Make the Right Choice for Your New Roof

IKO Cambridge Cool Colors shingles can be used to comply with California’s Title 24, Part 6 cool roof requirements to help reduce a home’s carbon footprint, potentially reduce home energy bills and possibly increase property values. Now, IKO’s NEW COOL and COOL PLUS color blends with an SRI of 20 or greater can boost a roof’s reflectivity by 25 percent over the Title 24, Part 6 minimum standard of SRI 16 for steep sloped roofs! Homeowners who reside in Los Angeles City and County, where cool roofing reflectance requirements are in effect, can use cool roofing shingles with an SRI of 20 or greater, in order to comply.

Shingles with an SRI of 16+ can still be used to comply with California’s Title 24, Part 6 cool roof requirements. Some lighter colored shingles can achieve a Solar Reflectance Index (SRI) of 16 or greater with our standard granules. However, to achieve an SRI of 20 or greater on the darker hues, we embed surface granules that are specially designed with infrared-reflective pigments to transmit less of the sun’s solar energy or radiant heat into your home’s attic.

This helps your roof and the home it protects stay cooler than if it were roofed with conventional shingles. Exactly how much energy can be saved will depend on your area’s geography, climate, utility rates, your home’s HVAC system and other factors.

Classic Protection and Timeless Beauty

All three IKO Cambridge Cool Colors cool roofing shingles share the advantages of the ever-popular IKO Cambridge shingle line.

Engineered to protect your home against the elements, IKO Cambridge shingles have a resilient fiberglass mat that’s designed to lie flat and stay flat.

Thanks to IKO’s special “Advantage” size, these laminated roofing shingles are larger than many competitors’ comparable product. That means they go down fast and easy. Their above-average size also means a larger exposure that creates a visually interesting, textured appearance for your new roof.

Their dimensional profile and unique color blends will create a spectacular, high-end look that will be the envy of your neighborhood, no matter what your style of home or personal taste.

Choose IKO Cambridge Cool Colors Shingles for Your New Roof. And Rest Easy.

Peace of mind comes from knowing that these quality architectural roofing shingles are doing exactly what we engineered them to do — stand guard as your home’s first line of defense against Mother Nature’s fury and look fantastic doing it. Every IKO Cambridge Cool Colors shingle delivers on our promise of beauty you can see, quality you can feel and performance you can trust.


1. Cool Roof Requirement Compliance

All these laminated architectural roofing shingles are engineered to comply with California Title 24 Part 6 Cool Roofing Requirements. The medium and dark color blends meet or exceed the most stringent Los Angeles City and County cool roof reflectance requirements of having an SRI of 20 or greater.

2. Blow-off Protection

Printed nail lines guide installers to position and fasten the shingles correctly, to help keep them on the roof and prevent them from blowing off in high wind.

3. The Only Time It’s Good to be Tacky

You want your new shingles to stay put. If the wind lifts them up, water can sneak in underneath and may cause a leaky roof. Our shingles have IKO FastLockTM sealant strips along their bottom edges. When activated by the sun’s heat, these strips get extra-tacky and create a strong bond to ensure maximum protection against wind uplift, blow-off and water penetration.

4. This Shingle’s Core Strength Is Its Fiberglass Mat

Our fiberglass mat is coated top and bottom with weathering asphalt, then surfaced with colored granules. It’s heavy-duty for exceptional durability and structural integrity.

We Never Take Quality for Granted. And Neither Should You.

Like IKO Cambridge roofing shingles, their IKO Cool Colors counterparts are built heavy-duty. You can see and feel the difference. Touch one. Feel its weight. Check that the cut is precise.

The modern, laminated two-piece design of these roofing shingles provides depth and dimension. By staggering the size and position of the shingle’s “dragon’s teeth,” we’re able to create a random, varied pattern that emulates the rich textured appearance of genuine wood shakes.

That’s how IKO Cambridge Cool Colors architectural shingles offer you beauty you can see, quality you can feel and performance you can trust. Not to mention potential home energy savings!
