Hi! I am desperately looking for asphalt scalloped roof shingles for my new garage to match the ones on my house and I can't seem to find them any more! I was hoping you might know where I can find them in the Massachusetts area? Any consideration given to this request would be greatly appreciated! Thank You Sherry

They could be an Owens Corning Berkshire Collection, or the Old CertainTeed Carriage House collection. (in wich case, cuz of re-cycleing, you`re at the mercy of someone with a surplus)

Alot of Roofing companies make changes to sell new.( or prevent patching )

That Shangle, probably has a clear strip of plastic on the backside for inspectors/Reps. to identify the shingle information. You can`t see the print unless you put it under a special light. (maybe)

I live in the Boston area and know that some roofing companies have location around the country choices of product. Have you searched that option ?

Check out www.certainteed.com.

You can enter your zip code to determine if Carriage House is available in your area (and also find a contractor, if needed). Good luck!

Me too, have been unable to find. There's some company from china called alibaba.com that shows them but didn't really spend much time investigating the website. GAF has a country mansions ll that has some scallop but they are discounting (I just checked with the lumber yard yesterday.) the country mansions and the certainteed carriage house are what they call luxury shingles and are close to $200 a square. I am looking for red.

All of these leads did not work. Alibaba is a direct import and there are massive fees for entry taxes. three Times the cost of product.
I’m looking too for fish scale asphalt roofing tiles. if anone is still replying please let me know if you find some.... lumarose@yahoo.com

It's Atlas Alpine, long discontinued. There are no shingles in the US currently in production that will match it.
The good news for you is that since it is discontinued, if you have any weather related damage to your roof, The roof could be deemed non-repairable by the insurance adjuster, since the shingles are unavailable, and you could end up getting a similar, more recent product on your house. Then you could natch your garage.
If that is a route you would like to take,
Contact your local, trustworthy, licensed roofer for an inspection of your roof.
