IKO Shingles - Crowne Slate Shingle Reviews
IKO Shingles

IKO Crowne Slate, Owens Corning Berkshire, and the Certainteed Grand Manor all rate in Top 5 in the Consumer Reports annual  reviews. The products that provide the most competition for the IKO Crowne Slate Shingle are: the GAF Grand Slate, the Certainteed Centennial Slate shingle, Certainteed Grand Manor, IKO Royal Estate and in some aspects the Owens Corning Berkshire shingle.

If you can get away from the classic estate look or the 3 tab classic estate look, we would recommend the Malarkey Legacy SBS Modified Shingle. however, in regards to the classic estate shingle reviews, here’s what we’ve discovered this year from the installers in the field  along with what the Consumers Reports has to say.

Roofer’s Review of IKO Shingles

The new IKO Royal Estate is an excellent shingle and consistently receives positive reviews from our installers.

The GAF Grand Slate , Certainteed Centennial Slate and the Owens Corning Berkshire shingle are all exceptional shingles. Yet what stands out this year in reviews from the installers is clearly the IKO Royal Estate Shingle and the IKO Crown Slate Shingle.

Hands down these two shingles are being reviewed by our  replacement installers as the best shingles available for 2011 (classic style or estate profile shingles). This is also agreed upon by Consumer Reports. Our installers most specifically like the no hassle 15 year front end warranty on the IKO Shingles and the SBS Modified Component of shingle such as the IKO Crowne Slate. The GAF Grand Slate is asphalt (a respectable shingle), but not an SBS Modified Shingle like the Crowne Slate or Grandeur Shingle from IKO.

Consumers Reports Rates / Reviews Shingles

The latest available Consumers report has the following reviews available for shingles:

The Certainteed Grand Manor Shingle, Owens Corning Berkshire Shingle, and the IKO Crowne Slate Shingle all rate in the top 5 Shingles Reviewed with  review ratings of 87, 87, 86 respectively.

In the opinion of our shinglers installing the new IKO Royal Estate shingle, they feel  the Royal Estate shingle would receive a high rating as well, yet it was not included in the reviews.

Also missing from the reviews were the Malarkey Legacy shingles. This particular shingle is also a favorite amongst our installers.

So when considering the classic look shingle this year, give the SBS Modified IKO Crowne Slate a look (which is a bold looking shingle) or the IKO Royal Estate shingle, and if you would like to stray away from the classic look, take a look at the Malarkey Legacy SBS Modified shingle.
