Cambridge versus Dynasty Shingle

What Does The Dynasty Shingle Offer Over The Cambridge?

Posted on August 23, 2018 · Posted in Asphalt Shingle Roofing

At Horch Roofing, our team is often asked how the Dynasty line of shingles by IKO compares to the shingle manufacturer’s Cambridge line. Both styles of asphalt shingle provide industry-leading protection for your home against the elements, but which one is right for your home or business? Let’s take a closer look at the differences between the Dynasty shingle and the Cambridge.

Style & color

Dynasty shingles offer jaw-dropping curb appeal with deep shadowbands and bold contrast. The impressive added dimension takes your roof from an afterthought to a focal point, making your home the envy of the neighborhood. The Dynasty shingle is available in eleven bold color blends with a guaranteed color match to your home with IKO’s Color Blend Technology.

Cambridge shingles provide a beautiful color scheme for classic or heritage-style homes. The Cambridge style offers a more subtle approach to color options with its fifteen unique options.


Both Dynasty and Cambridge shingles come in a 13 3/4″ x 40 7/8″ size with 33.3 sq. ft. of coverage per package of 20 shingles.



Manufactured to withstand winds of up to 130 mph, both the Dynasty and Cambridge lines of asphalt shingles are made to last. Each comes with Class A Fire Resistance Rating.


Depending on where your building is located, taking into account the harsh Maine winters, you can expect both the Cambridge and the Dynasty shingle to last 20+ years.  Horch Roofing has been installing the Cambridge shingle for over 15 years and the product still looks and performs like the day it was installed.


Both Dynasty and Cambridge shingles have a limited lifetime warranty.  What makes the IKO brand unique is their products come with a 15-year Iron Clad Protection Period, meaning that IKO stands by its products, as does Horch Roofing. For home and business owners in Midcoast Maine, this means protecting your roof with a longer-lasting, higher-performing roofing material that is designed to hold up through harsh coastal winters and seasonal storms.
