TAMKO Introduces New Heritage® Designer Ridge

TAMKO® Building Products, Inc. proudly introduces its new Heritage® Designer Ridge asphalt shingle. Constructed with SBS modified bitumen technology, the high profile ridge product adds a look of polished sophistication to finish asphalt roofing projects with style.

Two layers of asphalt shingles are laminated together to produce the high-definition appearance of added dimension in TAMKO’s Heritage® Designer Ridge, which is up to a half inch thicker than TAMKO’s standard Heritage® Hip & Ridge product.

Vice President of Sales and Marketing for TAMKO, Stephen McNally, said, “The bold look of Heritage Designer Ridge creates a dynamic design for our customers looking to differentiate their roof project from the rest.”

Available in complementary colors to go with TAMKO’s Heritage® and Heritage® Premium laminated asphalt shingle line, TAMKO’s Heritage® Designer Ridge makes for the perfect finishing touch. The distinct look of this product is offered in 10 inch and 8 inch overlap.

TAMKO’s Heritage® Designer Ridge is available for purchase regionally. This includes locations in the western, southwest and central United States. For more details, go to or visit TAMKO’s R|D|J Live booth #1511 October 26-27 in Nashville, Tennessee.
