A Little History From Tamko
Tamko is an American-built company with over 75 incredible years in the roofing industry. Starting out of an old barn in Missouri in 1944, the owners wanted to make building materials more accessible to their closest neighbors and the many states around them. Over the past few decades, not only has this company become a brand name known all across the country, but they have also become a quality and trusted manufacturer for more than just the shingles on your roof. Since this company’s conception, they have been accomplishing that goal and continuously bringing new innovations to the roofing industry while still keeping their clients, both residential and commercial, the top priority. When Tamko first stepped into the roofing industry, they were known as Tamko Roofing Products and in fact, are named from the initials of the 5 states that they serviced from the beginning (Texas, Arkansas, Missouri, Kansas, & Oklahoma). As the years progressed, however, they began introducing more than just asphalt shingles to their customers.
Why Gold Standard Can Rely On Tamko Every Time
Since introducing their first shingle in 1945, they have been bringing innovation to the creation of homes of all sorts and improving the market while they do it. While the company changed its name to Tamko Roofing Products in 1994, it continued to see a major rise in all sorts of building materials that were in need, not just shingles and tiles. So, with the desire to promote more than just asphalt roofing materials, in 2006, the owners officially changed the name of their company to Tamko Building Products and are now well known around the country for many kinds of exterior building necessities. In an effort to drive down the price and increase the quality of what they are installing and distributing, Tamko owns and operates many of its raw material plants. Because of this, they control what types of products they produce and the quality they bring to the homeowners and companies they deliver them to. Tamko began incorporating products like cement, waterproof coatings, and even began making metal shingles available to their customers by manufacturing them into their factories.
By owning many of their manufacturing plants, this, in turn, helps strengthen the backbone of our country’s economy by providing many jobs.
A Few Innovations Tamko Has Brought To The Table
In 1977, the company introduced an SBS-modified bitumen for use in low slope roofing systems and since then, has become a leading provider in both the residential and the commercial sides of building material for manufacturing companies. In 1994, as mentioned earlier, they expanded into cement and coatings allowing them to give a solid assurance to their clients that whatever style of roof was needed for your home or business would stand up to time along with the elements. Then, in 2004, Tamko introduced metal roofing products available for homes and buildings that took quite a toll from the elements and even added roofing components like ventilation and synthetic underlayments which were majorly brought into use in 2013.
