Ice & Water Protectors
Water is a home’s greatest enemy. Roofing shingles are the first line of defence but IKO’s Ice & Water Protectors provide crucial, added protection. Because IKO is a vertically integrated manufacturer, it maintains strict quality control over the materials that go into its ArmourGard, GoldShield and StormShield® roofing products. These membranes are part of IKO’s PRO4 Roofing Components for total weather protection and peace-of-mind.
ArmourGard is a modified bitumen roll roofing product that is applied as a protective layer under shingled roofs. This membrane prevents water penetration caused by ice dams or wind-driven rain. ArmourGard can also be used as underlayment around roof-top structures or apertures such as chimneys, dormers and skylights, to name a few. It can also be applied as an exterior vapor barrier for foundations and basements.
GoldShield is a premium Ice & Water Protector. In fact, it’s the best underlayment IKO has ever made. If properly applied, its unique sealing properties form a protective seal around each nail or fastener leaving no space where water can drip through. This self-adhesive membrane has a silicone-treated release sheet that is easily removed for quick installation. A slip-resistant surface makes installation safer, too.
StormShield® is an economical, modified bitumen roll roofing product that protects critical roof areas that are most susceptible to water leakage caused by ice dams and wind-driven rain. When properly applied, this self-adhesive membrane creates a watertight seal and its tear-resistant properties ensure that it will protect against potential ice and water damage for the long term.
