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.

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 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
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
