Question What is this stuff, and where can I find it?

Hi all,

I added a deck to my house, and replaced an existing window with a door for direct access to the deck. In that process, I had some asbestos siding removed, and am now trying to replace that. When I bought the house, there were four replacement tiles in the basement (I think it is some type of cement fiber). So, I used that, and now I need about three more tiles. But, I can't find the stuff anywhere! I thought I might be able to use some more modern cement fiber product (e.g., Jame Hardie), but it all looks quite different from what I have.

So, my question is ... what is this stuff? ... you can see it at

If anyone can identify it, and give me some thoughts on where I might get some more of it, I would seriously appreciate it.

Thanks!
Karen

It does not appear to be asbestos siding. Is any it marked?

Question

Thanks for the reply Chris! The blue stuff has been confirmed to contain asbestos, but the white tiles mixed in around the door frame is the replacement material, which I think is some older type of cement fiber. That's the stuff I'm looking for. It was in tiles of 9" x 36" with a vertical "grain". Any ideas?

Thanks!
Karen

PS: No, there is no discernable markings on it.

The blue stuff has been confirmed to contain asbestos,
Just out of curiosity, what was the cost of the laboratory test to confirm the asbestos?
