Shelter against the storms of life is one of the most important and basic human needs.
When it’s time to protect your home and family by investing in a new or replacement roof, you can choose quality IKO roofing products with total confidence.
We offer a choice of four different collections to suit your tastes, budget, your home’s architectural style and the climate where you live: Traditional, Architectural, Performance and Premium. They all provide beauty you can see, quality you can feel and performance you can trust.
One of the biggest decisions you make as a homeowner is selecting the right color of shingle to match your home’s exterior elements and potentially boost its curb appeal. Colored granules on the surface of the shingle produce the visual effect you see from street level.
Whether you want your home to blend into your natural surroundings or stand out from the rest in your neighborhood, we have the ideal color to make the most of your home’s architectural style and express your personal style too.
At IKO, we quarry and crush our own mineral granules then use our exclusive, advanced color blending technology to create an impressive range of color options for you to choose from. In fact, we offer some of the most spectacular color blends currently on the market.
Along with the color blends, the contour or profile and dimensional depth of our laminated shingles can give your home the sought-after upscale look of natural slate tiles or genuine wood shakes without their associated maintenance worries and expense.
All our granules contain special ultraviolet (UV) stabilizers that make them more colorfast so the shingles keep looking as great as they perform over the years. The granules also protect the underlying asphalt from the sun’s UV rays, which can potentially damage or cause it to break down, making the shingle brittle and less flexible.
Depending on which shingle you select, special granules with algae-resistant additives are available to help inhibit the blue-green algae growth that can cause harmless, but unsightly, black streaks, stains and discoloration.
Over the years, we’ve introduced several product enhancements that continue to set IKO shingles apart from many others.
We also manufacture or control most of the raw materials we use ourselves. By knowing exactly what goes into our shingles, we know exactly what you can expect to get out of them.
At the core of our shingles is a resilient, fiberglass mat which IKO manufactures at its own fiberglass mill. The mat is thoroughly impregnated and coated top and bottom with asphalt, which adds weight to help the shingles lie flat and resist wind uplift and is also their main water-resistant ingredient. IKO can modify this asphalt with certain additives designed to impart specific qualities. Impact resistance is an example.
At IKO, we’ve formulated our own special sealant that’s activated by the radiant heat of the sun and whose tack time is among the fastest in the industry. Once the adhesive bonds to the shingle below it, it helps the shingles resist wind uplift and blow-off. It also helps prevent water penetration caused by wind-driven rain by preventing the shingles from lifting.
A few years ago, IKO was among the first to introduce the metric-sized shingle. Since then, we’ve also produced even larger shingles in some of our collections. This is significant for two reasons. First, it creates a larger exposure for visual appeal. Second, it makes installation faster and easier which can help your contractor minimize labor costs.
High-quality asphalt shingles are the first line of defense against the elements but they’re most effective when used in combination with other complementary roofing products.
IKO PROFORMAX Integrated Roofing Accessories are specifically engineered to work together as a high-performance, integrated roofing system. They include:
• Hip and ridge cap shingles which protect the vulnerable areas of your roof while creating an impressive roofline for added visual appeal.
• Ice and water protectors for increased resistance to potentially harmful water penetration.
• Starter strips that not only guide installers to lay the first course of shingles correctly, but provide extra resistance to wind uplift and blow-off.
• Synthetic underlayments that are the last line of defense against water penetrating the roof deck and entering the home below.
Shingles alone are sometimes not enough to protect your home. So IKO developed a multilayered residential roofing system to better protect your home. Industry-leading roofing materials such as deck protectors, synthetic underlayments, roof starters, and capping shingles make your roof last longer, so you and your valuables feel safer inside.
Just like IKO Shingles, IKO’s vertical integration offers a higher level of quality assurance by controlling the creation of nearly all roof accessories.
Water is a home’s greatest enemy. Roofing shingles are the first line of defence but Ice & Water Protectors and IKO GoldSeamTM Tape provide crucial, added protection. Because IKO is a vertically integrated manufacturer, it maintains strict quality control over the materials that go into its ArmourGardTM, GoldShieldTM, IKO StormShield® Ice & Water products and its IKO GoldSeam Tape. These membranes are part of IKO’s PROFORMAXTM Integrated Roofing Accessories for total weather protection and peace of mind.
One of the key components of a properly installed asphalt shingle roofing system is a secondary protective layer of underlayment. IKO Synthetic Underlayments are perfectly suited for use with all IKO shingle products. Choose either of IKO’s synthetic underlayment products to give your roof that secondary layer of protection, and give yourself complete peace of mind.
The lower edge of any roof is one of the most critical areas for overall roof performance and wind resistance. To get the best performance from your IKO roof, and to ensure your roof system is installed in compliance with one of the requirements for the high wind resistance limited warranty protection, start your roof installation with one of IKO’s premium roof starters. Installed below the first row of shingles, and along roof rake edges, roof starters literally get your roof started in the right direction.
Almost every steep sloped roof will have a ridge at the top of the roof where different sides of the roof meet. Many roof designs also have sloped ridges (hips) where roof planes meet an angle. Ridge cap shingles are used in these locations to provide a complete watershedding system starting right where raindrops first meet your shingles. The use of IKO Cap Shingles or an IKO approved equivalent is required to meet the terms of the IKO Limited Warranty.
IKO Ener-AirTM and IKO Enerfoil® are non-structural sheathing rigid polyisocyanurate insulation boards, engineered to provide improved thermal resistance. Both are HCFC-free.
Low-slope roofs present special challenges in terms of preventing unique types of damage. IKO Roof-Fast Low-slope Roofing Components are engineered and manufactured to meet those particular challenges.

You may not need a new roof at 15 years, but it’s a good time to start monitoring it’s health. At the 15 year mark if you haven’t performed any maintenance on your roof it’s a good idea to have us inspect for any potential issues and estimate remaining lifespan.
Moss starts as a thin green layer on and between shingles, but then it proceeds to lift those shingles up as it grows, allowing water to seep underneath. Hello, wood rot and leaks. Left untreated, the clumpy greenery can cause virtually any roofing material to degrade any type of roof.
As part of our maintenance service we will clear your roof and inspect for further potential issues.
At this point, water has already penetrated the underlying moisture barrier or will proceed to do so very soon. This issue needs to be addressed immediately as potential wood rot would be inevitable. Our team will be able to identify solutions based on the severity of the situation.
Gutters and downspouts are the unsung hero of your home. When properly functioning, they go a long way toward protecting against rain, the natural enemy of any manmade structure.
– If you notice your gutters cracking or sagging
– Paint is peeling on the outside of your house
– You have wood rot around windows and ledges
– There is discolouration on the walls of the house
– If you notice your gutters cracking or sagging
At this point depending on the severity of the problem, you may need a gutter replacement or maybe just a gutter guard can be retrofitted.
Our manufacturer’s roofing systems come with varying lifetime warranties for up to 50 years for manufacturing defects. To ensure you are completely satisfied, we will address any irregularities or issues you encounter.
