We moved into a home with a five year old Heritage Tamko roof 18 months ago. Now the shingles have a manufacturer's defect, but the warranty will do us no good because it could only have been transferred during the first two years! The company does not care that this is a manufacturer's defect on their shingles with the extended warranty since this time frame was not met. Buyers need to be aware of this potential issue.

"Tamko Heritage 30-Year Impact-Resistant (IR)"
Roof was installed Sep 2013. So far so good. Has anyone had experience with the hail-resistant roofing we bought (IR)? We paid extra to avoid another roof replacement at the next hail storm. Insurance agent recommended this type roofing. But am discouraged by all the negative ratings which I had not read prior to purchase.

"Fraud, misleading the consumer"
Do not under any circumstances use heritage shingles from Tamko. They have class action lawsuits in every state and have since they produce the product in 2001. They left out a component (the most expensive) so they can make more money. They continue to make the same product and sell them, misleading the consumer and that now falls into the fraud category. I am going to contact the fbi and file charges against this company/corporate office in Joplin Missouri. Get ready Tamko your about to get what's coming to you.

"Irresponsible roofing supplier or cheat"
The Heritage AR series 30 year shingles are granulating and beginning to curl after after 4-6 months. They are very poor in composition and will not last half their advertised life. The claim to be designed to resist mildew hinges on fraud. When the company is contacted they make it so difficult to get them to assist that it is best to use a class action suit. Do you know anyone that will come to your home and remove and reinstall shingles for $100.00. Nope! Me neither. Garbage Product

"Replaced under warranty"
Had Tamko Heritage architectural shingles (Rustic black) installed on our house in 2013. By mid 2014, we began seeing some discoloration on what seemed to be 90% of the shingles, on all surfaces / exposures of our roof. I contacted Tamko, followed all their instructions on how to submit a warranty claim, found their rep Cheryl to be extremely accommodating when I called, and they did honor the warranty and my roof was just replaced. Per the warranty, which I knew in advance, Tamko covered the cost of the replacement shingles and the labor to install. I had to eat the cost of the tear off and removal of the defective shingles. Overall - while we were certainly disappointed that the product failed in the first place, we found dealing with Tamko for resolution under warranty to be a positive experience, and we are very happy with the replaced shingles.

"Tamco heritage shingles don't live up to 25 year warranty"
My roof is 10 years old. When high winds come I lose a huge chunk of the shingles off my roof every time. Roof already looks old and the shingles never adhered to each other. Like they should have. Getting a new roof in the spring. So much for the 25 year warranty! No more Tamko for me!

"Short life of shingle"
I am in Jacksonville, FL and put a Tamko 35 year rated architectural shingle on my home. By year 13, there was so much shingle granular material on the ground and so much fiberglass showing on the shingle that the roof should have been replaced. The shingles did seal well to each other and the 30 lb felt used at that time has kept me for the most part water resistant. I am sensitive to proper roof venting problems in FL so I added 2 additional vents when these shingles were installed.

"Tamko 7 year at best"
These shingles are the worst I have ever seen and I was married to a roofing contractor. I bought a brand new house in Nov 2006 and in July I about lost my whole roof, water pouring in every room due to shingles flying off like frisbees. They are half the thickness of most and don't have enough tar to make them stick together. What a nightmare with buckets all over my 4 bedroom house, water pouring in like the falls in every room, in the middle of the night, while listening to shingles flapping all over the roof. Every room had to be treated for stains and painted. Don't buy Tamko!

"These shingled are terrible and do not seal"
These, by far, are the worst shingles I have ever had installed. I had a professional installer put these on a few years ago (they are 30 year shingles)... It was a very warm day (90+) and the shingles did not seal on over half my roof. I have literally had to re-install almost half my roof in the past 5 years. I am just biding my time until I can install metal. Note: never buy this product!

My 25 year warranty on these "upgraded" Tamko shingles is apparently worth nothing! The shingles are curling and look awful. There is also a great loss in granules with every rain. Our roofer that our whole family has used for 2 decades (with no problem ever) says the shingles are defective. Tamko says our very experienced roofer put the shingles on incorrectly and it's not their problem. Roofer says they are installed correctly. Tamko is also blaming winds for causing the damage despite the fact that all the roofs on other homes surrounding me are fine. So, I'm stuck with a crap roof and no help. Do not buy anything from Tamko!
