We have even lost shingles after they were repaired by the contractor. I also noted that they did not use a common tar paper underneath the shingles. It looks like some kind of recycled paper and it is light brown in color, so you know what that is?
I have also noted that when the wind blows I can see A LOT of shingle ends coming up in the breeze. I am very concerned. Can you advise?
I built a house in the spring of 2000 and put IKO Cambridge 25 shingles on in August 2000, I had shingles blow off the roof in Feb.2001 and every Feb/March since!!
I have had a three year running battle with IKO, the shingles never sealed properly and I have had to repair my roof six times so far.
I am trying to get IKO to replace the entire roof for me, they no longer have the Cambridge 25 in their product line up, no surprise!!
I would love to hear from you on any other responses you've had on your e-mail, my address is: email@example.com
It took IKO two years to get an inspector up to look at my roof and after two minutes up top he said there was a problem with the shingles!!
That was last year and I'm still fighting with them.
