I did some research (including contacting the county's health department) and everyone seems to say that as long as the siding is in good shape it should not be a problem. The siding seems to be in good shape but we would of course have this verified by an inspector. We could also have the siding removed, which would cost about $5,000, plus the cost of re-siding the house. We were fully prepared to buy the house before we learned about the siding. I don't know if this should be a dealbreaker or not. Is it crazy to buy a house covered in a known hazardous substance?
