WeatherSide fiber cement siding is the 1 and only solution for replacing or repairing old asbestos siding shingles. It's available in a variety of sizes and shapes to match many of the old siding shingles installed over the last 60-years.

It's 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.

Hello, this product is designed for use as siding, not for use as eave and fascia boards. You may want to consider other manufacturers that offer fiber-cement eave, fascia or other trim boards for your project. Thank you for your question.

Thank your for your question. Unfortunately, there isn't a perfect answer, as the previously installed tiles may be brittle. The best advice is to use a small pry bar to loosen the nails on the damaged tile and be very gentle/careful when doing so in order to minimize damaged to the existing good tiles.

How close to these shingle match 1940 asbestos shingle siding

Asked by BD February 3, 2019

Answers

Hello, although these are designed to closely replicate the look of old asbestos siding, unfortunately there really is no way to guarantee that it will be an exact match all old asbestos siding shingles, especially those from as far back as 1940. Thank you for your question.

Close match to the old asbestos siding

I gave the product excellent ratings. I think it is durable and close match to the old siding. However it was difficult to work with. Drill holes with only sharp carbide drills. I had to sharpen myself to get a quality hole. To much drilling pressure and the siding will crack. I used Carbide coated saber saw blades to cut. Worked good but slow cutting. Be careful nailing. Miss the nail and siding will shatter. Be careful nailing tight or it will shatter. This is good stuff, probably last a very long time but difficult to work with. It is also very thin, 3/16 or less. This feature huge asset because I could install siding behind the drip edging for water tightness. Material delivered to my home in good condition. Glad the job is done.

When using with older siding to replace or aligning up with a add on section of the house you have to drill holes when they overlap previous row. Very time consuming with predrilled holes being too low.

I chose this product to match current siding as for its material, thickness and design nothing I can say but good the only down fall is if you nail it, it's fragile and if you decide to remove it, it'll break for sure but I moved around that and used screws special for outside,also cutting it need special attention,manufacture said use tile cutter since I don't have it I use dremel and the job went smooth with Good finish,I'll recommend it if you careful

I don't think it was the shipping method because the box was in great shape when it arrived. However, the top two pieces were split down the middle and the third one down was cracked, when I went to pick up each piece carefully, they started breaking just from picking them up. These are not very durable and crack very easily. Side note: I am not an expert on siding so maybe that's just how they are supposed to be. Regardless, I returned them. One thing I did like about them was their size. They were nice and small pieces compared to 20 foot long siding panels.

Response from GAFProductExpertMay 3, 2018
We're sorry to hear of your experience with WeatherSide Purity Straight 12" Fiber-Cement Siding. By nature of the product construction, WeatherSide Fiber- Cement Siding Shingles are not very flexible. They are, however, an excellent alternative to old non-existant asbestos siding shingles, without the expense of new siding for the whole house. gaf

The Weatherside fiber cement shingles matched my old asbestos containing shingles perfectly. Removed a window during a bathroom remodel, and these exterior shingles, once painted, will make it so you will not be able to tell there was ever a window.

One of the difficulties of our "modern" world is finding matching products for materials from 40 or more years old. These shingles match up perfectly with the old "sealed asbestos" siding on one of our outbuildings. Very pleased.
