Hello,

If you are in the Pacific NW you can try Malarkey Redwood. I think they still make that color.

Re: Red Shingles


thanks for the responses. My region is iowa.The certanteed look good but I can't talk any customers into it because all the roofs we have been replacing are certanteed 6-15 years old. I told the customer there suppose to be a top of the line shingle now and he said ya they were suppose to be last time to, I can't argue with him on that. I will look into the iko and oc. thanks

Ya, show me a 3-tab in that range that did last longer than 15 years. You'd be doing him a favor informing him that a Landmark is a much better shingle than the OC or IKO.
