MarathonTM Plus AR

IKO Marathon Plus AR is a time-tested, traditional 3-tab roofing shingle. Its weather-resistant design is based on a solid construction of durable fiberglass mat to help shield homes against the forces of nature. The classic design of IKO Marathon Plus AR will flatter any style of home.

Engineered to Protect Your Home, Family and Other Valuables Against the Elements

Our 3-tab roofing shingles are built to last, thanks to their solid construction, flexible fiberglass mat and weather-resistant design. And, because they come in a metric size that’s larger than many comparable shingles in their class, they’re faster and easier to install.


1. Built-In Algae Resistance

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

2. An Exceptional Bonding Experience

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.

3. UV-Resistant Granules

IKO’s exclusive, advanced color blending technology has created some of the most visually appealing color blends for the most popular colors. Whether you want your home to blend in with its natural surroundings or stand out in their neighborhood, you’re sure to find a wide variety of very attractive options.
