"3 leaks within 3 years!"
I had a brand new reroof job installed in 2014. Ive had 3 leaks within 3 years. I guess this is why the contractor left me with about 100 yards of felt, and 5 packages of shingles that were left over from the install...so that I could do the repairs myself! Im now about to roll the dice on Atlas Pinnacles... I'll let you know the outcome in a few years. :)

Do not buy these shingles. A slight breeze and they blow off as they do not glue together. Garbage!

Keep trying to sell and promote IKO. There are enough people protesting their product that out number anything positive and a warranty that isn't worth the paper it's written on. New construction in April 2015. March of 2017 blow offs from not locking. The locking strip does not compare to others. visible when laid next to another shingle, even from the shingle I used (IKO builtmore) compared to the Iko cambridge! Claim denied based on improper installation. Any time one nail isn't exactly where they say it should be they can reject your claim. You are at their will and mercy. They will not send a rep out to inspect.I had 3 roofers at my home. All inspected my roof. All 3 indicated faulty shingles not locking. All 3 have been roofing for over 25 years. I'm not talking about a couple roofs a year I'm saying millions of dollars in business every year. I purchased the IKO product based on the shingle life and warranty not the price. The IKO product was recommend to me by the installer I hired. Be advised, people that post negative reviews on them have a good reason to.I've been in skilled trades for years. This is a shame for anyone to deal with.

"By Far a Superior Product"
I have been an IKO distributor for over 10 years and have sold approximately 1.5 million squares of IKO Cambridge in that period of time. I have never had issues with IKO. They are by far a superior product to all other shingles out there. They are larger, heavier, with a heavier fiberglass mat than any shingle out there. They contain more asphalt than any shingle. Their 5-7/8" exposure puts all other shingles to shame. The elegant appearance on the roof cannot be matched. Anyone complaining about this shingle should look into the installation workmanship. Many roofer high nail the shingles which causes blow offs. The adhesive on the IKO shingles is second to none. The colors are beautiful and their algae resistant granules are better than the competition. By far, the best shingle on the market.

"High Performance Product! Well done!"
I am the owner of Great American Roofing and Restoration. We have offices in 6 Cities. We use IKO in our Denver location and I wanted to share a real life experience that we had recently in Colorado Springs. Earlier this year that area experiences 110 MPH winds. I am happy to say that all of our competitors had broken shingles that were at a 45 degree angle and the homes we did with IKO had no damage! Kudos to the new seal technology. We are switching all of our offices to IKO!

"Unhappy Consumer Installed"
I put these shingles on my roof and have had nothing but trouble. With in the first year of putting them on I had to replace several sections after a rainstorm. They do not have enough glue and lift easily and snap in half. After they were installed we have had to replace many 6 different times. They should be banned they are a waste of money. Due to the fact that I am a senior citizen and on a fixed income I cannot afford to rip them off and replace them with a good shingle. I highly recommend no one ever use them. Also, there is no representative in the area and the form they ask you to fill out for a complaint is ridiculous. Installed 2010

"After 17 years, my 35 year shingles are completely shot"
I built my house at the end of 1999, and have just been noticing how the shingles are all curled and falling apart. I'm definitely going for a lawsuit, be it with the Class Action, or personally. Now that I see the terrible reputation this company has, I will make sure they make this situation right.

Bought a new home 3 years ago. First 45-50 mile per hour wind blew off half the roof. Looked at the Iko shingles that blew off and found that not one of the shingles had sealed down. We found the roofer and he said they would not blow off unless it was more than 50 mph. It could have been over 50, needless to say he won't do a damn thing. I Looked at oc duration with sure nail technology and the youtube video and I am convinced with using 6 nails and the quality of their adhesive that they will not blow away even at 100 mph.

Had a new roof installed through Sears Canada in 2004. 12 years later shingles are loosing all the asphalt, there is more on my patio than left on the roof. Company customer service is bully like. Will never consider iko shingles again. They are cheap, with false warranty period. Maybe that's why Lowe's and Home Depot sell them. The contractor I recently had to do some reno on the house told me a 25 year Iko shingle might get you 1-12 years of service. Go to a different company to buy shingles unless you like throwing $ off your roof.
