How can I drill to add nail holes on corners to affix trim over siding on exterior of house?
Asked by: chris
You can drill it, but you must use a masonry bit, and you must be very careful. It breaks easier than glass. Very difficult to deal with. I don't recommend it.

Weatherside Purity Straight 12 in. x 24 in. Fiber Cement Shingle Siding is rated 4.4 out of 5 by 61.

This time every one of them had a hairline crack that was very hard to see. If you weren't careful how you picked them up out of the box they would break in half. I was still able to put them up and caulk the crack and paint. No problems so far.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Saved the sale of my house! The only thing we failed on the inspection of our house sale was a few cracked asbestos tiles along the bottom row. The "correct" way to deal with it is to caulk and paint to encapsulate it, but the buyer didn't want that, and honestly I agree. Hiring someone to deal with it would've almost certainly led to complete remediation or residing the house, and I would've just stopped the sale before that happened. Instead I found these for $125, spent about 30 minutes swapping them out, threw on a little paint, and now the buyer even has some spare tiles for the future. If you're just popping some old tiles off and nailing these on, there's no dust involved. Thankfully someone else mentioned ordering the nails as well, and I couldn't agree more. One bag is more than enough. The box had 16 shingles in it and none were cracked in transit. I broke 1 doing some test fitting. My existing siding has a slight wave to it, but the wavy ones they have here are more aggressive, and I've seen them on other houses since I installed these. I'm definitely glad I went with straight. Maybe I'll come back and upload a picture/link sometime.

I needed this product to match some existing asbestos siding after removing some doors and installing a new patio door. This product is extremely expensive and very fragile. I used a wet saw to cut it and didn't have any problems. We did crack a few pieces after nailing them up. We did have to face nail in a few places and you must pre-drill!!!! Make sure you make the hole large enough, you do not want the nail biting any of the edge when hammering it up. You will crack the siding. If I could do it again, I would have just resided the entire side of the house with James Hardie board.

I was forced to buy this product, in order to replace some broken pieces on my home. It is the most horrible junk EVER, in the history of EVER. It is difficult to cut, difficult to drill (necessary to drill holes on pieces that are odd sizes to fit in some areas)....it dulled my blades and masonry bits, BUT it is the MOST brittle stuff I've ever dealt with. It will break easier than glass. All of these problems, combined with the VERY expensive price, makes this product terrible. There HAS to be a better way to make a product to match the old asbestos siding pieces. It seems this manufacturer is taking advantage of consumers because of the lack of other manufactures making a replacement product to match the old asbestos pieces. Not cool.

They matched my old asbestos shingles fairly well - you have to look hard to notice the difference after they are painted. They break easily so you need to be careful when installing. I'm not giving a 5th star because I would think the manufacturer could add some type of nylon or fiber mesh to make for a more durable, quality product.

My old siding pieces are an old off white color and the two colors don't match. Guess I'll have to paint the whole house. Great product other than that.
