Attention: homeowners T Lock Roofing Shingles are no longer available and no longer manufactured. Back in the late 60’s the T-Lock Shingles were widely use and applied to a vast amount of homes in the Denver metro area. At that time it was concerned an up-grade to use them. Now after time use they have become a discontinued roofing product system. T-Lock product is no longer available and no longer manufactured because of this T-Lock can’t be spot repaired. Since T Lock Roofing Shingles can’t be repaired, we have been helping homeowners obtain new roofs through their insurance companies. T-Lock Shingles roofs have a distinct look and can be identified by their individual “T” shaped shingle as shown in the pictures and diagrams.
As one Insurance adjuster, explained that “normally a roof would be repaired. But homes, like many others in the Denver area that have T-Lock Shingles. When they were installed, T-lock shingles were considered state-of-the-art for high-wind-prone areas. But shingle technology has changed; T-lock shingles aren’t made anymore, so they can’t be repaired.” “The insurance company,” he said, “was
obligated to replace the roof.”

Brief history on T-Lock…T-lock shingles have fallen from common use in recent years. They were configured to self-lock into each other using lateral tabs and slots, like a 3-tab with ears that could be inserted behind the tab to either side. T-Locks have been widely believed to be more wind-resistant than seal-down shingles because of the overlap system, but they are frequently assigned the same tested wind-resistance rating as a 3-tab or laminated roofing shingle of the same warranty period.
Three reasons T-lock type shingles are no longer made:
Topic: T Lock Roofing Shingles
Not a reliable shingle.
Appearance in the interlock configuration.
Not able to spot repair.
