Re: whats the beef with IKO shingles?

Hello, read this thread and I saw the familiar names of IKO and Owens Corning. I'm from the city of Sevastopol in Ukraine and we have these producers are gaining momentum in sales, but the contractors roofers do not like this product because it is covered with cracks in the bends, poorly sintered in a single layer. The main competitor of U.S. manufacturers bitumen roof in Ukraine speaks Finnish Katepal (not cheap, quality stuff).
I apologize for the clumsy English.

Re: whats the beef with IKO shingles?

Here in the Poconos, many of the homes built in the late 90's and early 2000's have been done with IKO shingles. After 12 years many of them have to be redone. They are curling and falling apart. I don't know if they are making them differently now.

IKO has a slightly different look than the others, it is the least expensive shingle I can find that carries a Class 4 hail rating.
