BALTIMORE – TAMKO Building Products, Inc. is now offering the MetalWorks StoneCrest® Slate profile in three additional color options and the Astonwood® shingle profile in a heavier 28 gauge steel. The products were on display at MetalCon 2016 in Baltimore. 
StoneCrest Slate is now offered in eight color options, which are exclusive to TAMKO. The three new additions, Forest Green, Timber Brown and Canyon Copper Bronze, were already being offered in the Astonwood profile.
According to TAMKO’s Vice President of Sales and Marketing Stephen McNally, “These colors were a natural addition to the StoneCrest Slate profile and they provide our customers with a better range of choices when selecting the best fit for their residential or commercial project.”
TAMKO formerly offered the Astonwood profile in a lighter 30 gauge steel while the StoneCrest Slate and StoneCrest Tile profiles were already offered in the heavier 28 gauge steel.
“This is a win-win. We have had lots of contractor requests for Astonwood to be in the same heavier gauge as the StoneCrest products,” said Chris Hammack, corporate account manager for TAMKO.  
McNally said, “The conversion of the Astonwood line to the heavier 28 gauge provides uniformity for the MetalWorks brand.” He added, “One of the greatest benefits is the advantage for contractors - they will no longer need to switch tools between the MetalWorks profiles during installation.”
