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: 
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.

Answer: 
Dear Victor, although GAF's WeatherSide Purity Thatched Shingles are very similar in size and shape to many of the old non-existent asbestos shingles, it's hard to be 100% sure they are an exact match. You may want to contact our technical team for further information at 877-GAF-ROOF (877-423-7663), Option 2.

Rated 2.9 out of 5 by 8 reviewers.
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by 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. October 22, 2016
Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by 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. August 30, 2016
Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Funky installation design Very brittle, requires nails to show, requires pre drilling the lap-over courses, does take paint well. August 9, 2016
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by 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. January 19, 2016
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Junk This product is very difficult to install. It breaks easy. Do not purchase this unless you are replacing the exact same thing and must use it. There are many other options on the market that look better and are much easier to install December 8, 2015
Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by 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. August 7, 2014
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by 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. April 9, 2013
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by 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. November 1, 2010
