IKO Roofing, Waterproofing And Insulation Experts. This Canadian-bred roofing, waterproofing and insulation company has been in the same family for four generations. Founded in Calgary, Alberta in 1951, IKO started out by manufacturing building paper and coated roll roofing and has now grown into a global operation with 37 plants across Europe and North America. IKO has over 3 500 employees and ships roofing products to some 96 countries around the world.
As it has grown from a start-up to a worldwide enterprise, IKO has retained its commitment to quality, craftsmanship, and attention to detail. Combine these traditional values with the embrace of cutting-edge technology and the pursuit of continuous improvements to efficiency, productivity and waste reduction, and you have a leading company in the global industry.
Vertical Integration for Unmatched Quality
IKO believes that in order to produce products of the highest quality, you need to have control over the raw materials used in the manufacturing process. To achieve this, they have adopted the self-reliant practice of vertical integration, which means that they make almost every major component that goes into their products themselves. For example, IKO manufactures its own fibreglass, oxidizes its own asphalt, quarries and crushes its own limestone and even makes the plastic wrappers that protect the shingles in transit itself.
IKO’s primary product categories are residential roofing, commercial roofing and waterproofing, and insulation. Among their top products are four classes of asphalt roofing shingles, with some of the heaviest-weight fiberglass mats on the market for optimum weather protection; an extensive line of upmarket accessory products, including ice and water protectors, underlayments, starter strips; commercial roofing systems and accessories; insulation including rigid polyisocyanurate insulation board in both vapour permeable and impermeable formats. Whatever your roofing, waterproofing or insulation need, IKO has a top-quality solution for you.
