architectural shingles

I'm confused. I had IKO shingles on my house and they only lasted 8 years. My question is what is the best Architectural shingle to use in the northeast that will actually last as warranted.

architectural shingles

What's wrong with them? How well is your roof ventilated? What are the conditions of your house (in a field, surrounded by trees, salt air...). You haven't given us much to work with...

No shingle will last the warranty period because of how insanely long they are. If you want a long lasting roof go with metal or slate...

Because they had IKO on the wrapper .. IKO shingles dry up quicker than the rest, and the glue is inferior..
