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.

Answer: 
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.

Answer: 
Hello, the shingles may be cut shorter (or to size), but we recommend a chop cutter or diamond blade saw be used. Also, scoring and snapping can be done. Thank you for your question.

Rated 4.2 out of 5 by 13 reviewers.
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by 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. August 17, 2016
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by 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. July 25, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Replacement asbestos siding Good product. Great fit. As described.............. July 12, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by 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. April 25, 2014
Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Close to the original Terrible to cut, but comes close to the old siding October 6, 2015
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Perfect match Great replacement for damaged asbestos shingles. Perfect match. I used a wet saw to cut and a standard drill bit for pilot holes. June 24, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Product as described. The cement shingles are a good replacement for the old asbestos slate shingles used for siding in the grand old days! Pleased with the product ! June 24, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by 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. December 11, 2010
