Weather or Not.
Extreme weather calls for extreme weather protection. And Nordic’s™ unique combination of superior wind and impact-resistant features makes it one of the top performing asphalt shingles on the market.
Nordic derives its impact resistance from a coating of polymer-modified asphalt, which acts as a shock absorber to cushion your roof from impacts from hail.*² The coating is applied to IKO’s heavy-duty fibreglass mat, and the resulting combination provides superior weather resistance, even in cold weather.
Their special 1 1/4 inch reinforced nailing area (the ArmourZone) ensures incredible fastening power. They’ll help resist nail pull‑through even in high winds and carry a wind limited warranty¹ with the use of only four nails.
We’ve achieved a high‑definition appearance for IKO Nordic shingles by combining our advanced colour‑blending technology with deep shadow bands for added dimension. The result? Now, you can have the high‑end look and visual texture of genuine wood shakes or slate tiles without the high‑end price.
* This is not a guarantee of impact resistance against hail and is not covered under the limited warranty.
