Renovation for Curb Appeal


Exterior Home Renovation House with IKO Cambridge shingles

“A new survey shows renovation spending reached $68 billion in 2014, $20 billion more than was spent on new homes last year.”

– Financial Post

Roof Centre carries the brands to make any home stand out!

Curb appeal not only makes living in your home more enjoyable; it helps with re-sale value. Many potential buyers drive by homes that they are interested in, so having a well maintained exterior will increase interest. Recently, many Canadian homeowners have been renovating instead of buying new. Not every homeowner has the time or money for constant exterior maintenance; that’s why Roof Centre brands known for their performance and design. It is important to be informed on which products will last in both appearance and performance! IKO Dynasty® Shingles, Royal® Estate™ and Portsmouth™ by Royal® Building Products have what you need to garner interest in your property.

Performance Shingles by IKO®


IKO Dynasty with ArmourZone performance laminate shingles give you full coverage, lowering job costs associated with extra bundles and the labour to install them.

These oversized shingles are heavy-duty and are installed with a 5 7/8” exposure. Their special 1-1/4” reinforced nailing area (the ArmourZone) ensures incredible fastening power. They’ll help resist nail pull-through even at high winds and carry a 210 km/h (130 mph) wind limited warranty1 with the use of only four nails. IKO’s special FastlockTM sealant also helps resist water penetration and guards against wind uplift.

IKO’s advanced colour blending technology creates distinctive hi-def colours that will make a home harmonize with its surroundings or truly stand out.
