TAMKO Building Products is a leading manufacturer of residential roofing and waterproofing and cements and coatings solutions. We are celebrating 75 years in the industry. TAMKO’s success is a direct result of teamwork and enduring relationships with customers, suppliers and employees.

The company continues to be privately owned and lead by the third generation of the company’s founder, preserving the same values and principles of years past.

TAMKO began in 1944 in a streetcar barn in Joplin, Missouri. TAMKO’s philosophy is simple – work hard, do your best, be fair and honest, and believe in those around you. Company-founder E.L. Craig created the TAMKO line of roofing products on that foundation. Starting in the 1960s, under the leadership of Jay Humphreys and Ethelmae Craig Humphreys, TAMKO became a national leader in the industry, expanding into Kansas, Alabama, Tennessee, Maryland and Texas.

Under David Humphreys’ leadership TAMKO has expanded further with new plants and innovative building products including TAMKO’s MetalWorks® Steel Shingles in a variety of styles and colors, all featuring a unique four-way locking system for easy installation and UL classification for wind resistance.

The Heritage® laminated shingle line is the cornerstone in TAMKO’s residential roofing product line, offering dimension and curb appeal. The Heritage Series includes Heritage®, Heritage® Premium, Heritage® Vintage® and Heritage Woodgate® shingles.

TAMKO also provides quality cements and coatings for low slope and residential applications and a line of above and below-grade waterproofing products.

The FRSA Self Insurers Fund (FRSA-SIF) was created in 1955 to provide an alternative to the standard workers’ compensation insurance coverage for roofing, sheet metal, and air conditioning contractors.

The FRSA-SIF is a Group Self Insurance Trust Fund governed by a Board of contractor member Trustees who direct policy and understand the needs and concerns of your business and industry. The strength of the FRSA-SIF is in the quality and dedication of members stressing safety and reducing losses at their workplaces.

FRSA-SIF provides an unsurpassed workers’ compensation service that has saved members millions of dollars in workers’ compensation costs over the years – coverage that is not just a policy.

The FRSA-SIF is not your typical insurance company owned by outside stockholders. It’s a Group Self Insured Trust owned by members while they participate as a member of the Fund. All available surpluses deemed and declared excess by the Trustees may be returned to the membership in the form of declared dividends. Aggressive safety programs and careful management of claims, along with a safe and conservative management of investments, can lead to a surplus that provides for declared dividends. FRSA-SIFs dividend history is unsurpassed by any other workers’ compensation provider, having returned over $160 million in dividends to members over the past 30 years. FRSA-SIF proudly invites you to review their dividend history in the Annual Membership Report on their website. To learn more about the FRSA-SIF, call 800-767-3772 ext. 206 or visit their website at www.frsasif.com.

Nothing provides homeowners more peace of mind than a sound roof over their heads. For hundreds of years, tile roofs have been considered the time-tested, ultimate roofing system.

The main challenge with tile roofs is keeping the tile secure during wind events. Nothing illustrates this more clearly than the recent damage done by Irma on Marco Island. We were able to survey the damage, see photos at:
https://www.tcparkerassociates.com/hurricane-irma-roofing-impact.html 

This illustrates two roofs that were mechanically fastened, one was not even completed at the time of the storm. The damage is clear, as is the failure mode. Mechanically fasteners must be left a little “loose” or the tile will crack. When the wind blows across the tile, it can lift the end of the tile, causing “chattering” to occur. As the chattering continues, the tiles are literally ripped from the roof, as seen in the ridge tiles hanging on at a 45 degree angle in the presentation.

The mortar example is even worse, these are roofs are likely from well before the updated code requirements took effect.

Finally, we see nearby homes with adhered tile roofs that were subjected to the same wind event and show no damage. Adhesives like TILE BOND™ lock the tiles in place, eliminating the potential chattering- the typical failure mode of mechanical fasteners.

While the cost to use adhesive adds a small premium, isn’t the peace of mind worth it? 

  

 



There’s a new kid on the residential roofing block. IKO entered the Florida market eight years ago, but has quickly earned a well-deserved reputation for the high-quality architectural laminated asphalt shingles it manufactures.

According to Donna Dove, IKO Sales Representative for North Florida/South Georgia, residential roofing professionals respect and admire that the company is a family-owned and privately held business.

“The IKO Premium, Performance and Architectural Collections available in our market are engineered to meet or exceed our tough Miami Dade building codes,” she says. “They feature built-in blue-green algae-resistance, superior protection against wind-driven rain and high-wind blow-off”.

For homeowners, it’s the stunning color choices that elevate IKO above the rest. Thanks to IKO’s exclusive, advanced blending technology, the company offers homeowners a fine selection to suit any style of home. Deep cuts and dimensional profiles mimic the in-demand look of natural stone tiles or genuine wood shakes, without their expense and maintenance worries.

One of the shingles in the company’s Performance Collection is Dynasty® with ArmourZone®. In addition to more traditional colors, it includes several truly unique and eye-catching color blends.

For residential contractors, Dynasty offers a “true square advantage”. Three bundles cover exactly 100 square feet. Many competitors’ comparable shingles fall short, requiring the purchase of additional bundles to make up the difference. Over the course of a building season, the savings on time, labor and wasted material can really add up.

For more information, visit www.iko.com or ask an IKO sales rep to see actual samples.

 

 

 

 

 

With its origins as a roofing contracting business, Polyglass® became a leading manufacturer of modified bitumen roofing membranes in Europe in the 1960s and introduced its products and technology to the United States in 1992. Since then, Polyglass has grown to be an innovator in the roofing industry. Decades of practical experience in the application of roofing and waterproofing materials provide the strong foundation for understanding the importance of contractor satisfaction.

Launching innovative technologies such as Polyglass’ patented ADESO® Self-Adhered Technology in the 1990s positioned Polyglass as a leader in manufacturing modified bitumen membranes. As the company continued its growth, it was acquired in 2008 by Mapei®, a global manufacturer of adhesives, sealants and chemical products for the building industry. After the acquisition, Polyglass U.S.A.’s headquarters moved to Deerfield Beach, Fla. and currently has five ISO 9001:2015 certified manufacturing facilities servicing the Americas.
