IKO Armourshake Designer Shingles Offer Homeowners a One-of-a-Kind Look and Superior All-Weather Performance.

IKO Armourshake designer laminate shingles are among the largest and heaviest we make. An extra course of IKO Armour starter strips further elevates their already-impressive dimensional thickness. Specialty Armourshake roofing accessories, like UltraHP IR capping shingles, accentuate the roofline to help protect the most vulnerable areas and create an unforgettable roofscape.

Performance never looked so good.

IKO’s Ultimate Shingle in Design, Thickness, Heavy Weight and Exposure

Armourshake shingles carry a Class 4 Impact Resistance rating.* Install them with IKO PROFORMAX Integrated Roofing Accessories and IKO’s High Wind Application to qualify your homeowner’s new roof for limited wind coverage to 130 mph (210 km/h).

*This rating is solely for the purpose of enabling residential property owners to obtain a reduction in their residential insurance premium, if available. This is not a guarantee of impact resistance against hail. Damage from hail is not covered under the limited warranty.

IKO’s special “Advantage” size gives you another competitive edge. Armourshake is packaged 70 shingles to a square, while some comparable products can range up to 90 per square. You’ll get up to 20% more coverage. Your crews can install Armourshake faster and waste less to move on to the next job sooner. More jobs mean more profit.

More Reasons You Can Recommend IKO Armourshake with Total Confidence

The proprietary IKO FastLock® sealant has one of the fastest tack times currently available, even in extremely cold temperatures. (Note that the limited wind resistance warranty requires that shingles are sealed at the time of installation.) When activated by the sun’s radiant energy, it quickly forms an effective seal to protect against wind uplift and water penetration for enduring performance in all kinds of weather. Fewer blow-offs mean fewer call backs. Another big win/win.

Ultra High-Definition Color Blends

IKO’s exclusive, advanced color-blending technology has created four ultra high-definition color blends that look spectacular. The color you order is the color you’ll get, time after time, batch after batch. Just one more worry you can cross off your list.

Algae-Resistant Granules

Special granules embedded into Armourshake’s surface help inhibit the blue-green algae growth that can cause unsightly black streaks or discoloration helping to keep your homeowner’s new roof looking great for a long time.
