    IKO Dynasty Challenges OC Duration in Impromptu Pull Test

    Dmitry tries to see if results match what he witnessed at Roofing Insights’ warehouse

    By Ethen Kim Lieser

    During the first day of the IRE in Dallas, Texas, Dmitry decided to have a little fun. When he passed by the Owens Corning booth, he noticed that the IKO Dynasty shingles weren’t part of its pull test. So, Dmitry scurried over to the IKO booth to retrieve a sample, with IKO’s permission of course. Then, moments later, something unexpected happened.

    On OC’s home court

    Let’s not forget that this was Owens Corning’s testing station, so any “away team” playing in this particular game would probably be at a disadvantage. But a quick examination of the station really didn’t show any inconsistencies. It seemed to be a fair game, and kickoff was seconds away.

    2 unforgettable tests

    In the first test, IKO Dynasty notched a score of 47, and OC Duration a 32, a number that an OC representative confirmed falls into the average range of 30 to 35. Definitely a win for the visiting squad, but there is still time for a quick rematch. In the second test, both shingles’ scores rose — IKO 53.5, OC 38.2 — but the end result was the same.

    Takeaways from the challenge

    Here in Dallas, IKO Dynasty indeed was the cream of the crop. But when Roofing Insights conducted similar tests for a period of over two weeks, OC Duration was raising the trophy more often than not. So for Dmitry, what this proves is that both products possess amazing technology and have become players to be reckoned with in the roofing industry.

    Two big thumbs up

    In short, Dmitry has no reservations about highly recommending both IKO Dynasty and OC Duration. These two products are like two heavyweight champions standing toe to toe. On some days, IKO will get the KO, and in others, it’s OC standing tall. The future of both products indeed looks bright. The job isn’t done, however, as you have Dmitry’s word that Roofing Insights will continue to test these and other shingles in the coming weeks and give you full in-depth reviews on their YouTube channel.
