My four year old roof has lost sand terrible. Many, many bare spots all over the roof. I contacted Tamko but they don't warrant any defects that don't result in a leak. These shingles are obviously defective, their manufacturing had problems when these were produced. Their warranty is a license to manufacture crap and get away with it. Buy at your own risk.

Other people's horrible reviews are the truth. I had a roof installed with a 40 year warranty in 2001. It failed. They said it was because of wind damage of which there is only a 5 year limited warranty. So they used that to get out of honoring the warranty. I bought 40 year roofing so I wouldn't have to deal with another one. After denying my claim, they said they "will not respond in any manner." Great customer service - not. Do not buy their products!

"Terrible Shingles - Worse customer service"
The shingles failed. It was determined that the product was bad. The company warranty staff refused to assist. We had the retailer working with us to negotiate with Tamko, but Tamko refused to help. Their response was "Call our lawyer." Avoid this company.

I'm a contractor in New England and I have I installed shingles for over 20 years. Tamko uses the best granules in the country and they were one of the first to zinc and copper to prevent algae. They're one of the heavier shingles on the market which means they use the most asphalt which is what actually protects your roof. No nonsense warranty and a great price.

"Ganges falling off"
I put a claim in for warranty on my roof right before 5 years of installation. The entire roof has straight lines of no granules.i sent pictures and had two shingles removed and sent to Tamko Warranty Department.I Received a letter indicating foot track and snow can cause that. They also indicated hail has been reported by the weather channel in my area. I have had no hail storms in my area. If hail had caused the damage the granules missing would be in circular shapes. I have entire sections with zero granules. I would not recommend this brand at the time of purchase my neighbors had their roofs replaced at the same time they choose another manufacturer and have no issues with there roofs or hail damage. Claim denied. Oh they did give me 100 dollars for the two shingles removed by roofer.7000 Dollar roof.

I bought a house 7 years after Tamko shingles had been installed and have experienced significant cracking in the asphalt shingles. I learned that the warranty can only be transferred one time within 2 years of installation. They obviously know that most homes will be sold during their "lifetime" warranty providing them a very convenient way not to have to stand behind their product. I'll do all I can to stay away from these shingles.

I turned in a claim with Tamco because my shingles were defective. I went through the claim process and in 6 weeks time I received a certificate for all the shingles at no cost to me and a certificate for all the labor to remove and replace. I am one truly thankful customer and give them a 5 star rating. Thanks again Tamco.

"Separating, not laying flat, loose granules"
I am installing heritage shingles on my own roof. After completing one side of my house the shingles are not laying flat and where I lay the shingle over the roof ridge the shingles are separating. When cleaning off the roof there was a large amount of loose granules on my roof. I used roof jacks and did not walk on the roof any more than necessary. Big red flag. I am contacting the home store where I purchased the shingles and see if I can return the unused shingles for a refund. I am very upset because I am running out of good weather for shingling plus I am out of the time and money for the shingles I have already installed.

Model: Heritage Laminated Asphalt
Tamko Heritage Laminated Asphalt Shingles- Shadowtone Series are junk! They are deteriorating, granules washing off on to ground, blistering, coming apart and sliding off roof! Tamko will do nothing but make excuses! Class action lawsuit is needed to make them take care of business! They make false claims! These shingles are 15 years and are guaranteed for 30 years! False advertising! Beware! Junk!

"Good honest American company!"
Fantastic company and products. I love my Tamko Metalworks roof - it has a clean high end look to it, not to mention comes with a 50-year warranty. I love it, and I hope others in my neighborhood do the same when it comes time to replace their old asphalt roofs.
