I need to find a product that looks similar to the asbestos shingles that are currently on my house. They are in good shape, but some were damaged when we removed and rebuilt our deck. The siding shingles are 12" x 24", 5/16" thick and have a striated, almost wood grain finish. Does anyone know of a good replacement product? Thanks for the info!

I just moved out of a home that had this type of siding. The way I replaced the broken tiles was to take a piece to my local lumber shop and they got me a cement type that most closely resembled the broken tiles.

In looking at old replies to replacing asbestos siding shingles, I'm wondering if anyone still has any out there that have nail holes pre-drilled. I need replacements for my garage. I'll paint so any light color will do. I need 12"x24" shingles, wavy or straight, doesn't matter.
