Shingle Match

I need to match an ELK Sandalwood 50 yr. architectural shingle with a GAF. Is there a cross-reference chart available online?

Thanks in advance for your help.

Good Luck! Its hard to get the same mfgr and color to match, let alone a different MFGR! Color varies from lot to lot.

+1 to jagans feedback. They do that for a reason.

Tough to tell via computer screen.

Best bet is to look at the sample boards or call your local supply house and have them match it.

Better yet if you feel like spending $90 to find out for sure contact I use this service when working insurance claims.

I have no time to play the "Match Game" for materials,colors,patterns etc.I use them to match,roofing,siding,flooring and to determine material availability.
