Question DetailsAsked on 3/26/2016

can a shingled roof be repaired with different sized shingles,

I have a 2.5 year old roof that was shingled with IKO shingles that are 41 inch long compared to the other manufacture shingles that are 39 3/8 inch plus the width is different . no one with in 400 miles sells IKO now. Is there a way I can use standard sized shingles to repair this roof with out replacing the whole side?

Sure - just won't look the same because of different cutout spacing.

If repair is not urgent, and your is still made, should be able to special-order as many bundles as you need from the manufacturer or its local warehousing agent and get in a week or two - though added shipping cost sometimes.

Also - check with manufacturer - they may have info on who in your general area sells their shingles, may be one closer than you think. Their "find dealer" page here -

When you said the width is different - if you mean the tab width, short of getting a shingle with the same width you are stuck on that unless you totally reroof that side, so it depends on how important consistent look is to you.

If you mean the top-to-bottom shingle height is different, shingles can be put down with different exposures on the tabs - so you would just need a shingle that can provide the exposure you need.
