Hi. We put these IKO shingles on for a good customer in '95. We just tore off 6 square of it in preparing for a solar PV install. Now I find we can't get any more - discontinued. It's one whole plane of a roof so it doesn't have to match perfect but that would be best of course.
Anyone know of any old stock somewhere? Or a good substitute? The red color in these shingles seems to be rare. They're 30 year architecturals. I did find 2 square about 50 miles from here, western Mass. Thanks
Jim

Last try - anyone have a suggestion for an arch. shingle with red over gray to substitute for the discontinued Chapel Slate? I just can't seem to find 6 square. Thanks, Jim

They haven't responded to emails, maybe I'll try to phone. I've been trying dealers, but you're right, it's time to dig deeper. Thanks

yup

IKO came through with some NOS from a warehouse in Canada. Not identical but close enough. Thanks Gene!
