Can anyone identify this? We're doing some minor repairs on a clients roof as part of a major remodel. Only need a 1/3 square of roofing to complete the job but it's being a real thorn in my side! :blink:

The color in the photo is dang near close to real life. Light blue with a hint of yellow speckles (up close) on the light parts of the shingles, and a medium gray with the same blue speckled in on the darker side. Local roofing suppliers haven't shown me anything like this. Roof is at least 5-6 years old and some fading has occurred.

ANY help or suggestions would be greatly appreciated!! :thumbup:

Thanks!

That looks like a 3 tab which is patterned to look architectural. Am I right?

If so I haven't seen one of those in years, since so many have been replaced. They were major failures. Around here Globe made 'em.


My advice is show the customer the available colors and have him make a decision. NEVER make a color decision for a customer veen if you think the color is a perfect match. I've got in alot of trouble doing that.

Thanks Grumpy!

You're absolutely right. It's 3 tab made to look like architectural. Thanks for the suggestion about the colors. we'll probably have to go that route and have the client pick. Still hoping I can track down something close!
