question

Asbestos siding typically doesn’t require any special treatment, unless you have a problem like chalk or mold that’s been painted over. If there isn’t a problem, you can go ahead and use whatever primer and paint you prefer. Thanks for your question!
