Roofing/needing some matching shingles


Poor shingle installation, about 6 yrs. ago, allows some shingles to drop to the ground.  I need MATCHING "Tamko-Joplin-163" shingles to match remaining roof shingles.  Do not have any other identifying numbers.  Please advise.

Take one of the shingles that has fallen to the ground to your nearest roofing distributor and they will match it for you.

Joplin denotes the plant in Joplin, MO that manufactured the shingles.
163 means nothing to me and could be a shift indicator or some other batch code but has nothing to do with color.

or look here at the link below which is a color chart for the Joplin shingle plant and you can match the shingles yourself.

Google is your best friend.

I can answer questions about residential and light commercial roofing. I really enjoy solving complicated problems. My expertise is in shingle, slate and traditional metals (copper, lead, terne, stainless) as well as single ply low slope roofing. I have also installed a considerable amount of synthetic slate.


I have been a roofer for 21 years, I've owned my own company for the past 13.
