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.

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!

Rated 4.3 out of 5 by 37 reviewers.
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by GREAT PRODUCT worked perfect, matched the old siding in size and in texture August 21, 2016
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Brittle The siding panels were very hard to work with. I found it difficult to nail or screw without it breaking or shattering. I threw half of them away. August 17, 2016
Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by siding Seems to be all that was advertised....looks great!! August 17, 2016
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Matches the original. This comes as close to the original you can find. The siding is primed, so I matched the color and painted them before installing. Next spring, when it warms up, I'll give it all a coat of paint and it will look like the original. You'll need a masonry saw blade and drill bit, but other than that it's not a tough product to work with, although it's a little touchy. Just be a little careful. December 22, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by 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. June 28, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Asbestos shingle replacement There's nothing wrong with asbestos shingles for the outside of the house. But the house we bought at many broken pieces of shingle. We decided to find out if there was a replacement shingle for those 1950 that's best to shingles. The GAF shingle with an exact replica with predrilled holes making installation a snap July 19, 2016
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Perfect for my needs. It matched exactly the siding I currently have on my house. June 28, 2016
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Good match for existing shingles. Same size as original shingles. Nice to have predrilled holes for installation. They fit perfectly. The order arrived within 10 days after I ordered it. I expected 3 or 4 more days. Too bad you can't just order them 1 or 2 at a time instead of an entire box. Good product but very pricey.
