"Rigid Slimy Policy to Transfer Warranty"
I'm very frustrated with Tamko's policy on transferring their 30 year warranty. They market a 30 year transferable warranty. However, their policy for transferring the warranty is very rigid. I can only assume that this product will not hold up for 30 years. Otherwise, why would they not have a friendlier warranty policy? Their policy is the warranty must be transferred to a new owner within 30 days, and can only be transferred once. We called on day 30, didn't get an answer from the company (truthfully we probably called the wrong division in the company). On day 31 (which we originally thought was day 35) they would not honor the transfer. Yes, not calling sooner is my fault. If you've ever moved, you know how chaotic moving can be. No one knew or remembered to tell us about the 30 day warranty. The seller and the roofer who put the roof on both told us the warranty was good for 30 years, but neither remembered or knew about the 30 day transfer rule. Yes, they should have read everything. It's my strong personal belief that Tamko's business plan has created a limited warranty that ensures they will not have to stand by their product for 30 years in many situations because customers will forget the details of the warranty. The three people I talked to at the company all said that this is how limited warranties are with lots of companies. Again, yes, that is true. Slimy but true. There are also lots of fantastic companies that will bend over backwards to help you. There are lots of companies that will honor what they advertise and don't rely on the fine printed loopholes. Tamko is not one of those honorable companies. It is my belief that Tamko's business plan relies on loopholes at the customer's expense.

"Worst Shingle I have ever seen"
I have Tamco three tab shingles on my roof. As I write this, I have no less than twenty shingles missing. I don't mean that the entire shingle is missing, but one tab torn off in twenty different places. You may ask me, did you have high winds? My response would be that my house is the only one within my neighborhood with this problem. It is not an installation problem but rather a shingle manufacture problem.

"Unwarrantied Manufacturer Defect"
Tamko has a manufacturer defect on their Heritage shingle line. There is horizontal cracking across the shingles, and it is present on many roofs, including mine. Ask a local roofer if they've seen this on Tamko shingles. More than likely, many have seen it. There have even been class-action lawsuits regarding this. Not only does Tamko not want to fix their faulty shingles, they use a very restricted warranty in order to use as a means of denying claims. If you do get a claim, they do not replace defective shingles. They will 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 provide you a claim for 50% of the shingle cost for replacement. This will only cover around 25%-35% of the total bill for a replacement of a faulty roof. They are glad to sell a faulty shingle, and allow you to pay the labor twice (once to put up the faulty shingle, and again to fix it).

"Worst Shingle Company"
Bought 50yr shingles in 2007. 10 years later my roof is leaking, shingles are curling and falling apart. Tamco said they are not going to warranty the shingles because i am the 2nd owner of the home. Even though i really owned the home at the time of shingle installation, just hadn't had all the paperwork done yet.

"Tamko warranty is a joke"
Just dealt with the warranty department, my 30 year warranty shingles are falling apart after 14 years. All of the granules are coming off of the shingles all over the body of my roof. The warranty dept is not going to stand behind their product because I am the second owner. 30 years shingles that fall apart in 14. This company is a joke. Make sure you buy anything but Tamko if you plan on staying in your house for more than 10 years.

Model: Heritage XL 40 year
I purchased these shingles in 2007. Being a 40 year shingle I thought it would last longer than 8 years. After 8 years they started breaking down, curling and disintegrating. Now I am facing replacement of my entire roof and they will only cover $100.00 towards labor! Disappointed does not do justice to my experience! Do not buy!
