Class 4 Impact Resistant Shingles – IKO Armourshake


Now that Armourshake gives the Class 4 impact rating, it gives myself and the homeowner more peace of mind. Armourshake is one of the heavier and nicer shingles on the market. We’re a family business, my father and I, we were both roofers ourselves. There are a lot of companies out there that own roofing companies that have never put a shingle on. We can relate to our guys, and we really understand the difficulty of the job and how to get it done in the best possible way. We’re out here in Morgan Creek, Surrey and this is a larger strata than most. They are in a ‘cedar or better’ subdivision, where they actually had to go to the municipality and fight back and forth to get the asphalt shingles approved because their first cedar roof only lasted them about 16 years. Five years ago, I was invited to the clubhouse here at The Carrington to showcase IKO Armourshake and IKO won it because of the quality, availability pricing, and the determination to have a better shingle put on the roof than cedar. This is the first one in Morgan Creek that has been converted over to asphalt shingles. This project is quite possibly the largest Armourshake project in all of North America. It’s 27,500 bundles of Armourshake weathered stone, which equates to about 5,500 squares of roofing material. And that’s just in four phases, there’s still another phase to come. Roofmart delivered most of our product to site and had all the products in stock and ready for us to take it as needed. IKO and Roofmart have been great to deal with, I’ve had no issues on this 5,500 square project. To have 27,500 bundles of product installed without a single problem… phenomenal. I was just saying that to the lead hand here today, I was like ‘why haven’t you called me?’ And he said, ‘not a single issue.’ And that’s why they’re getting pizza today.

When working on a 27,500 bundle project, it’s important to have a quality shingle that homeowners and contractors can depend on and will provide peace of mind during the installation process. That’s why Class 4 IKO Armourshake shingles were selected for this subdivision project, making it the largest North American IKO Armourshake project!
