About Asphalt Shingles
Making good choices for your roofing materials and colours can boost the curb appeal of any style of home, be it contemporary, urban or rustic. At Couvreurs Lakeshore Roofing, our experts will help you select the ideal asphalt roofing shingles for your home, taste and budget. We feature asphalt shingles from one of Canada’s premier manufacturers, IKO.
IKO is a family-owned business based in Calgary, Alberta; they know a thing or two about temperature and climate extremes. Since 1951, they’ve built state-of-the-art manufacturing plants and are a leading supplier of asphalt shingles worldwide (click here to learn more).
We at Couvreurs Lakeshore Roofing are proud to have been selected as the only residential roofing installer in the greater Montreal area chosen as an “IKO Craftsman Premiere” installer (click here to learn more). Why should you care? Because it means that we have successfully proven to IKO that we have superior technical skills and dedication to customer service to deserve this coveted designation. It also gives us access to advanced training, industry insights and discounts, which we pass on to our customers.
Providing shelter from increasingly unpredictable weather is the key element of a well-built roof. If the materials and workmanship of the roof covering system are not of the highest quality, your entire home is at risk. Snow, hail, wind, rain, mould, insects and rodents can all cause severe damage over time.
By having your roof replaced by Couvreurs Lakeshore Roofing using quality IKO roofing products, you can rest assured you are getting quality workmanship and state-of-the-art materials backed by the best guarantee in the industry.
We offer a choice of four different collections by IKO to suit your taste, budget and your home’s architectural style: designer, performance, architectural and traditional. They all provide beauty you can see, the quality you can feel and performance you can trust.
All of the asphalt shingle we install provide superior protection against:
Surface uplift (curling)
At the core of the IKO shingles is a resilient fibreglass mat which they manufacture at their own fibreglass mill. The mat is thoroughly impregnated and coated top and bottom with asphalt, which adds weight to help the shingles lie flat and resist wind uplift and is also their main water-resistant ingredient. IKO can modify this asphalt with certain additives designed to impart specific qualities. Impact resistance is an example.
This innovative technology offers such superior protection that we can now offer you even better guarantees against the wind than ever before.
