OSCAR would like to showcase your photos!

In preparation for the release of the updated version of OSCAR,  we are looking for clear, illustrative photos for many of the topics on the site.

Today, we are looking for photos of ASPHALT SHINGLE ROOFS.

Broken Shingles

Specifically,  we are seeking shots that are head-on, “texture” shots such as these, these, or this one of a terra cotta tile roof:IMG_0726-cropped

Note: terra cotta photo by SHKS Architects.

Other, related photos we are also seeking include:

  • missing asphalt shingles
  • damaged asphalt shingles (of any type of damage)
  • repaired asphalt shingle roofs

Please email your photo to: apt.tcsp@gmail.com. Please also include who is to be credited for the photo (that is, you or your office), and the photo location (city, state/province, country). If selected, your photo will appear in the new version of OSCAR.

Thank you!
