IKO has introduced EdgeSeal, a double-sided, self-sealing adhesive starter roll designed to bond shingles to the roof deck at its perimeter. IKO’s EdgeSeal serves as an upgrade option for contractors, providing the critical protection required to keep a roof secure during extreme weather events.
Compatible with all IKO shingle lines, IKO EdgeSeal is a membrane designed for roof perimeter sealing and to be installed at both the eave and rake edges. A double-sided, self-adhering starter roll, IKO EdgeSeal’s adhesive formulation is aggressive. It bonds to both the drip edge and/or underlayment below and the first course of the laminate asphalt/fiberglass shingle above.
Paired with IKO’s Nordic or Dynasty performance shingles, IKO EdgeSeal is part of a complete performance roof system that provides protection against blow-off and damage during extreme weather events. IKO EdgeSeal is also an accepted component of the Insurance Institute for Business and Home Safety’s (IBHS) FORTIFIED Home standards. (Not all homes built using EdgeSeal will qualify for a FORTIFIED Home designation. Homes require compliance with all FORTIFIED Home technical requirements and additional inspections.)
IKO offers an array of additional roof starter products, including Leading Edge Plus and Armour Starter.
