"IKO Hates homeowners"
A local IKO authorized contractor installed IKO shingles on my home. The shingles blew off 3 separate times in less than 1 year. The local contractor would no longer repair the roof. I had a certified inspector check my roof and it was found that the shingles were not properly installed to IKO published specifications. I had to have the roof replaced to save the interior of my home and I sued the roofing contractor. IKO sent a rep from the home office to support the local contractor and testified that even though they had not seen the installation, that it had been installed correctly and only wind gusts above the wind rating for the singles could have been the cause of the singles blowing off 3 times. Fear IKO, they will actively try to screw homeowners to protect the roofers that are distributing there product. Customers do not matter, only sales and profit.

Cambridge AR is very good shingle... The problem out there is the low quality contractors/installers with limited knowledge of the correct methods to do it right, not the shingles and material. Also 3 tab shingles from any manufacturer should not be used any more.

"Shingles fly off"
House built in 2011. I have had multiple shingles fly off my house at least 10 times since we moved in. The first week we moved in, neighbor came over to tell use our shingles flew off 2 times before we moved in and you now have some gone. I hired a 3rd party roof specialist. He informed me is not the installation, its the 3 ply shingle that is the problem. Iko, just wants to bandage the problem and not replace all of the shingles. I so angry as the lack of professionalism in their reps as well. Their rep inform me that they took my shingles to a "laboratory" to have tested. No results or contact for over 9 weeks. I am looking into legal advise. Please be aware home buyers!

IKO shingles are the worst shingles and so is their warranty they gave a warranty of 25 years. The shingles didn't even last 10 years and are ready to get replaced after the complain they want to pro rate by giving the bundles of shingles and not to get replace the whole roof.

We love our IKO shingles! Our home is very exposed to high winds living on a hill & they have stood the test of time. We're going on 11 years and no signs of aging or wear & tear!

"Dynasty is a Great Shingle"
I brought the new Dynasty shingle from IKO. We selected this shingle because we live in a city with high winds. So far so good, we had several days with high winds and this shingle has been outstanding.

"People stop buying IKO shingles"
New home from builder with 25 years warranty on iko shingles, never in the world would I think I would have to replace shingles after 11 years, they look like junk! Curled up deteriorating falling apart and this is happening now in the entire subdivision, how can this company still exists after so many bad reviews, there are lawsuits in place in us and Canada, can't wait to join that list.

"Surface falling off, tabs widening"
The builder installed Iko single tab shingles when the house was built in 2000 with supposedly a 25 year life. Within 12 years the stones surface was falling off and the tabs between the shingles was widening. I sent two shingles to Iko. They responded saying the shingles tested well and there was no problem with them. I am now in the process of replacing the roof and definitely not with an Iko product.

"Seems like I am with a majority"
Put on 25 year warranty shingles not even 12 years ago. Tenant pointed out mold in closet and bedroom and so I had the roof inspected. It is shot! I contacted the company that installed (they are certified as per the Iko website) and they told me the warranty is prorated - when I asked the percentage per year I was told it was a complicated formula and I had to call Iko. Thought I would go on their website and look up warranty details - nope! Tells me to contact local representative - I can see a run around already coming. Also, what do you have to hide when you won't post details of your warranty on your website? It is the weekend so I have to wait until Monday to start my quest but it is fair to say that the Iko roof did not even come close to the expected life-span of the shingles. Likely they should have been replaced about 2 years ago but who thinks that a 25 year roof will only last 10 - 12 years.

House built in 2009. Every year shingles blow off in 40-50 mph winds. Most failed to seal. You can see them waving in the wind and it sounds like a herd of animals on the roof as they bounce up and down. Iko denied the warranty saying they were improperly installed because some of the nails are outside the lines. The installer is gone and iko tells me I am out of luck. Iko shingles are imho too light and don't include a heavy enough seal strip to do any good. So after six years I get to buy a new roof. Words can not express my anger towards iko and the contractor who selected them.
