IKO Armourshake Designer Shingles. Like Genuine Wood Shakes, Only Better for the Homeowner and Your Bottom Line.

IKO Armourshake designer laminate shingles are among the largest and heaviest we make. Their extra-thick, contoured profile, large dragon’s teeth and generous 5-1/2” exposure create the luxurious, upscale appearance of natural wood shakes without their regular maintenance worries.

For prospects whose local building codes prohibit the use of genuine cedar shakes

For prospects whose local building codes prohibit the use of genuine cedar shakes due to flammability concerns, you can offer them the in-demand, designer look they want without this worry because IKO Armourshake shingles boast a Class A Fire Resistance rating.

And that 5-1/2” exposure we mentioned? Our special “IKO Advantage” size gives you another edge over your competitors. IKO Armourshake shingles are packaged 70 shingles to a square while some options on the market can range up to 90 shingles per square.

That means you’ll get up to 20% more coverage so your crews can install them faster and with less waste, allowing you 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. 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 five ultra high-definition color blends that look spectacular and virtually eliminate the issue of mismatched color lots. 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

Remember to mention that special granules embedded into the surface are designed to help inhibit the growth of blue-green algae that can cause unsightly black streaks or discoloration, to keep your homeowner’s new roof looking great for a long time.
