iko shingles review 2015

When installing shingles on your roof, it’s essential to hire a roofing contractor with a rock-solid reputation including years of experience. Moreover, you must ensure your roof is properly vented to prevent a buildup of heat and moisture in the attic, which is a major cause of shingle failure. You should also read the warranties of any brand you’re considering. Some brands have better protection than others. For instance, some have better wind resistance and others don’t.

In general, IKO shingles get good ratings from consumer reports. The company has made a big investment in the quality of its shingles over the last few years, and granule loss is much better than it used to be.

However, IKO has a reputation for refusing to back its warranties, and homeowners are often denied compensation for their problems. This article will give you an overview of IKO’s different shingle lines and the ratings that they receive, so that you can make a informed decision.

IKO’s Crowne Slate shingles are a popular choice among homeowners in hurricane-prone areas. They have a 110 MPH wind warranty, and a special nailing area that reduces the chance of the shingles being torn off by high winds. They’re available in 9 colors, and are comparable to CertainTeed Presidential Shake, Owens Corning Berkshire shingles, or GAF Timberline HDZ shingles.

The Cambridge shingle line is another excellent option for homeowners who want a dimensional/architectural shingle. These shingles have two layers that are staggered in size and resemble natural slates. They’re available in 10 colors, and their algae-resistant granules help stop black streaking on the roof.
