Need to spec a product to replace damaged asbestos siding and my two main suppliers have nothing. I would assume that there's a cement board product to fill the need.

Can anyone lend some assistance? Existing product has 11" exposure and 27" width and vertical grain. There's only a few damaged pieces going verticle up the corner of the house.

You need a snap cutter. They come straight, waby and staggered. You of course need straight.
Work slowly and with care damaged areas grow easy. I use nail pullers to try and grab the head of the nail and wiggle them out. Sometimes I run into double nailed siding. Thats the worst case. You have the nails you can see then bind nails up at the top under the course above. A multi tool to slice these may be the ticket.
