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.

Can you avoid drilling extra holes by using some kind of adhesive to add strength while installing?

These are rather heavy and adhesive would not hold as well as nailing. I would not suggest adhesive unless it is a small filler piece you need

The GAF product is basically a replacement for the old asbestos siding shingles, without the asbestos. Hardie brand board or "Hardie Plank" consists of long planks, similar to clapboards.

Normally corners are handled by installing GAF's "L" shaped metal corner pieces. They are available in white but can be painted any color. GAF sells them direct if they can not be ordered thru Home Depot.

This product is perfect. Purchased 2 boxes for a gable area. They arrived undamaged, pre drilled for nails and nicely primed. Cuts nice and smooth with a Cement board blade in a circular saw. Took drill bits just fine where I needed to add nails. Same product as Hardi Board, just half the thickness. Highly recommend.

Not sure if I would recommend this or not. I put these on a shed I built and it turned out pretty nice, but I found these shingles difficult to work with. Maybe it's just me being an amateur, but the shingles break or crack easily - especially when driving nails. I found out quickly that I had to drill holes for the nails (I was not using an air nailer), or the shingle would crack. As it is, I know the the shingle underneath the top layer would crack when driving in a nail. Overall, I like the finished look, but I would look for a different product if I had to do another job.

Response from GAFProductExpertSep 1, 2020
Hello, thank you for your purchase and for the feedback. To help other folks, these siding shingles do come with pre-drilled nail holes from the factory, so most of the pre-drilling is not required unless you have smaller pieces to install around details. In that case, we recommend pre-drilling to avoid any potential cracking. Also, hand nailing is highly recommended. Unlike typical vinyl siding or other types of "modern" siding, this is manufactured out of fiber-cement to replicate the look of old non-existant asbestos shingles, which in themselves also required care during installation. Thank you again for your valued feedback. gaf
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.

Hello, thank you for your feedback, but the fasteners are visible on this product. This is the particular design of this shingle to match old asbestos-style shingles. The product comes with pre-drilled nail holes which when installed are at the lower portion of each course. Thank you. gaf
