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.

Customer Questions & Answers

How many shingles are in a bundle?

Asked by: MrsP
19 shingles per bundle - plastic wrapped
Answered by: Marco

How many square feet does 1 bundle cover? What is the typical waste calculation, 10% or more?

Asked by: Bear
If installed as recommended - 33 sq feet. When I installed 4 bundles, on two gables, which meant a lot of angle cuts, I figured 15% wand ordered accordingly, but my waste (and errors) averaged 10%. Your mileage may vary.

Weatherside Purity Thatched 12 in. x 24 in. Fiber Cement Shingle Siding is rated 2.9 out of 5 by 14.
Rated 1 out of 5 by from Absolutely terrible installation method! I won't ever use this again.... Absolutely terrible installation method! I won't ever use this again. Breakage was 50% - took two (2) pieces to get one that fit, the other would break while trying to install. Dumbest product installation method ever conceived. Like nailing up glass. DO NOT USE THIS PRODUCT!!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from concrete fiber siding Here's what's not made clear in the product specs...cement fiber siding will shatter with just a sideways glance if temperatures are anything less than 60 degrees. This product shattered when cut, shattered when nailed, and shattered when hurled to the ground out of sheer frustration. Installed on 45 to 50 degree day. Wasted over 20% of product via breakage. Attempted to warm material indoors, but even attachment through previously installed tiles caused materials to shatter underneath. Would not attempt to install product again unless exterior in direct sunlight on plus 70 degree day...IMO. OTHER THAN THAT, product was difficult to cut and created endless clouds of concrete dust from masonry blade. Finished product...very little relief with only 1/4 inch thickness. Impact of shingle very subtle...might as well be lap siding.

Almost an exact match to the existing old asbestos tiles on my 1925 garage. It is noticeable they are a different stagger then the originals but that is fine to match the addition that was put on the back of the garage. I used a kick shear to cut the tiles, and out of all the tiles only one got slight surface cracks in it while being cut. None broke during the actual installation, even when I missed a nail and hit the tile very hard. I cut on for a close fit with a notch in it and used the band saw with wood blade for that. Installation was easy and the directions were very clear and concise but did lack an exposure dimension. That was easily ascertained. Just measure up 10.5 inches from top of the first course to snap your next chalk line. All boxes of tiles arrived unbroken and very well packaged. The tiles took paint very well. I would recommend this product.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good Product But Take Care Installing I had to replace some old wood fiber shake style siding that had moisture damage from shrubs sitting against it. It took some prep work because the pieces are 2 feet long and did not hit the 16 inch gaps of the studs. Had to put up some strips to attach them to. They come with three pre-drilled holes each, but better have a drill and masonry bit, because you'll need more. They also break fairly easily so make sure not to hit with your hammer or drop. Otherwise, I have a pretty close match and hard to see the difference after painting.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Challenging but does - eventually - the job Unlike other reviews, my package was delivered unbroken. However, working with fiber-cement requires to be very, very calm... As mentioned, it is very easy to break the shingles. When I was not breaking the shingles, I was breaking the drill-bits while attempting to drill holes for the nails (if anyone has a tip to make holes in this material, feel free to share). Despite using a diamond blade from DeWalt for my circular saw, the finish cut was far from being perfect. The process of sawing is also rather unpleasant as tons of micro-bits fly everywhere: it is a must to protect your eyes. I regret that these shingles are not sold in smaller packages as I only needed five of them. Also, paint does not stick very well. Anyway, there are no alternatives for this product on the market and, at the end of the day - despite all the trouble -, my wall looked much better.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Worked out well We ordered these to side an old porch that we were closing in on an old house. Looked great. We used a wet saw for cutting which made the job easier and much less dusty. The product was shipped to the house via Pitt Ohio. The freight company personnel were friendly and courteous. The HD price was super reasonable considering the free delivery. It is an expensive product but I was able to return 1 bundle because there was less waste than expected.
