"New house with junk shingles on it!"
Just built a new house and have had nothing but trouble with iko shingles. Every time there's a hard wind comes we have to call the contractor to fix them. In a years time we have had him come out 7 times to patch work. And he contacted the iko company they keep telling him that he gotta have a picture of the address and samples of the shingles to send to them and he has done that but they never have got back to him. So he puts us off because the iko has never contacted him back. So he keeps patching. But something's gotta be done because I have several leak spots on the ceilings in a new house. But I don't how to begin doing anything.

I had Aristocrat shingles installed in 2008 and they started to lift and fishmouth in 3 years!! Iko would not honor the iron clad warranty and claimed the roof ventilation wasn't adequate. It was adequate for the previous shingles which were still ok after 20 years. I then found out the shingles are in the class of "organic" and are involved in a class action law suit. Now I am taking my roofer to court for installing organic shingles when my contract stated "composition asphalt shingles". This apparently means fibreglass shingles. Never again iko!

Shingles curled, lifted and started to blow off after two years. Factory identified the problem with the shingles but refuses to help. Roofing installer is now replacing roof with another brand.

"35 yr roof lasted 16 yrs"
I am retiring. My 35 year roof lasted 16 years. Now I have to replace a roof on a house that I am selling. This is a poor product. There may be a class action lawsuit against them.

Been installing iko shingles in Texas for the last couple years now at the advice of a vendor of mine. I have had nothing but problems with these shingles. I hate whenever I hear there is a wind storm coming in any city I have installed these shingles cause I know I will be having to go replace at least a square of shingles. I have attempted to get IKO's warranty department involved as it appeared there seal strip is not sealing properly in the cases where we are having to replace these wind blown shingles. IKO's warranty department came back with a denial to our claim stating that there were nails improperly nailed. There evidence was two shingles where my installers had shot the nail less than 1/8" of an inch above the nail line. Really if that is the bull crap that pull to get out of a warranty claim then were done.

"IKO is crap"
We just had a house built last spring, We used iko cambridge shingles, and every time the wind blows, we lose more of them. IKO refuses to replace the roof. According to our contractor, IKO has offered to "black jack" the whole roof, but not replace the roof...nor will they warranty the black jack because it is not their product. Where do I get in on the law suit????

This product has totally failed. The contractor and product have both bailed on the warranty.

"Junk, Junk, Junk, Junk, Junk, Junk"
Iko shingles were installed on my home in 2001. Less than seven years later they were cracking and curling. Iko made us remove two of the crumbling shingles and send them to iko on my dime, along with multiple pictures. When iko received the shingles they claimed that there was nothing wrong with the shingles and refused to compensate us a penny! This is by far the worst product that I have ever purchased in my 47 years of being on this earth. For no reason should you purchase iko shingles! If someone were to offer them to me for free I would turn it down without hesitation.

In 2007 my roof was re-shingled with iko Aristocrat 25 shingles. Noticed after 4 years that they were starting to curl and discolour. Also noticed an accumulation of grit in my evestrove. Sent samples and photos to iko. Advised by iko warranty people that this normal. IKO's motto is Setting the Standard. I agree, they are setting the standard for manufacturing an inferior shingle and deceptive marketing practices.

Had my roof replaced (with a tear off of old roof) in 1996 with iko shingles... With a 25 year warranty. 16 years later my roof was leaking. Called the contractor that put did the work, he went up on the roof and looked at the shingles. He said they are cracked and "creeping" (moving apart) and I needed a new roof. He told us how iko would not stand by their product and he's had multiple customers that had the same problem.
