IKO Shingle Reviews

General Roofing Systems Canada installs IKO Shingles throughout Canada. IKO Shingle Installations are completed in the following cities; Calgary, Red Deer, Edmonton, Fort McMurray, Lloydminster, Saskatoon, Regina, Medicine Hat, Lethbridge, Canmore, Banff, Cranbrook, Kelowna, Vancouver, Whistler, Winnipeg, Toronto and points between. British Columbia. Alberta. Saskatchewan. Manitoba. Ontario.

Service. An advantage that GRS has in Western Canada for shingle installations are the markets we service. In Calgary, Edmonton, Vancouver, and Regina, IKO shingles remain well stocked and distribution is highly efficient. This is a key value for us in servicing our customers.

Due to the competent distribution, local support, and the exclusive IKO 15 Year ironclad portion of the Warranty Coverage that’s offered with the IKO Shingles, our crews would rate these shingles with a moderately high rating.

Quality. With respect to the quality of IKO shingles, the IKO line has a moderately high rating. Their line also exhibits a high level of diversity across specific use cases. Some examples are: High Wind Rated Shingles, Shake Looking Shingles, Luxury Shingles, Algae Resistant Shingles, Energy Efficient Shingles, Low Slope Shingles.

Colors/Profiles/Textures. Most IKO shingles are 100_0710available in a variety of colours. This happens to be a large selling feature with this brand. IKO shingles come in a neat and clean wrapper that is a result of the brand’s consistency with their manufacturing process. This is an important feature for this type of product as shingles need to be installed properly with the correct sizing. Should a shingle be misshapen due to a packaging error, this would affect the overall quality  of function for the shingle itself.

Shingle size consistency becomes really important if a DIY  Installation is being completed. You do not want to learn or attempt to do a shingle project by yourself with shingles that don’t fit together properly.

The textures of the  shingles, or the “Shake Look”, may or may not not suit a high end shingle purchaser. As soon as you get into the Luxury Shingles or shingles that cost the same as tile, then we would advise you to choose an alternative type. The top end of the shingle prices  becomes more of a process of comparisons amongst the selections and ultimately choosing what you prefer.

Here are our reviews broken down by specific IKO offerings. You can click the subheadings to open a new window for each product. Warranty coverage may also be found by following these links.

Marathon Ultra AR 
Our crews regularly use this type as it is an economical 3 tab shingle that installs well and holds up well to the elements. Installation of 3 tab shingles take more skill in some respect. If you attempt to do this on your own, please search our blog for shingle installation guides.

Cambridge
IKO Cambridge shingles are another standard type for our installers. They are consistent with being one of the top performers in their class. The IKO Cambridge shingle is a mid to mid-high grade shingle that is perfect for standard installations. They are readily available and  available in a wide variety of colors. Cambridge shingles are made of  laminate, they are considered to be a designer shingle, and are covered under the IKO Limited lifetime warranty.

Royal Estate
We install IKO Royal Estate Shingles typically only on estate homes. The Royal Estate shingle is an excellent looking laminate shingle that has a traditional estate look. The Royal Estate shingle stacks up to any high end shingle offering on the market with the same slate look for a fraction of the price.

Grandeur (Discontinued)
IKO Grandeur Shingles are one IKO’s SBS Modified high quality shingle selection. This selection is considered to be one of the best due to  The technology used for the asphalt. If you need to install shingles in cold weather , the IKO Grandeur Shingle would be a wise choice on account of it easy installations despite mother natures elements. The only down-sides to theGrandeur IKO Shingles is the high cost and limited color selection, otherwise they are a great shingles and considered one of the best on the market in BC, Alberta and  Saskatchewan for 2011.

Armourshake
The IKO Armourshake Shingle is often over-looked by homeowners. However we really enjoy installing this particular type of  shingle. It is a high end shingle selection from IKO that stands up well against the competition. It has an original design that is often a high interest point with our customers as it adds a unique and elegant finish to your roof.

Now we would like to advise home owners to be aware of selecting high end shingles, as they are often unaware that they contain designs. So when you are completing your roofing project and have selected this particular shingle , you will need to take into account the design for the overall finished look. our specialists at GRS will  always suggest home owners to go with a rep and view different roof lines to get a better sense for the over all designs that are available.

Overall the IKO Armourshake is a great choice if you are aiming for a higher end shingle that has more of a textured pattern to it. the shingles themselves are more costly yet offer a great selection of colors.

Until next time,

Roof Repairs Can Be Costly!

Roofing Calgary Alberta – Roof Repair Report [July 20, 2011]

Inspecting your roof before you buy your home is very important. The roof on your new home may be one of the most costly repairs you do after moving in. Some home inspectors just don’t have the experience to catch problems that can escalate the cost of roof repairs very quickly. Here’s a report from a roof repair from Calgary, Alberta today – our roofers didn’t even catch the problem prior to ripping the shingles off, how could the average home inspector?

Here’s the roof repair report that came in….

         “When we tore the roof of the area I had assessed prior, I discovered there were 3 layers of shingles beneath the one I had assessed which I did not see because they had used drip edge all the way around the roof edge so my small 10 bundle (low slope roof) tear off became a 40 bundle tear off with each layer of shingles becoming more difficult because of the time the shingles had been on the roof. This posed several problems not allowed for in the roof repair costing, first of all because of the fact that our roof repair garbage went from 10 bundles of shingles to 40 bundles of shingles (at about 70 pounds each), I now needed a bin to handle the added shingle tear garbage which I had planned to haul away in the pickup truck and not a shingle disposal bin. The man hours spent on removing the old roof shingles were already a little over total time allowed for the job so I phoned the customer and told him about the situation and that the cost to do the repair had doubled. He agreed under the circumstances I could not have foreseen the extra cost involved in this roof repair and approved us to go ahead and finish the roof repair project.”

Buyer beware – have an expert roofer inspect before you buy your new home!

Metal Roofing Secrets Revealed

GRS Canada re-roof and installs metal roofing throughout Canada. Our roofing services are available in Toronto, Calgary, Red Deer, Edmonton, Lloydminster, Saskatoon, Regina, Medicine Hat, Lethbridge, Canmore, Kelowna, Vancouver, Whistler and points between.

Choosing the right roofing material for your home can be a mystery for many homeowners. With the number of options available, it has become increasingly difficult to choose.

Over the last few years, residential metal roofing has grown significantly in popularity as many homeowners have learned of its durability, while others have focused on the many styles and colors available. However, there is still a greater number who are trying to unravel the clues.

Tom Black, executive director of the Metal Roofing Alliance (MRA), answers the most common questions most homeowners have about metal roofing:

Why should a homeowner consider metal roofing?
Metal roofing has many advantages. For example, metal roofs have a lower life cycle cost than most traditional roofing material such as asphalt or cedar and it can withstand severe weather such as hail, snow, high winds as well as fire. It’s also available in many styles and colors to fit virtually any home.

What is the overall cost of a metal roof?
Metal roofs can initially cost three to four times more than traditional roofing materials, but homeowners should keep in mind that the typical asphalt or cedar roof requires replacement every 15 years. While asphalt or cedar roofs are initially cheaper, when homeowners consider the cost of a metal roof spread out over a 60-year period, metal is the clear choice.

Do metal roofs come with warranties?
While most premium asphalt roofs will last from 12 to 20 years, metal can last more than 60. That’s why you’ll find most metal roofing with warranties of about 50 years — nearly four times more than most other roofing products.

Aren’t metal roofs noisy?
Not at all. Metal roofs with solid sheathing and insulation control noise from rain, hail and bad weather just as well as any other roofing material.

How does metal roofing stand up to extreme weather?
Metal roofing is the most durable roofing material available. Whether it’s hail, snow, severe winds or even fire, metal roofing protects homeowners from whatever Mother Nature can throw their way. For example, in a hail storm, a metal roof’s solid structure prevents dents, dings and other damage hail is known to cause. In fact, homeowners in some areas receive up to a 30 percent reduction in their homeowners insurance for having a metal roof installed.

Will metal roofing help combat the rising cost of energy?
One of the most beneficial aspects of metal roofing is its ability to insulate a home. Not only does metal roofing keep the house comfortable regardless of the weather outside, but it can actually lower air conditioning and heating bills.

Will metal roofing fit with the style of my house and neighborhood?
Definitely! Metal roofing comes in a variety of styles, colors and finishes and is made to look just like other popular types of roofing material including cedar shake, slate, asphalt shingles and clay tiles.

Where can homeowners go for more information on metal roofing?
Homeowners can go to www.metalroofing.com to learn more about metal roofing, view the various styles available and participate in the “Ask the Experts” section.

Owens Corning Shingles 2011 – Our Review in General

Owens Corning Shingles, by default, are a substantial and predictable manufacturer of shingles – Owens Corning is obviously a substantial company. However, in Canada, at least in Western Canada, Owens Corning hasn’t been represented until now, in a way that say IKO or BP shingles have. IKO has significant distribution roots in Western Canada being they are originally from the Calgary, AB area – so our confidence in a predictable representation in the IKO shingle is “very high”, and BP Shingles have been well represented through stores like Home Depot and traditional roofing suppliers for some time in Western Canada.

Owens Corning Shingles now have significant representation in Western Canada as of 2011, in that Lowes has them stocked on its shelves. Lowes stores have popped up all over Western Canada. This increases our comfort level with shingle style and colour availability, and warranty/service support locally in Western Canada.

Owens Corning Shingles have always performed well and are a predictable shingle product. In the same way that we would review the performance, quality, and choice of shingles in our IKO Shingle Reviews on this blog…. we encourage homeowners with specialized or specific requirements from their shingles to look at alternatives in the market also. The Owens lineup is wide and represents designer, luxury and algae resistant requirements, but specific to those and other particular needs we always encourage homeowners to look at alternatives to be sure the right choice of shingle is made. For example, if you are re-roofing a shake roof (be it cedar shake or a pine shake roof) and you are looking for a really nice looking shake shingle that is specific to your “preference” to replace your shake roof, then you want to look at the alternative shingles available in the higher price range to be sure your preference is met – luxury or specialty shingles, especially the true shake looking shingles with the right profiles, are a significant expense.

In summary, Owens Corning Shingles are a solid choice for homeowners that require a modest, mid, or mid-high shingle for their home. The higher end more costly shingles meet more scrutiny in the marketplace and choice of shingle becomes more specific to personal preference. Malarkey, GAF, etc. have high end offerings that should be considered as well. And now that stores like Lowes are carrying the Owens Corning Shingles in Western Canada, the representation, supply, types, and colors of shingles readily available will be predictable for homeowners.

Our Review of Owens Corning Berkshire Shingles

The Berkshire Shingle line are a high end shingle product; classic, elegant and showing great street appeal. This would be a competitive shingle offering to IKO’s Royal Estate Shingle that became available in 2011. Colour choice with shingles is limited, which is common at this level of quality. I believe there are five colours currently available. Owens Corning has a 10 Year “Tru Protection” period on their shingles (which would be similar to the 15 Year no grief protection IKO Shingles carry), and the Berkshire shingle has a Limited Lifetime Warranty coverage.

Our Review of Owens Corning Woodmoor Shingle 

The Owens Corning Woodmoor Shingle Collection is for the shake to asphalt conversion market. The Woodmoor Shingle would be a similar shingle offering to the IKO Armourshake, the Certainteed Presidential TL, and others from shingle manufacturers like GAF and Malarkey.

Many of our clients in Alberta, in areas like Calgary and Edmonton, have a real shingle re-roof dilemma if they are re-roofing a Pine Shake roof. Short story is that not all Pine Shake roofs in Alberta performed as represented. The challenge these homeowners face is replacing a Pine Shake roof that has a thick profile and texture and getting that same look in an asphalt shingle. When they price out Cedar Shake costs or Pine Shake Costs quite often they look to this category of Shake Look-Alike Shingles. Then the price of the high profile shake looking shingles can become price prohibitive. We encourage homeowners in this category of shingle shopping to consider all options.

In high wind areas such as the open prairies it is also nice to consider a heavier shingle like the Shake Looking Shingles, and in areas like North Vancouver, Squamish, Whistler our clients consider the Shake Shingle Look of the Owens Corning Woodmoor and similar shingle offerings to be appropriate to the surroundings and provide excellent street appeal. We have even convinced areas with Architectural Controls for the roofing material being used to re-consider some of the shingle offerings that show a great shake look. Whistler for example has a Shake consideration in the Architectural Controls as does Fairmont, BC where we recently completed a Shake to Shake Looking Shingle Conversion in one of these areas.

Our Review of the Owens Corning WeatherGuard Shingle

The Owens Corning WeatherGuard Shingle is a true high performance shingle. Impact resistant (our clients in southern and central Alberta get a hail beating every year), HIGH WIND RATING IS 130 MPH, and we have many homeowners that constantly struggle with high wind areas and blow offs, etc. Coming home after a vacation to find your shingles blown off and a major leak and moisture in your home really is not fun. The Owens Corning WeatherGuard Shingle is one of the best in its class – hand down. This shingle is available in lots of colours, has great texture, it’s a good looking shingle, and it has a moderate price point.

Our Review of the Owens Corning Duration Shingles

The Duration Shingles from Owens Corning would be a similar offering to the IKO Cambridge Shingles, BP Harmony Shingles, etc. It is the standard laminate shingle offering in the mid range that most homeowners purchase. The price of the Owens Corning Duration shingles is competitive, the performance is competitive, and the shingle profile and texture Owens Corning Duration is a good looking laminate shingle. A great shingle product for the average homeowner in Western Canada.

Owens Corning Shingles – Oakridge Shingles

The Oakridge line of Owens Corning Shingles is a laminate similar to the Duration Shingles above but the entry step up from the 3 Tab Shingle offerings below.

Owens Corning Supreme Shingles

The Supreme Shingle offering from Owens Corning is the traditional 3 tab shingle. There are many colors available and they are inexpensive. The perform as well as any other offering on the market for 3 Tab shingles. Our only word of advice as it applies to a 3 Tab Shingle, be sure to know what you are doing before you start shingling. Learning how to shingle a 3 Tab shingle is different than the Laminate Shingle offerings above.

Industrial Roofing: Roof Coatings, Metal Roof Restoration and Roof Sealants

General Roofing Systems Canada Services Industrial Roofing and Roof Coatings throughout Canada including Toronto, Calgary, Red Deer, Edmonton, Lloydminster, Saskatoon, Regina, Medicine Hat, Lethbridge, Canmore, Kelowna, Vancouver, Whistler, and points between.

Some of the most common issues our clients call us about are low slope metal roofs that expand and contract and leak and flat roof systems that are very costly to replace. Our clients are looking for ways to extend the life of their flat roofs or metal roofing systems.

Truth is, a flat roof or a metal roof replacement is expensive, and there are excellent ways to set off much of the cost of a complete roof replacement.

If you have a low slope metal roof, chances are you have aggravating leak issues. Metal expands and contracts, the seams on metal roofs leak and the roof penetrations on metal roofs leak. A complete metal roof replacement isn’t necessary and replacing a metal roof doesn’t solve the metal roof leak issue anyway.

Roof Coatings for flat roofing and metal roofing available in today’s marketplace are very effective – we can’t stress enough our success in this area of roof maintenance. Premium roof coatings available now solve the aggravating roof sealant and caulking issues and flat roof and metal roof coatings are an excellent alternative to a complete re-roofing.

Premium Roof Coatings now carry a 10 year manufacturer warranty. The product is literally bullet proof when installed and has huge elasticity. The pricing for a premium roof coating is very competitive when considering flat roof or metal roof full life cycle costs, a roof coating is maintenance work so there are tax benefits, and the best part about the roof coatings available now is the new generation of roof coatings perform very, very well. They eliminate the aggravation that comes with metal roof problems and they can save you a lot of the expense associated with constant metal or flat roof repairs, roof maintenance.

Roof coatings set off the need for a complete re-roof/roof replacement for years or even decades.

The photo in this post is of a roof coating crew that completed an industrial roof coating in Lloydminster, AB. The industrial metal roof they coated in rubber is around 20000 sq. ft. and the coating work took just under a week. The roofers pressured washed the metal cladding first and then applied a rubberized roof coating to the metal roof cladded deck. Prior to the field of the metal roof being coated in the elastomeric liquid rubber, a trowel grade liquid rubber is applied to the screws (fasteners), to the seams of the metal cladding, and to any roof penetrations. Then the liquid elastomeric rubber roof coating is applied to the main field area of the roof. Now when this metal roof expands or contracts the seams and the roof penetrations are not going to let water in and the roof won’t leak. Additionally, the life cycle of the roof has been extended for 10 to 20 years and the tax benefit is realized.
