T-Lock Shingles


I have heard there are only three manufacturers of T-Lock in the US and they have a patent on the product and they won't sell to distributors or individual companies but only they can install them.

I need to buy T-Lock for a very windy area job I have coming up.

Does anyone know where you can purchase the very at least at one time popular T-Lock shingles?

Thanx.

Re: T-Lock Shingles


The company you are referring to, I believe, is Sherrif Goslin, out of Indiana, Michigan and Ohio if I recall correctly.

But, they buy their products from the Atlas Roofing Manufacturer, so I would suggest that you start there.

Certainteed used tohave the T-Locks listed in their Master product brochure and Globe used to manufacture them, but they are out of business.

Good Luck. What area are you from?

Re: T-Lock Shingles


Hi,

Thanks for your quick response Ed. I am in Southwestern Ontario and the job is right by the water therefore the high wind situation.

I actually knew about Sheriff Goslin and Atlas but I'm not getting anywhere there.

With all the roofs in North America that have T-Lock you would think S G would want to sell to distributors and therefore roofers who could be putting these shingles on all over the world.

Anyway, I'll keep looking.

Re: T-Lock Shingles


To my knolledge Art Locks and T Locks are two of the only shingles made that a roofer cannot flash correctly. What I mean is, the shingles are not made to be flashed with aluminum or copper. If you look closly at a SG roof you will see TAR and Gravel on all flashing points. It may be a blessing that they do not sell in your area. PS the SG patent expired some years ago. We have a SG roofing co. here in B.C. MI, I have tried to purchase their shingle to do a repair, they wanted $ 300.00 per sq.

Re: T-Lock Shingles


maybe a metal shingle will give you the wind protection you need?

Re: T-Lock Shingles


Thanks siweklumber I'll keep you in mind. I figured out how to sell this customer on steel and I am pretty sure he's gonna bite. It was the better way to go for them anyway. Thanks everyone!
