Tamko Heritage 50 AR shingles
 
We are in desperate need of Rustic Black Tamko heritage 50 AR shingles. Problem is that we only need 2 sq of these for a project we are doing. We can buy a pallet (about 12 sq) of these, but that could be a real budget buster. I have looked on Ebay and Craigs list; no one has the 50's. Lots of 30's. I have been told that the 50's are a lot thicker than the 30's and not interchangeable without noticing.

Thought someone on here might have some other ideas of who/what to contact, or maybe another brand that could be interchangeable.

Thanks in advance for any help.

You didn't mention where you are located, but a few years ago we needed a few bundles of a certain shingle that had been discontinued and we found them at this company...

ETA: I thought they were a local company, but I see they're all over the country. Here's the link to their map...

Type in your zip code if you don't see your state listed as I don't see my state on the list, but there are 2 of them nearby.

I have ABC Supply on my list to call on Monday. Thanks for the reply and info. It makes me feel like I am getting close. There are 2 ABC Supplies in Little Rock.....about 100 miles from us. I will drive a long way if I have to in order to get these shingles.

Thank you so much!!!!!!!!!

Check with ABC, Bradco, and Roof Center. They might have some laying around.

50 year tamko aren't as common as the 30 year. Good luck.

ps a 30 year same color might be your only option.
