Architectural shingles are taking the country by storm. As a more durable and stylish upgrade from traditional 3-tab shingles, architectural shingles are known for their eye-catching dimensional color options. So much so that you may hear these shingles be referred to as “dimensional” shingles.
An architectural shingle line with many impressive colors is the TAMKO Heritage series. Let’s take a closer look at 22 TAMKO Heritage shingle colors from their two different color series:
- America’s Natural Color Series
- Classic Colors Series
What to Expect With TAMKO Heritage Shingles
With any architectural shingle, you can expect a higher level of protection against inclement weather, dimensional color combinations, and a slightly longer lifespan. These are premium shingle options that cost more than traditional 3-tab shingles but are still more affordable than many other roofing materials.
With the TAMKO Heritage line specifically, you can expect decent coverage against hail and wind, plus a class A fire rating.
Now, let’s explore their 22 color options! Keep in mind that color availability varies by location. You can find out what colors are available to you by reaching out to a local contractor or your local TAMKO distributor.

An ode to the rolling hills of the American midwest, Harvest Gold brings out the tans, light browns, and red hues of harvest time. This color scheme successfully mimics the look of natural cedar shakes roofs.

Antique Slate is an excellent substitute for the most expensive and long-lasting roofing materials: natural slate tiles. This dimensional color with rich blacks and pops of white makes for a premium classic look.

Another dimensional black roof option is Rustic Black. The rich black base with dark grey highlights offers a welcoming appearance with a touch of luxury.
