IKO Royal Estate Designer Laminated Shingles. One Small Step Up in Price, One Giant Leap in Curb Appeal.

If you have a prospect who wants a high-end designer look at an affordable price, IKO Royal Estate designer laminated shingles may well be the perfect solution and an easy upsell for you. We designed IKO Royal Estate as an entry level to our Designer Collection and as a step up from our ever-popular Architectural Collection.

Homeowners will get the same sought-after, upscale look of genuine slate tiles – as well as the peace of mind that comes from a Class A Fire Resistance rating – that IKO Royal Estate has to offer but here’s how they differ.

IKO Royal Estate roofing shingles have a 5-5/8" exposure

IKO Royal Estate roofing shingles have a 5-5/8″ exposure but thick, irregular lines delineate the individual “tiles”, creating the appearance of random, hand-hewn slates instead of the even, large square cut of IKO Crowne Slate shingles. The finished look of IKO Royal Estate on the roof still evokes the timeless beauty of natural stone, just in a different pattern. One that’s equally as stunning and adds important curb appeal.

High-definition color blends

Our exclusive, advanced color blending technology has created four high-definition color blends, all based on the various hues that natural slate comes in and all embedded with IKO’s special blue-green algae resistant granules, to help keep those colors looking their pristine best.

This process is also your assurance of quality because, from batch to batch and plant to plant, it has made mismatched color lots virtually a thing of the past.

Upsell to IKO Royal Estate and Elevate Your Bottom Line

IKO Royal Estate comes packaged 64 shingles to a square and each bundle yields 33-1/3 square feet. That means three bundles will give you exactly 100 square feet of coverage. Unlike with some of the other options available which fall short of a true square, you won’t have to order more material than you need to make up the shortfall. Sparing that unnecessary waste can really save you time and money over the course of a project.

Installers find that IKO Royal Estate shingles go down fast and easy

Installers find that IKO Royal Estate shingles go down fast and easy. The sooner your crews can complete a project, the better for your bottom line.

Strips of IKO FastLock sealant hold them firmly in position when the sun’s radiant heat activates their holding power. Even in extreme cold temperatures, this proprietary sealant has one of the fastest tack times available. The sealant forms an effective barrier against water penetration from ice dams and wind-driven rain while also providing resistance against high winds and shingle blow-off.
