Who is IKO?
When looking for reliable shingles, it can be hard to find a brand that can deliver on giving you durable and long-lasting products. That’s where IKO comes in. Though IKO is only one of many shingle brands that we associate with here at Advanced Roofing, they are still an amazing brand that produces a quality product, nonetheless. Just like the other shingle brands we use, IKO made their name in the industry with a combination of innovation, hard work, and a commitment to quality and customer service. With the company being founded in 1951, they began producing shingles in 1954. It didn’t take long for IKO to find their foothold in the industry. Now, with a spot in the shingle business for decades and decades, they have solidified themselves as a go-to brand for any shingle related product. IKO is a wonderful brand and we are happy to utilize their products.
Why We Recommend IKO Shingles
Even though we’ve established that IKO has a great reputation and is an industry veteran, you may still be wondering what it is about their shingles that is so amazing. Their shingles are great for a number of reasons from their durability to their aesthetic value.
The Dynasty shingle is an oversized shingle that is meant to withstand the elements with ease. This particular shingle is able to withstand extreme winds due to what IKO calls ArmourZone. Basically, the use of this ArmourZone is what makes the shingles so wind resistant. It keeps them from lifting up if winds were to get underneath them and it gives the shingles the ability to withstand extremely powerful winds without shifting. Along with that, these shingles are coated in a weathering asphalt that gives them a Class 3 Impact Resistance rating. They also come in a variety of colors, making them a truly versatile and powerful shingle.
Though the Cambridge shingle is meant to be IKO’s more affordable shingle, they didn’t need to sacrifice any functionality to do so. The Cambridge shingle is still a highly durable shingle in its own right and it is designed to be able to withstand harsh weather conditions. Just like the Dynasty shingle, the Cambridge shingle can come in a variety of colors to suit your home. Even at an affordable price, the Cambridge shingle is still a reliable and defensive shingle for your roof.
The Marathon shingle is a 3-tab roofing shingle that is built to last. With weather-resistance in mind, the Marathon shingle can withstand tough weather due to its fiberglass mat. Though this shingle is more limited in colors than IKO’s other options, it is still a quality shingle. The Marathon shingle also comes with the added bonus of having an algae-resistant granule
implemented into it which prevents and controls blue-green streaks of algae growth on your roof. The Marathon shingle is a solid choice for any price-conscious homeowner that wants a reliable shingle that will last.
Other IKO Reviews
IKO is universally enjoyed by those who have used their shingles. After sifting through a number of reviews on Google and other sites, it is clear that the shingles from IKO are long-lasting and durable. Some users have also pointed out how aesthetically pleasing the shingles are on their roof. Overall, IKO has a positive reputation with those who have worked with and made use of their shingles and Advanced Roofing & Construction couldn’t agree more.
IKO’s warranty policy varies depending on which shingle you have purchased, but there are few things to emphasize when it comes to how it works. With their Iron Clad Protection policy, there are a number of factors that would determine whether a customer’s shingles need to be replaced under the warranty. If the shingles that were purchased were defective or failed in some way, IKO would step in and look into the situation to figure out whether it was due to the product itself and then handle the matter accordingly. Each unique shingle from IKO has its own expiration date for when they stop being covered by the Iron Clad Protection policy. As an owner of these shingles, you should make yourself aware of when the warranty ends on your given shingle. IKO will also replace shingles that do not live up to their wind resistance standards, but that would require determining if it was the product itself that caused the issue. Like many other shingle companies, IKO offers a manufacturer defect warranty that covers shingles that don’t live up to their expectations. However, each shingle exists within its own timeframe as far as coverage goes and it is very important that the buyer is knowledgeable of the timeline on their specific shingles.
