What are the benefits of IKO asphalt shingles?
- Good Product Performance. IKO shingles perform well in extreme temperatures and in areas where wind, water, and ice are prevalent.
- Affordability. The efficient, high-volume and fully automated production and relatively low application cost of asphalt shingles gives consumers an overall value that’s unmatched by other roofing materials and superior life expectancy.
- Low Maintenance. IKO shingles, when properly applied require little or no regular upkeep, and if damaged are easily repaired.
- Easy Application. IKO shingles are easy to apply compared to other standard roofing materials. Due to their flexibility and strength they can be applied in different designs of roofs.
- Fire and Wind Resistance. IKO shingles are manufactured to resist external fire and flammability standards, and carry Class A, B or C fire ratings, with Class A providing the greatest fire resistance. In addition, IKO shingles carry a "wind resistance" label because they have been manufactured and tested to demonstrate great resistance in high-wind locations.
What common terms will I come across when using IKO shingles?
- Asphalt: A bituminous waterproofing agent applied to roofing materials during manufacture.
- Deck: The structural surface to which the roofing or waterproofing system is applied.

- Membrane: A roof covering or waterproofing layer whose primary function is the exclusion of water.
- Pitch: The degree of roof incline or slope expressed as the ratio of the rise, in feet, to the span, in feet
- Re-covering: The process of covering an existing roofing system with a new roofing system.
- Re-roofing: The practice of removing an existing roofing system and replacing it with a new roofing system.
- Ridge: The uppermost, horizontal external angle formed by the intersection of two sloping roof planes.
- Underlayment: Asphalt saturated felt used beneath roofing to provide additional protection for the deck.
- Valley: The internal angle formed by the intersection of two sloping roof planes.
- Hip: The inclined external angle formed by the intersections of two sloping planes.
