There are many brands of asphalt shingles available on the market. As a local roofer, we prefer the IKO products because of their advanced technology shingles and wide variety of styles and colors. They offer three tab, architectural, and designer style shingles for every home's budget and style. Many of their higher end shingles come with ArmourZone protection, which make IKO's shingles wind resistant up to 130mph and offer impact resistance. If your home is partially in the shade and has the unsightly streaking or staining on the current shingles, ask about IKO's lines with algae protection.
The most popular lines are their Cambridge™ and Dynasty® architectural shingles that can give your roof that three-dimensional look most homeowners desire today. The Cambridge also has an impact resistant line that is rated Class 4 Impact Resistant and may qualify you for a discount on your homeowner's insurance.
If you're looking for a Premium Designer shingle, IKO offers three options. The AmourShake™ which mimics the look of hand cut wood shake shingles but unlike wood shake is Class A fire resistant. Their Crown Slate™ provides the look of a slate roof in an asphalt shingle without the investment or maintenance of real slate but many of the benefits. They also come with Class 4 Impact Resistance rating and have an extra coating of SBS modified asphalt to handle the cold Wisconsin winters better than most shingles. Lastly, the Royal Estate™ which is also a slate look roof at a more modest price than the Crown Slate™ line.
