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.

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.

Can these be stained with a solid stain?

I have cedar shingle siding on my home. I have a woodpecker problem so I would like to replace the wood shingles that are damaged with these shingles that match the thatched pattern of my cedar. Since the woodpeckers are territorial I only need to do a small area. My question is whether these primed tiles can be stained with a solid color stain to match the cedar. It sounds extreme, but I need to deter the woodpeckers and replacing the siding on the whole house is too extreme
Asked by: Mongo
Hi, and thank you for your WeatherSide Purity Thatched Fiber Cement Siding question. We recommend a durable exterior grade paint for best results. However, please consult the manufacturer of the desired stain to ensure the product can be applied to fiber-cement substrates. Please call our technical team at 877-GAF-ROOF (877-423-7663), Option 5. They’re happy to help!

Weatherside Purity Thatched 12 in. x 24 in. Fiber Cement Shingle Siding is rated 2.8 out of 5 by 12.

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 5 out of 5 by from Worked very well Bought these to redo old paint peeling hail-damaged ship-lap siding gables on '50's house. Put tar paper over the old siding, nailed these on, painted, and looks great! Had no trouble cutting them - used an antique asbestos shingle cutter (like a giant heavy-duty paper cutter) I found on eBay that worked perfectly with these. Small cuts for notching around a pipe, I used an old diamond blade tile saw I had. Did not have to drill any holes as the shingles are all pre-drilled - and you really don't need more than the holes provided, and maybe some epoxy on the back of any small pieces. Gentile touch needed for nailing - you nail just to the surface then STOP. If you try to sink the nail head into the shingle - it will break.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Shingles I did not like them. They were paper thin. There were no instructions on how to install them. Our contractor put them on upside down so the shingles are straight across instead of staggered because the nail bikes were inward the bottom of the shingle instead of the top. So in order to hide the nails the they had to turn them upside down which gave it a straight edge.

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.

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.
