TAMKO Adds New Heritage® Shingle Colors in Southeastern U.S.

Four new shingle colors are now available for TAMKO Building Products, Inc.’s customers in the southeastern United States. The colors, which are Rustic Brown, Grey Mist, Driftwood and Painted Desert, have been added to TAMKO’s popular Heritage® laminated asphalt shingle line and are being produced out of TAMKO’s Tuscaloosa, Alabama manufacturing facility.

Rustic Brown, Grey Mist and Driftwood are all part of TAMKO’s Classic color collection, and Painted Desert is a part of TAMKO’s innovative America’s Natural Colors® collection. Rustic Brown features several shades of deep brown, with red highlights and black lowlights to create a warm and classic exterior. Grey Mist is an ethereal combination of light to mid grey tones. Driftwood features a variety of mid-tone browns to create the illusion of deep shadowing. And finally, Painted Desert has a mid-tone golden base, with bold highlights and lowlights in shades of blue, green, red, gold and brown.

 “TAMKO’s customers in the southeast U.S. can now enjoy an expanded range of our already extensive collection of beautiful shingle colors for the Heritage line,” said TAMKO’s Vice President of Sales and Marketing, Stephen McNally.

TAMKO’s Heritage® laminated asphalt shingle offerings are produced with unique color drops and shadowtone process that creates visual dimension that resembles the look of natural roofing options like slate and wood shake. And unlike some roofing manufacturers, TAMKO doesn’t increase its prices for premium, high-definition shingle colors.

All four of these new color options can be purchased now in the southeastern United States. For more information on product availability, go to TAMKO.com or visit TAMKO’s R|D|J Live booth #1511 October 26-27 in Nashville, Tennessee.
