"30 Year Shingles that Last 9 - Terrible Shingles"
We bought a home in 2012, with Tamko shingles with 3 years on a 30 year Tamko Joplin Architectural shingle on the roof. We immediately started having problems with them coming off after wind storms. Every neighbor got new roofs the same year, however no one else has had them come off. After 9 years they are brittle, fading, and have had to hire repairs many times in 6 years. I talked extensively with Tamko and to management with no help at at. I will be replacing this roof soon, but I had hoped they would compromise and either replace with new shingles even if I had to provide labor or they find some solution. NOTE: I am by Tulsa, and every roofing company I have called says Tamko are the cheapest quality of any shingles and no one will install them for the wind problems I have experienced. buyers be ware!

"Worse decision ever."
Almost 40 years in this house with no damage to the ceiling until we got this product. $350 spent a little over a year ago to fix loose tiles and today I get up there to find many more coming loose. 4 new spots on the ceiling has the wife very mad and the fact that the so called best roofing company in town has known about this product and the law suites but has never mentioned it makes me mad as hell.

"The worst experience ever!"
Something is seriously wrong with how Tamko manufactures it's shingles. Seriously people, if your roofer shows up and recommends Tanko products find another company. They are trying to make money at your expense and no warranty is going to help you if something goes wrong. I mean seriously folks when I say avoid all things Tamko. If you don't believe me do some online reading for your own benefit.

"Best shingle on the market"
I have used primarily Tamco roofing products for 20+ years and Iíve had very good success with the shingles, and they are a selling point to my customers as the best shingle on the market. If there is any problem at all a sales rep will respond and corrective action will be taken.

"We always steer our customers to Tamkos"
Tamkos are the shingle we always steer our customers to, we sell other brands too but stock Tamko. When asked by home owners if Tamko stacks up to brand X, we tell them if they want to, drive over to the next town over and check out a large commercial building that we supplied the shingles for quite awhile ago. It took over 200 squares, is 40 feet in the air with steep and multiple pitches, very exposed but those shingles have held up to high winds and all kinds of weather and still are doing great, that usually seals the deal. We don't like call backs and Tamkos are a product we donít have to worry about.

"Bad Bad Shingle"
Added on to house in 2009. Reroofed back section(new), as front was in good shape. The Tamko on the back has cracked but front part of roof is good and twice the age. How can Tamko say they didn't have an issue especially with a great comparison? Mind blown!

"Oklahoma Buyers Beware!"
Tamko has a manufacturer defect on their Heritage shingle. When the wind blows, they blow off, they are cracking and the fiberglass granules detach and your roof becomes unprotected and shiny! They have clogged my French drains! I have had to have my guttering cleaned just to have the granules removed. When you pull up my driveway, looking at my roof, it looks as if the glitter fairies have visited. Ask a local roofer if they've seen this on Tamko shingles. Better yet, ask your insurance agent. What a headache!!! There have been several states that have filed class-action lawsuits regarding this. Not only does Tamko not want to fix their faulty shingles, they use a very restricted warranty. If you do get a claim, they do not replace defective shingles. They prorate your roof and only give you a portion of money for only the shingle (not the labor) for a replacement. So if you are halfway through your warranty term, Tamko will only pay you a for 50% of the shingle cost for replacement. I have told everyone I know and will continue to try and save others from going through what I'm going through. By the way, Tamko's 50 yr warranty shingles are made the exact same way as the 30 yr warranty shingle. There is no difference other than the name and the $$$. This company is so shady. I have been dealing with this mess for years. I'm gritting my teeth praying help comes soon before more damage is done to my beautiful home. Our only hope for justice is a class action lawsuit here in Oklahoma!
