OK shingles for those wanting a little better three tab

Giving IKO  a little credit for offering a upper tier 3 tab shingle.  Also we really like the white shingle option for those looking at energy efficient shingles in a southern climate.  They reflect the hear and help keep cooling cost down.   They also have some nicer varied shingle color patterns to play with if you are trying for a certain look.

All that being said there is little appeal left in three tab shingles for most of the population, you can often find AR or dimensional shingles for only a little more.
