This product has totally failed. The contractor and product have both bailed on the warranty.

"Junk, Junk, Junk, Junk, Junk, Junk"
Iko shingles were installed on my home in 2001. Less than seven years later they were cracking and curling. Iko made us remove two of the crumbling shingles and send them to iko on my dime, along with multiple pictures. When iko received the shingles they claimed that there was nothing wrong with the shingles and refused to compensate us a penny! This is by far the worst product that I have ever purchased in my 47 years of being on this earth. For no reason should you purchase iko shingles! If someone were to offer them to me for free I would turn it down without hesitation.

In 2007 my roof was re-shingled with iko Aristocrat 25 shingles. Noticed after 4 years that they were starting to curl and discolour. Also noticed an accumulation of grit in my evestrove. Sent samples and photos to iko. Advised by iko warranty people that this normal. IKO's motto is Setting the Standard. I agree, they are setting the standard for manufacturing an inferior shingle and deceptive marketing practices.

Had my roof replaced (with a tear off of old roof) in 1996 with iko shingles... With a 25 year warranty. 16 years later my roof was leaking. Called the contractor that put did the work, he went up on the roof and looked at the shingles. He said they are cracked and "creeping" (moving apart) and I needed a new roof. He told us how iko would not stand by their product and he's had multiple customers that had the same problem.

"Do Not Buy IKO !!!!!!!!"
35 year warranty shingles have disintegrated after 12 years. My insurance company cancelled my homeowners policy because the roof shingles are so bad. These iko Aristocrat shingles have failed on other houses in our area. Do not buy iko !!

"4 years & they started falling off"
As usual the warranty does not stand up. They blame the installer who has had a roofing company for a number of years.

We had a total strip and re-shingle in 2000, this included some plywood replacement (this was done by a roofing company). In 2007 I noticed several tabs missing in the spring. They had left 1 extra bundle, so I thought I would just replace the missing shingles. Unfourtunitly when I opened the bundle, all of the shingles were cracked! Great shingle, they don't even last stored in the garage. To date I have replaced about 2 bundles worth of shingle - every year I go up and replace the cracked and missing ones. It looks like Aristocrat 25 shingles are not part of the class action suit, it maybe for the best, their are so many restriction, it would be tough getting anything.

"A very well made shingle"
As a company we have been slowly moving our mix of shingles from gaf to iko. We are currently about 50% iko and 50% gaf. We find the performance of the iko Cambridge lt to be superior to the Timberline hd. We began using the Cambridge in 2010. To this date we have not received a single blow off compaint. In the same time span we have had blow off of the Timberline. Not major, mind you, but it does exist. I believe the lighter weight of the Timberline does indeed contribute this, their "facts" nothwithstanding. We also like the fact that we use fewer shingles per job. It saves a bit in nail cost. Because the Timberline does not cover 100 sq. Ft/3 bundles we generally need to order 1-2 bundles extra per job. This does increase our cost and in today's economic climate that means alot. We will continue to use the Timberline as it is requested by many of our prospects and is a good product. We just feel IKO Cambridge to be superior overall.

"Aristocrat 25 Year Warranty - Toronto"
Shingles have failed totally causing roof leaks and now forced under pressure to replace the roof. IKO is insisting on needing sample shingles and only allowing a small percentage of the value of the shingles. 14 years from install and only allowing 25% allowance.
