I bought an old duplex to rehab and it has asbestos shingle siding. A few are broken or missing. I know you can't get asbestos shingles anymore but does anyone know of a replacement shingle that would look similar? I will paint over it so the color doesn't matter.

Becky,

It looks like we are having the same problem. Last night I found a website www.sidingmatch.com The service identifies the siding you have and they tell you a couple of places or name a couple of companies that sell recycled siding. Unfortunately they charge $75 just to tell you where yo can get it. For me that is too much since all I need is a couple of panels that would run for about the same price. If you are willing to pay their fees I would suggest using them.
Good luck!

Before you go spending all that money for some company to try to tell you what kind of siding you have...Try the local home improvement stores. I have aesbestos siding and was able to find replacement pieces at the depot. Instead of being made of aesbestos they were made from cement. Good Luck.
