Hello,

My company is the world's leading testing service for the weatherability testing of materials. I also served for many years on the ASTM roofing standards committee. There are too many causes for variations in appearance for new asphalt shingle roofs to go into detail. However, many of these variations are short term and will, indeed, disappear after 3-6 months (depending on climate and other factors)and are not manufacturing defects. So your rep's advice to give it 6 months is a reasonable request. Replacing it now is still no guarantee  that you won't have the same or other short-term issues.
