Whenever I use an IKO-Cambridge architectural asphalt shingle, I always accompany it with #RhinoRoof. This high-profile shingle underlay is a great value for my dollar as a contractor.

A synthetic, 15-pound underlayment (only to be used with an #asphalt shingle) means say goodnight to traditional felt paper. This felt replacement is yet to disappoint me.

Here are some of the characteristics of #RhinoRoof:

-Meets ASTM D226 & D4869
-25 x Stronger than 15 lb roofing felt
-6 squares more per roll compared to 15 lb roofing felt
-Ease of installation – wider, lighter, more coverage per lap
-Synthetic construction is impervious to mold growth
-Lays flat and does not absorb water and wrinkle
-Enhanced UV protection
-No oil leaching – no hazardous material content
-Fiber grip slip-resistant walking surface
-Advanced backside non-slip coating
-Low temperature flexibility

#IKO-Cambridge architectural shingle

There are a wide variety of American, Canadian and internationally manufactured asphalt shingles on the market.

They all have similar manufacturers’ warranties, wind protection, algae protection and durability, with some slight variances, depending on what you’re looking for.

For years I have used an IKO-Cambridge architectural shingle. While I am open to other products and would always place my customer’s request in top-priority position, I have had an overall good experience with IKO-Cambridge.

The price: reasonable. The curb appeal: reasonable (accentuated with HP, high profile, ridge capping for sure). The iron-clad manufacturer’s warranty: above average: visit www.iko.com and select their ‘IKO Unified Warranty Booklet’ to learn more.

Above all, whichever contractor you choose, ensure that there is some type of limited workmanship warranty (three-seven years is standard), that they are knowledgeable on provincial/state building codes and that they are insured. Roofing is a dangerous industry. Insurance from your contractor is an absolute must.

If you have a home in need of repair or a re-roof and you are in the Calgary, Alberta, Canada area, feel free to learn more about us @ www.rippysroofing.com or by calling us @ 4038052980.
