A few days ago, a couple of guys showed up and started tearing the siding off of the neighborhood’s latest suburban renewal project. It won’t be long now until this old house will be a fond memory. I guess that’s the way it goes in our throw-away society.
The reason they are removing the siding prior tearing the house down is for Asbestos Abatement. The original siding on the house contained asbestos. They had to remove the current siding to get at the original asbestos shingles, which they then removed, packaged up and hauled away to a disposal facility.
Stay tuned for more on this latest suburban renewal project.
