High Performance Shingles. Home Protection Elevated.

Who has seen the wind and the damage it can do? According to several studies, almost everyone in North America, no matter where they live because extreme weather events, like high winds, fierce storms and damaging hail, are on the rise.

The IKO Performance Collection includes IKO Dynasty® and NordicTM shingles, reinforced with ArmourZone® for exceptional high-wind and weather performance. Both carry an Impact Resistance rating: Dynasty is Class 3, and Nordic is Class 4 — the highest rating possible against hail.*

* The Impact Resistance ratings are solely for the purpose of enabling residential property owners to obtain a reduction in their residential insurance premium, if available. This is not a guarantee of impact resistance against hail. Damage from hail is not covered under the limited warranty.

The Awesome Nail-Holding Power of IKO’s ArmourZone Tape

The IKO ArmourZone is a tough, tear-resistant reinforcing tape that’s built into the underside of these shingles. It extends the nailing zone to be 40 percent wider than standard architectural shingles, guiding installers for more accurate nail placement. Its extraordinary holding power helps minimize nail pull-through during installation and in high-wind storms.


IKO Dynasty performance shingles are engineered to resist high winds. They carry a limited high-wind warranty coverage for winds up to 130 mph (210 km/h) and a Class 3 Impact Resistance rating.* They have a standard asphalt coating embedded with blue-green algae-resistant granules that help resist the black streaks and discoloration such algae colonies can cause. Dynasty shingles are manufactured in IKO’s special “Advantage” size and are available in a large selection of high-definition color blends.


IKO Nordic performance shingles are among the top-performing asphalt shingles currently available. They’re engineered for superior wind and impact resistance, carrying high-wind limited warranty coverage for winds up to 130 mph (210 km/h) and offering a Class 4 Impact Resistance rating*. Their fiberglass mat has an extra-thick coating of Polymer Modified Asphalt, embedded with blue-green algae-resistant granules. Available in nine high-definition color blends, these shingles are made in IKO’s special “Advantage” size.

*These impact ratings are solely for the purpose of enabling residential property owners to obtain a reduction in their residential insurance premium, if available. It is not to be construed as any type of express or implied warranty or guarantee of the impact performance against hail, of this shingle by the manufacturer, supplier or installer. Damage from hail is not covered under the limited warranty. For further details concerning the FM 4473 standards, visit the FM Approvals website.

My wife had called and said there was this crazy storm coming through Des Moines. We basically had hurricane speed straight-line winds that stretched 770 miles. There are roofs with shingles missing and fences blown down. But as far as functionally installed products, with the combination of the fasteners and the ArmourZone technology in the IKO Dynasty and Nordic lines, they’re designed for wind resistance. Everything came out in tip-top shape.

I am David Kluender, I am the Branch Manager for the Des Moines and Cedar Rapids branches of Apple Roofing here in Iowa. Apple Roofing is a residential and commercial roofing company; we specialize in roofing and gutters. One of our goals as a roofing company is to change customers’ perspectives and ideals of what a roofing company is by using premium materials and knowing that we’ll be there every step of the way.

We had the derecho come through which was winds of the excess of 100 miles an hour. It managed to blow trees that are decades old, put down power lines and rip roofs and shingles off of people’s houses. I personally recommend IKO shingles to all the homeowners that I help. It’s been proven and proven with the storms that we’ve had come through and the long longevity that we’ve done with homeowners.

We had some IKO shingles put on by Apple roofing and not a single shingle blew off. All things considered, our house and our roof – pretty amazing.

It was scary, the rain was coming in the window and two feet onto the floor. Many had lost electricity for over two weeks. My new roof that Apple Roofing put on using the IKO Dynasty shingles stayed strong and there was absolutely no damage. I was so happy.

At the end of the day, our customer experience is the most important thing to us. It’s who’s under the roof that matters the most, not just the roof.
