I am thinking maybe Tamko Mountain Slate. The homeowner was told it was an upgrade from a 30 year but I am thinking maybe the original contractor just said that to get some extra money for the odd color.

#12

look at the saw teeth cut outs…look how far off the alingment is at the bottom edge of it.


#13

Tamko, IKo, Or possibly Atlas. Take one off it should say.


#14

Not IKO. IKO has straight laminate. Those are slightly angles.


#15

update its Tamko. They are getting a new roof so I pulled a shingle back. Have not had a chance to compare the color with mountain slate yet but I think thats it. The homeowner loves it and wont sign a contract until we can prove to them that we will put the same thing back up. I too think its a bit ugly.


#16

Looks like mountain slate, from the pics it’s hard to tell. The mountain slate has more green in it, rustic slate has more brown in it.


#17

iko is straight teeth on east coast …not west

That 2nd set of photos you posted - for a moment there, I thought it was taken from the top of a ladder & looking up a 3:12 slope; the bottom pic made the top look like a mansard wall to roof joint.

Next time, put a small gap in there (i.e. hit enter) between your photo tags.
