By Stacy Mellete

The area’s top roofing contractor Largo, Affordable Roofing Systems, proudly carries products by TAMKO, who are celebrating their 75th anniversary in the industry this year. Here is a look at how TAMKO began and how they have become the success that they are today.


TAMKO History

Built by E.L. Craig and Mary Ethel Craig out of a streetcar barn in Joplin, MO, the business was named after their vision of serving the areas of Texas, Arkansas, Missouri, Kansas and Oklahoma. Since its founding in 1944, TAMKO has grown immensely and is now known for its high-quality, beautiful and innovative products. It has had thousands in its employees throughout its existence and has made it a point to give back to the communities surrounding their locations through various sponsorships and other charitable acts.

TAMKO Guarantee

This has been made possible through their diligence in fostering continuous learning throughout the organization and by instilling the values of hard work, fairness and honesty in their employees. As a top roof repair and installation company Largo, Affordable Roofing Systems finds value in the same things.

Our Roofing Solutions

Your roof has an important job to do to keep your home dry, but it can also be an impressive home feature.


Our stone coated steel roofing system is available in a wide range of styles including Tile, Shake, Slate, and Shingle, and in a variety of colors. We’ll help you to choose one that will fit your home’s style and your budget.


As the most-used roofing type across North America, asphalt strikes a balance between price and durability, with a life expectancy of up to 20. Shingles are available for those who want affordable, genuine slate roofing.


Tile roofs offer unparalleled value when cost per year of use is factored in. While upfront costs are higher, customers who choose a clay or concrete tile roof will enjoy the aesthetics and quality for a lifetime.


Metal roofs today come in a wide array of colors and finishes. Innovations in metal roofing technology have significantly enhanced the performance of metal roofs.

TPO Membrane

TPO can be installed to any scale with some of the world’s largest building utilizing TPO roofing systems – it comes in strips typically 8ft 10ft and 12ft wide that are heat welded on site.
