To receive the Tamko Pro Contractor certification we had to complete an application process that checked our history and quality of work as well as verifying our insurance and financial standing. After all these were found to be in good order, a written test about Tamko's history, products, and proper installation methods was taken and passed. Only a very select few contractors in the Tidewater area have achieved the status of becoming a Tamko Pro Certified Contractor.
From the Tamko website:
"Tamko Pros must meet Tamko's stringent requirements, which include a code of ethics pledge and a test that demonstrates knowledge of best roofing practices. When you choose a Tamko Pro, you can rest assured that you're receiving the services of a well-established company with an outstanding record in your community."
"TAMKO® Building Products, Inc. is one of the nation’s largest independent manufacturers of residential and commercial roofing products, decking and railing products, waterproofing, cements, and coatings."
Tamko is a privately held company based in Joplin, Missouri, and has been manufacturing shingles since the 1940s. Being privately held means that they don't feel pressure to put the interests of shareholders above the interests of their customers, a dilemma that many publically held companies must deal with. Their manufacturing facility in Frederick, Maryland produces the shingles used in this area.
Tamko has achieved what is sometimes called vertical integration, meaning that Tamko has bought the companies that produce the raw materials that Tamko uses to manufacture their products. This gives Tamko more consistent control over quality, so they don't have to deal with the often varying quality of raw materials being sold in the open market.
Being named a Tamko Pro is an honor for RTB Construction, it lets you knows that our company has been thoroughly checked out, and can save you time when you are selecting a roofing contractor.
