Dimensional shingle in beautiful natural colours
Cambridge Xpress has a unique look and feel: it makes your house look a bit classical, somehow traditional but still contemporary. Thanks to its 8 natural colours Cambridge Xpress suits every home. These 8 colours are carefully designed with blends of granules. The original purpose of these granules is to protect the waterproof bitumen on your shingles. This protection could be guaranteed by other material as well, but only granules combine this protection with great esthetics. IKO coated granules are carefully blended to assure beautiful natural colours. These shingle granules are finished with a coating to prevent colour fading.
