"Very Dissatisfied Customer"
I had my roof changed in Nov 2002 with the 30 yr Tamko architectural shingles. Now the majority of my roof has no more granules because they have been falling off. Tamko now supposedly has a 15 yr no proration warranty but back in 2002 it was only 5 yrs. So now after only half of the life of my roof, the best I can hope to get from Tamko is about $1,500 or 50% of the cost of new Tamko shingles. No thank you tamko! I am not about to spend another penny on your company and I strongly recommend that no one else does either. What a terrible company and very inferior product.

I had multiple people come pitch me their shingles and this guy from Bufalo Contracting comes out and gets me a Tamko woodgate on a rental property which is multi family. He told me to do my own research but the tamko woodgate is the only shingle that doesn't prorate on mutli family. I did and every other shingle prorates on multi family, it's been 5 years and I have had no problems. I don't know why these other shingle manufacturers offer a limited lifetime warranty on a single home but won't on a dual family...whatever

I had a customer that insisted on us giving her the lowest price. We went with Tamko because it was the cheapest shingle in our market. We've been to the house 4 times to make repairs due to the low quality of the shingle. I'm embarrassed that my company did a tamko installation. I thank God we're not tamko Pros.

"Classic Heritage/Rustic Cedar"
I would think this type of shingle would be alot thicker Stains easy, bird crap sticks and stays even after a several hard rains. The contractor was lousy and used the roof center here in Fredericksburg Virginia. They brought out the wrong color drip edge. The roof was already stripped, so the contractor went to the local hardware store and bought some crappy drip edge. Later the contractor came back and replaced the drip edge, what a crappy job!

This has to be the one the worst companys I've ever dealt with. Got my roof replaced with Tamco shingles they were all messed up I had to make a warranty claim. I Called the warranty department I talked to Diane and Barbara and they were the worst so rude disrespectful arrogant cynical and stupid. They're not the only ones I dont remember the other two ladies names but they were just as bad. They made it so hard. Then they were trying to go around my back and call other people trying to discredit me. It was just a horrible experience. Do not use these guys. I wouldn't haven used them but my hoa mandated that I used them. They must have stock or something.

"Another Unsatisfied Customer"
Amazing how so many people are unsatisfied with this company. I too am a victim of their crappy supposedly 30 year warranty. I built my home in 2004 and in 2011 we find out that our roof is defective, tamko refuses to help with anything.. I call and their supposedly low company rep says she is that manager and refuses to listen to what I have to say. I could go on and on, but I really hope this company can sleep at night knowing that they are placing shit work on expensive homes.

Tamko shingle come with a 15 year Full Start Period and not a 7 as this column states! They also offer 5 years on their 1 time transfer-ability and not 2! TAMKO offers the best color line in the industry hands down and have the best up front warranty protection of any other manufacture out there!

"Do not buy Tamko shingles"
Built new home in 2009 and have had nothing but issues from the start. Shingles not sealing, blowing off in 40 mph wind, leaking and algae everywhere on north side of home. Have sent samples in twice to customer service and basically was told they weren't properly installed and the national weather service showed 70 mph winds in our area according to Tamko. This is a very poor quality company along with their shingles and customer service! Would absolutely never recommend Tamko to anyone. On another note I built a large detached garage in 2010 and used Owens Corning shingles and have not had the first issue yet. No comparison on quality!

"Only 13 Years"
Had to replace when I sold my house. Shingles were slick, rock came off. This was a brand new roof only made it 13 years.

"Avoid Tamko shingles at all cost"
We bought a house in 2012 that had a roof that had been installed in 2005. So we thought geesh the roof would be good for at least a while. Now we have to sell the house and the inspector for the buyer noticed that about 50 of the shingles have lost most of their granulation down to the fiberglass. We are getting stuck having to pay for half the cost of installing a new roof! All because of this sorry company. Never ever put a roof on your house with shingles made by this company. Think the warranty is any good? Fat chance. We are not getting anything. And the "contractor" that posted on here that it has to do with installation? I don't think so! How does installation have anything to do with how a shingle wears. The shingles that are most in direct sunlight (the south and west side) are wearing the worst.
