Customer Questions & Answers

can the shingles be cut shorter

I am trying to replace broken asbestos shingles, the length of the broken shingles varies. Can they be cut down from the 32 inches. If they can, what would be the best way to cut the shingles.
Asked by: KMD
Yes you can cut them. I used a razor blade to score the shingles several times before breaking them on the edge of something straight and sturdy. Unfortunately, this does not always turn out as planned and the perfectly good shingle is now scrap. The other way that you may try is to use a wet saw. You can rent one from the home depot or elsewhere.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect match for the old, existing shingles These shingles were a perfect match to the old shingles on the house. They are somewhat gray in color so I will be painting everything to match. The price was a shock but there aren't many suppliers of this product so they can get whatever the market will bear. I use a tile wet saw to cut these so every cut was perfect. At $8 per shingle I couldn't afford breaks and mistakes. I used a masonry bit to drill holes on the cut tiles. As long as the hole is supported on four sides and you use medium, steady pressure; you should have no problems with breaks. Have them delivered to the store and open the boxes in the store before you take them home. They are very-well packaged but they can still break if the boxes are mishandled. Again...$8 each.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great replacement product. This is a great replacement for that pesky asbestos siding. Looks exactly like my existing siding. Easy to score and break. Use a diamond tipped bit for drilling holes and ceramic jigsaw blade for tricky cuts. I had a few pieces break while working with them but not nearly as many as I feared. The only problem I had was the replacement shingles are 9" and my shingles are 8.5". So I had to drill holes in every shingle to make it match the existing but it was not too difficult. I will blame that on my siding. They can't make a replacement shingle for every type out there. Five stars.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from perfect match In the process of installing an AC system I had to go through existing siding containing asbestos. I was able to safely remove a bit of the existing siding and replace it with this product that was not dangerous to work with. It matches perfectly and is easy to cut by scoring and snapping.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Overall, a good product. This cement siding replaced some of my asbestos cement siding that had broken or cracked. There are no other materials on the market that replicate the asbestos siding like this product. I scored the siding several times with a razor blade, then lined the siding on a sharp surface, then broke the scored piece off. Overall, I broke quite a bit of the siding while breaking it in this manner. It would be ideal to use a wet saw to cut the siding, but renting a wet saw was not an option for me. The siding is very brittle and can also be expensive if you break a lot of them. The product is about $7.50 each shingle. I will still recommend this product because although it is expensive per shingle, it is much cheaper than buying an all new and inferior vinyl product to replace all siding. I also purchased the special nails for the siding, which are identical to the original nails that were in the asbestos siding. I recommend the nails as well since they are identical and already primed and ready for paint. Although, again, the nails are even more over-priced than the siding.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Poor quality, absurd pricing These shingles are a perfect match to the old asbestos siding, however they can not be handled, drilled or cut without damaging them. Any sightest impact destroys them. The price has more than doubled in just a year or so. These should be available for no more 2/3 the price of other cement board siding products, it is less than 1/2 as thick and is other fiber cement as well. The pricing is absurd. Cedar is actually cheaper! I would reccommend changing all your siding to another type one wall at a time. If you need to replace asbestos shingles then find them used in real asbestos or change to another siding. THis stuff is awful. There used to be a special tool that punched and sheared this type of material. HD does not have nor rent the tool. Not sure if it would work on this product as it is extremely brittle to begin with.
