    Best Roofing Shingles in 2019

    For the past six months, Dmitry has been comparing 7 different types of shingles, and roofing tools against each other and rating their performance in the categories of online reputation, weight, granule loss, price, and nailing zone. As the last video in this series, Dmitry Lipinskiy, Founder and CEO of Roofing Insights, decides who has the “Best Shingles in 2019”. Competitors were rated based on three keys factors: quality of the shingles, feedback from installers, and online brand reputation. Roofing marketing was not a factor.

    In respect to all the big players in the game, Dmitry has divided all competitors into two categories: Tier I and Tier II. Tier I can be thought of as the premium brands with high quality products and large fan bases. Products in Tier II may have issues with quality, installers, or reputation. The results are as follows:

    TIER 1: Atlas, Owens Corning, CertainTeed, & Malarkey

    TIER 2: PABCO, IKO, TAMKO, & BP

    1. I have purchased IKO architectural shingles twice for the same roof and have been extremely unsatisfied with their poor durability and the dismal warranty. Why twice? Because the seller assured me that they’re as good or comparable to other manufacturers and maybe the first was “a bad lot.” If that is so, IKO must have a lot of bad lots. Even now, just within 20 years, I am facing a THIRD roofing job because these shingles did not hold up. As you can see, I am extremely disappointed in IKO and would never recommend their shingles.

      • Thank you for that info! The roofer just offered IKO because they had the color when the other brand did not. Now I think I will look into GAF. Just saw a video on IKO shingles….no Bueno.

    2. It’s a great source of knowledge; I think it will be helpful for lot of people who are looking for best shingles in 2019. Thank you very much for sharing this article, this is really helpful for me, thanks again!
