As the month of love comes to a close, we express our affection for the last (but certainly not least!) of our one of our four exceptional manufacturer partners in our “Batterbee Loves” blog series.

Throughout February, we’ve spread the love for three of our admired manufacturer partners – CertainTeed®, GAF® and Owens Corning™ – and now we’re taking time to showcase the one and only TAMKO® Building Products!

Why We Love TAMKO®

1. For their dynamic cuts.

One of the defining characteristics of TAMKO® shingles is its variety of different cut styles. For added dimension, customers can opt for one of three premium categories – Heritage® Series Shingles, MetalWorks® Steel Shingles, and Glass-Seal Shingles – each containing a number of special designs.

Heritage® Series Shingles are acclaimed for their unique, random-cut sawtooth structure and wood shakes-inspired colors, consisting of the Heritage® Vintage, Heritage® Woodgate®, Heritage® Premium, Heritage® IR and Heritage® options. MetalWorks® Steel Shingles are constructed for high performance, offering three distinguished styles, including slate, tile and wood, which all have 50-year limited warranties.

2. For their full palette of colors.

When it comes to colors, there’s no shortage of choices among any of the TAMKO® shingle types. Customers can select from gorgeous Classic Heritage Colors or America’s Natural Colors®, each offering TAMKO®’s own blended granule mix with distinct color drop. Customers can also opt for MetalWorks® steel shingles, which feature ENERGY STAR®-qualified cool colors, offering a stunning blend of tones with highly reflective surfaces.

Plus, the selection process can be made easy and stress-free with the StyleSelect™ Color & Style Selector. Customers can find the ideal shingle type and color for their homes by simply uploading a photo of the house’s exterior (or using one of the provided photos) to get a full view of what each product would look like in real life.


3. For their thoughtfully designed coverage options.

Though beauty is certainly a major deciding factor when selecting a shingle option, it shouldn’t be the only factor to consider. With TAMKO®, you never have to compromise quality for beauty. Each product is carefully crafted to ensure top performance and protection, and that’s backed by the extensive protection and coverage plan available for many of their products. The truth is: Heritage® Series shingles offer the longest upfront protection available with their 15- to 20-year Full Start period, so you can rest assured you’re covered for quite some time.

4. For their years of experience.

Founded in 1944, TAMKO® began its journey for success in an old streetcar barn. Though it started off small – offering just one line of shingles – it has always had big dreams, big innovation and big results.

Over seven decades, the TAMKO® team dedicated itself to continual improvement, initiating a business strategy and management philosophy that’s centered around producing consistently professional-grade products and increasing profitability. The company has continued to succeed with this goal over the years, introducing state-of-the-art materials that were produced in their own raw materials plants. Today, TAMKO® is one of the leading shingle manufacturers in the U.S., offering a variety of building products for both residential and commercial projects.


There are many reasons to love TAMKO® Building Products. From their many cut and color options, to their coverage styles and long-standing credibility, we love them all!
