Anyone know what color and brand these shingles are?


I have a customer that suffered some storm damage in the middle of the roof. I have been through all of my sample boards and can't seem to come up with something close here. I checked GAF/Elk, CertainTeed, Tamko, and Owens Corning. The house is located in Eastern Pa and was built in 2003. Someone had suggested Celotex, but I don't have any knowledge of their shingles other than they went out of business. It almost looks like a weathered wood color with a hint of red and a red shadow line. Any hints or suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

Oh yeah it is a metric shingle. 5 5/8

Not Celotex, the double laminations/teeth what ever people call them now-a-days with celotex narrowed towards the bottom of the exposures...not quite to a point but narrowed.

Have you checked out IKO or Malarkey?

I can't find a supplier around me that carries IKO. I'll try to check them out online. I haven't heard of Malarkey, I'll try checking them out online as well.

Thanks

I just checked and couldnt find a marlarkey nor IKO that was close. With the red blend it looks like a tamko. There stands a chance its a color not made any more or discontinued. Especially being nearly 10 years old...also there stands a chance that it is a common color from a different plant or region that does not normally get sent to PA.

There is also a chance it is an ELK shingle from before GAF bought them out.

I think you're right Billy, it has to be a discontinued color or one not available locally anymore. I guess this one will have to be an "as close as possible" patch job.

Thanks for your input.

I always make it a point to check the back of the shingle for the clear plastic strip, most of the time will have the make right on it. Just an idea

Computer colors are going to vary, but my gut said OC Colonial Slate Oakridge at first glance. I know you already checked them, but I'm going with my instincts.

I'll go through them again, Just to be sure. I'm not an OC guy so maybe I buzzed through them to quick.

Thanks everybody for all the suggestions,

Re: Anyone know what color and brand these shingles are?


Definitely not Cert. due to no shadow line
Same with newer GAF
Not Tamko due to exposure size-tamko's finally changing to metric early 2013. Still all english exposure, only 5"
I'm thinking it might be an old timberline Heather, which if that's the case, you should be able to get them the whole roof paid by insurance due to no suitable match
