TAMKO Roofing Complaints and Subsequent Lawsuit
TAMKO is undeniably an established company with more than seven decades in the industry made possible with their teamwork, strong relationships with customers, employees and suppliers and commitment to improvement but like any company TAMKO also faced a few bumps in their journey; the TAMKO roofing complaints and TAMKO shingles lawsuit to be specific. A considerable number of clients voiced out that the TAMKO Laminated Asphalt Shingles doesn’t offer the kind of quality promised by the manufacturer. Those that had the Heritage Series installed, the series where the TAMKO Laminated Asphalt Shingles belong to, raised some issues regarding certain defects. Some of the problems include, but are not entirely limited to, premature curling, cracking and delamination; signs that the quality and protection is not as good as promised.
What are TAMKO Laminated Asphalt Shingles?
Essentially, the TAMKO Heritage Series Laminated Asphalt Shingles contain weather-grade asphalt and come with a limited warranty on the roof covering that spans thirty years. This particular product was supposed to give roof protection for years to come, especially when taking into account features like double-layer fiberglass matting, weather resistant construction and self-sealing asphalt strips for added wind resistance.
TAMKO Shingles Lawsuit Filed Against the Company
As stated in the TAMKO Shingles Lawsuit, the shingles being complained have no lack of design flaws which caused the degranulation, cracking, blistering, curling, and deterioration of the products; ultimately resulting in damage to the property itself. Even though TAMKO established lengthy warranties for their shingles, some spanning up to fifty years, the TAMKO Shingles Lawsuit claimed that the manufacturers failed on their part to test just how long the product would last and apart from that labor costs under warranty claims were also not covered. TAMKO Shingles Lawsuit aims to compensate all the customers that experienced problems regarding the allegedly defective shingles and to immediately stop all advertising, distribution and marketing involving this specific product.
Is there a Recall of the Allegedly Defective Shingles?
In the latest updated, TAMKO Laminated Asphalt Shingles are not being recalled by the company. That being said, it doesn’t mean that clients can’t file for any kind of compensation because of the hassle that the shingles caused and the additional expense incurred on replacement and repair. Those who unfortunately purchased defective shingles may file for a TAMKO Shingles Lawsuit in order to recover all costs.
TAMKO Shingles Lawsuits, Why Were they Filed?
Under the TAMKO Shingles Lawsuit, TAMKO sold the defective products and thus are responsible for all compensation fit for the consumers who had installed the allegedly defective products on their property. Apart from that, the suit also claims that all sorts of manufacturing and design defects ultimately caused damaged to the roof of the owner and a huge part of the underlying structures; the accumulated cost for needed repairs and replacements are overwhelming.
