IKO Cambridge Architectural Shingles Offer Durable Curb Appeal

Article-IKO Cambridge Architectural Shingles Offer Durable Curb Appeal

IKO IKO Cambridge architectural shingles
IKO Cambridge shingles are constructed with a fiberglass mat coated top and bottom with weathering asphalt.

Offered in 10 color blends, IKO Cambridge shingles deliver an upscale appearance to enhance curb appeal.

The architectural shingles feature a modern, laminated two-piece design that provides the depth, dimension and texture of genuine wood shakes, with the convenience and durability of an asphalt shingle.

The shingles, which are larger than most products in their class, allow installers to cover more roof in less time with fewer bundles. Cambridge shingles are IKO True Square Advantage-sized, offering enhanced curb appeal via their 5 7/8-inch exposure and faster installation thanks to their larger dimensions. And with three bundles covering a full square, planning a project can be done with precision.

IKO Cambridge shingles are constructed with a fiberglass mat coated top and bottom with weathering asphalt, then surfaced with colorfast algae-resistant granules that help inhibit the growth of blue-green algae, which can cause unattractive black stains, streaks and discoloration. The two layers are held tightly in place with five strips of tough laminating adhesive.

Cambridge shingles also feature IKO’s proprietary FastLock sealant, which creates a strong bond between installed shingles to help ensure maximum protection against wind uplift, blow-off and water penetration.

They feature a limited wind-resistance warranty up to 110 mph (177 kph) with standard installation and 130 mph (210 kph) with high-wind application. Put simply, IKO Cambridge laminated asphalt shingles are designed to withstand the weather.

“IKO Cambridge are our best-selling shingles, and that is no surprise,” said Jeff Williams, IKO’s North American director of branding and marketing. “Cambridge asphalt shingles provide heavy-duty performance at a price point that can put almost any home into an architectural shingle.”

With Cambridge laminated asphalt shingles on their roof, homeowners can customize the appearance of their home to suit their style and taste without sacrificing durability.
