TAMKO Launches New Limited Lifetime Warranty

New, enhanced Limited Lifetime Warranty applies to single-family installations of Heritage family asphalt shingles and includes a 10-year Full Start period that includes the cost of labor

TAMKO Building Products, Inc. is offering homeowners longer protection for one of their biggest home investments through a new enhanced Limited Lifetime Warranty.

TAMKO Lifetime Limited Warranty BugThe new Limited Lifetime Warranty applies to installations on owner-occupied, single-family structures of TAMKO’s most popular products – the Heritage family of laminated asphalt shingles, including TAMKO® Heritage®, Heritage® Premium, Heritage® Vintage®, Heritage Woodgate® and the new Heritage® IR shingle.

“We’ve heard from our customers that they already thought TAMKO had a great shingle warranty, but now we’re enhancing it to offer even longer coverage for homeowners,” said Stephen McNally, TAMKO’s vice president of sales and marketing.

The new Limited Lifetime Warranty includes a 10-year non-prorated Full Start period, during which replacement shingles and the labor for their installation are covered.  

After the Full Start period, the quantity of shingles is prorated each year until year 40, after which, the prorated remedy will be equal to 20 percent of the reasonable cost or quantity of replacement shingles for as long as the original homeowner (or qualified purchaser) owns the home.

TAMKO’s new Limited Lifetime Warranty applies to applicable shingle purchases for single-family structures made on or after February 1, 2019. TAMKO’s Limited Warranty term for Multi-Family installations of the Heritage® line of shingles is 40 years.

TAMKO’s Heritage® line of shingles continues to offer a 15-year Limited Wind Warranty of 110 mph for standard application and 130 mph for high wind application, as well as a 10-year Algae Cleaning Limited Warranty.
