KO’s Limited Lifetime Warranty. IKO Unified Warranty
Cambridge™ IR with ArmourZone® Extreme weather calls for Extreme Weather Protection ~ Performance Shingle With A Limited Lifetime Warranty.
Your home and family deserve the protection and peace of mind that IKO Cambridge IR shingles have to offer. They’re engineered to provide exceptional protection against wind uplift and water penetration. These high-quality, laminated architectural shingles are fortified with ArmourZone to resist wind and inclement weather even better than before. Not only are the IKO Cambridge IR shingles built for the harshest winters, they also have incredible benefits for hot weather as well.
IKO Cambridge Cool Colors feature a shingle coating embedded with special granules that reflect a greater amount of solar energy than standard roofing shingles. This high-reflectance technology allows less solar radiation, or heat, to enter the home through the attic and also allows absorbed radiation to be released back into the atmosphere.
As a result, Cambridge Cool Colors shingles help to lower the roof’s temperature on sunny days throughout the year, potentially reducing overall cooling loads on the home and energy costs associated with air conditioning.
In fact, studies from the Cool Roof Rating Council (CRRC) have shown typical cooling energy savings of 10 to 30 percent associated with cool roofs. However, the specific energy savings can depend on various factors, including geography, climate, utility rates and type of construction, among others.
IKO is a world-wide leader in the roofing, waterproofing and insulation industry for residential and commercial markets. A vertically integrated company, IKO operates more than 25 manufacturing plants throughout North America and Europe. IKO is a family owned business established in 1951.
We’ve elevated these asphalt shingles to perform exceptionally by adding the ArmourZone. IKO Cambridge IR features a Limited Wind Warranty for winds of up to 210 km/h (130 mph) with the use of only four (4) nails.That’s a Category 4 on the Saffir-Simpson Hurricane Scale.
