Product Overview

Weatherside fiber cement siding is the one and only solution for replacing or repairing old asbestos siding shingles. It is available in a variety of sizes and shapes to match many of the old siding shingles installed over the last 60 years. Unlike some of the original siding shingles that it replaces, Weatherside pre-primed siding shingles contain no asbestos. It is easy to install, after properly removing the old siding, simply nail the WeatherSide siding in place and paint. WeatherSide is even resistant to warping, denting, rotting, expansion/contraction and termite infiltration.

Our asbestos shingles actually measure a length of about 25 and a half inches. How would that work with replacement

Our shingles are the straight ones with the vertical lines. Why the difference? If they measure 24 inches, what am I supposed to do? We are both sheet metal workers and that is our expertise.

Answer: 
these siding tiles measure 12" high and 24" long. If you have several in a row to replace, you could just use the 24" tiles and then cut a smaller piece to fill in the gap at the end. It might not line up to the other tiles, but if the tiles are all staggered it should work fine. I cut mine simply by scoring the cut line with a razor blade and then breaking it carefully over a piece of 2x4. Also, if you Read More

Answer: 
The shingles come in 2 sizes, one is roughly 12x24, the other is roughly 16x32. The holes are predrilled. You'd have to measure the height of your shingle to get the correct size.

They can definitely be cut with a wet/tile saw, but your saw will need to be able to handle pieces of 12"x24" in size. Only the big tile saws can handle this size. I found that just by scoring the cut lines with a razor blade about 10 times and then breaking it over a 2x4 worked well without having to actually cut it.

Answer: 
Dear Fred, we recommend using a GAF Shingle Cutter for rapid, efficient cutting, punching, and notching. A diamond blade saw may also be used. And, another method is scoring and snapping. Also, all WeatherSide siding shingles come with pre-drilled fastener holes. For technical support, please call 877-GAF-ROOF (877-423-7663), Option 5. Our team is happy to help!

Answer: 
I had NO breakage in the bundle I received. They were packaged well with thick cardboard protection and industrial bubble wrap. It was delivered via UPS and was marked fragile. Since they come out to be about $6 a piece, if you get any broken when they arrive, I would call them and get them to send you replacements for sure!

Weatherside Profile12 12 in. x 24 in. Fiber Cement Shingle Siding is rated 4.3 out of 5 by 48.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good asbestos replacement I just needed two tiles to replace some asbestos siding that was broken on my house. This fit and worked fine for me. There is one thing that could be an issue if you are replacing a lot, though. The nail holes are about a half inch lower than in the old tile it was replacing, so the bottom edge ends up about a half inch higher than the surrounding old tile. That was ok for my application but could be a problem for others, so take that into consideration. And this stuff is basically a thin sheet of cement, so it's kind of brittle and you have to handle accordingly. All in all, though, it was pretty much exactly what I needed and I'm glad I found it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great replacement siding tiles The replacement siding tiles are a perfect replacement for the old asbestos siding tiles on old homes. These replaced the broken siding tiles on a 1938 home and matched perfectly. They are the only ones I could find that matched! They are pricey though.....$106 for 18 12"x24" tiles which is about $6 each. However, I would buy them again. They worked great and installed pretty easily with pre-drilled holes. I did not have to cut any piece with a tile saw - I scored the cut line with a razor blade about 10 times or so and broke it along the line and it worked perfect except for one piece. However, if you have to drill any additional holes, you must you a diamond tip drill bit or you will break/crack the tile. If you need to cut a piece and scoring it with a razor blade won't work, then you must use a diamond tipped blade or a wet tile saw. I would highly advise wearing a face mask also if you are going to cut them and dust is going to be kicked up.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from An extremely close match to old asbestos siding Comes primed and is a very close match to old asbestos siding. I purchased a box when I needed to close up a window. The only difference between this and my asbestos siding is the asbestos also had nail holes at the bottom too (these don't make much sense though, so not having them is something of an improvement).

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Very fragile and crackable 1950s cement siding is much thicker and stronger than this. Weathersides need to be thicker and more flexible. Too expensive for being so fragile. Especially the edges are fragile and break easily. Maybe a flex metal mesh to make them stronger? Call me GAF Signed. Female in Florida Heights

Some of the boxes on the palette had chipped corners so the shipping and handling needs to step up the quality. We were able to partially use the other half of chipped boxes for cuts though a full box of half the tiles were wasted.
