    Default 1920s tin scalloped roofing shingles

    Just bought a house on the east coast that has tin shingles. They essentially look like the clay kind you'd see on California roofs. In good condition and we are about to paint them but a few are dented down near some edges from ( I'm guessing) bad ladder placement. Any thoughts on where I can find replacement shingles?

    Since we can't see your shingles, click here.

    We are painting the roof because as near as we know it's been 15 years since it was painted and is starting to show rust

    We were told that it's tin. No reason to believe otherwise but have no guarantee

    We found a good house painter who has done some architectural roofs so we are feeling pretty good about him.
