Standing up to 160 MPH Winds

TAMKO Storm Fighter IR
March 27, 2023 at 6:00 a.m.

Find out how you can offer customers TAMKO’s WindGUARD™ Warranty through extreme shingle technology. 

An asphalt shingle that offers a wind warranty with coverage up to 160 miles per hour is now a reality with TAMKO’s Proline™ series of shingles. The shingle line includes the popular Titan XT® and impact-rated StormFighter IR® shingles, both of which feature a system of advanced technology including the AnchorLock™ layer and Advanced Fusion™ sealants that inspired the industry-first WindGUARD™ Warranty.  When installed per guidelines, which includes following the application instructions and using a TAMKO® Starter shingle, you can now offer your customers some of the most powerful wind coverage available on the market.  

Only four nails 

That wasn’t a misprint. Titan XT and StormFighter IR shingles use AnchorLock™ layer technology and Advanced Fusion™ sealants to deliver enhanced wind performance with just four nails. This technology features a proprietary poly-fabric layer of protection that provides an anchor for the nails and locks them to the roof deck.  

Not only do the Proline shingles only require four nails for the high wind warranty (compared with the standard industry requirement of six nails), but those four nails can be installed in the expanded Rapid Fire Zone® nailing zone, a major benefit for contractors who can install faster and without sacrificing quality. As a contractor, offering this industry-first high wind warranty makes choosing your contracting services and TAMKO products an easy decision for homeowners seeking the highest protection.  

Start the job right to get one of the best wind warranties available 

Starting your roofing job right is an important part in helping ensure the best possible shingle performance in high winds. Roof system failures are possible due to inadequate protection at the eave. Making your own starter strip from other roofing products in the field can lead to wind uplift and potentially roof system failure, not to mention the unsightly or uneven edges it could also cause. That’s why it’s important for every roof to include quality products on the starter row with starter strip shingles that are specifically designed to protect this part of the roof. 

Because the starter strip plays such an important role in roof performance and wind uplift protection, the WindGUARD™ warranty requires Titan XT® and StormFighter IR® shingles to be installed with TAMKO® Starter shingles. 

Why TAMKO® Shingle Starter 

TAMKO Starter shingles not only save contractors time from field fabricating a starter, but they also provide enhanced performance and wind uplift protection. The starter strip features a sealant strip that ensures the first course is properly sealed and eliminates the need for plastic cement on the roof.  

Stand out from the competition 

Many homeowners in need of a new roofing system are shopping around. It’s important to be able to set not only your company apart from your competition but your roofing system as well. When you choose to offer the Proline shingles with the WindGUARD™ 160 mile-per-hour warranty, your competitors don’t stand a chance.
