Discover Why IKO Cambridge Architectural Shingles Are So Popular

Our high-quality roofing shingles provide superior weather protection and boost the curb appeal of homes throughout the United States and Canada as well as many export markets. IKO Cambridge architectural shingles can enhance any home’s style, from traditional to modern, rustic to urban. Their dimensional profile and deep shadow bands evoke the upscale  appearance of natural wood shakes, creating a high-end designer look at an affordable cost.

IKO Cambridge shingles are engineered to withstand the elements for years, making them one of the most durable shingles you can buy.

 Thanks to our exclusive, advanced color blending technology, IKO Cambridge architectural roofing shingles are available in a full range of color blends (including Cool Colors for select markets). This is just one great reason why IKO Cambridge remains among our most popular shingles with homeowners and contractors alike.

Another is that these shingles come in IKO’s special “Advantage” size which is larger than many competitors’ comparable product. This means roofers can install these shingles faster and their larger-than-average exposure creates greater visual interest, giving your home a spectacular designer look.

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

IKO Cambridge delivers on our promise of beauty you can see, quality you can feel and performance you can trust. All at a comfortably affordable price.


1. Blow-off Protection

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

2. Built-In Algae Resistance

We embed special algae-resistant granules into our shingles to help inhibit the growth of blue-green algae that can cause unattractive black stains, streaks and discoloration.

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 FastLock® 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.

IKO Cambridge roofing shingles 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 IKO Cambridge 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. Deep shadow bands add eye-popping contrast.


What is a Cambridge shingle?

IKO Cambridge is IKO’s line of Architectural Shingles. Their modern, laminated two-piece design provides the depth, dimension and texture of wood shakes for an upscale appearance without the upscale price tag.

How much does a bundle of Cambridge shingles cover?

IKO Cambridge shingles come in IKO’s “Advantage” size. They are larger than most competitor products, they have a generous 5 7/8” exposure and 3 bundles cover 100 square feet. This means that fewer shingles will cover a larger area, making installation faster.

How long is IKO Cambridge warranty?

IKO Cambridge shingles have a lifetime limited warranty and a 10-year Iron Clad protection period (U.S. only), and a 15-year Iron Clad protection period (Canada only).

What is the difference between Cambridge and Dynasty shingles?
