Exterior replacement

I have a 1.5 car detached garage that has what I believe to be cement/abstetos shingles, they look hideous and paint won't cover the mess... What are my options? I reallly dont want to vinyl side, I just want to make it more attractive without spending alot of money. Are shingles cheaper than siding? Any suggestions are greatly appreciated!

Vinyl siding is one of the cheapest ways to go. Lowe's has some for about $50 sq., plus accessories like corner posts, j-channel. Sure, shingles are cheaper (maybe $30 per sq on sale for cheap 3 tabs), but I thought you said you wanted to make it MORE attractive. Shingles also will not seal properly on a vertical surface, and will probably not lay down very well.
