Shingles are the ideal roofing material for new buildings and renovation projects. They are a professional and colourful roofing material with a light load, which allows the designer a great deal of freedom for creativity.
Invented in 1863 bitumen roof shingles are currently still the most frequently used contemporary roof covering material in the world for houses after ceramic tiles.
The IKO group which specialises in the production of bituminous roofing materials has grown to become one of the world market leaders with 13 factories now established worldwide.
