F-Wave Revia synthetic roofing shingles are patented, premium non-asphaltic shingles designed to be granule free with a single-piece construction. According to the manufacturer, the product is made from a proprietary blend of commercial-grade materials, offering high tear strength and UV resistance.
Revia shingles are durable and built to perform with a Class IV impact rating, 130-mph wind rating and Class A Fire Resistance. Easy to install and available in three classic profiles, Revia shingles are created with a colorization process designed to ensure beautiful curb appeal. Measuring 14 inches by 39 3/8 inches with a 6-inch exposure (60 shingles per square), it installs faster than traditional asphalt laminate shingles and synthetic roofing tiles.
Available in 8-inch and 12-inch square sizes to fit standard-sized holes left by box, slant-back and turbine static vents, Smart Plug also ensures roofing jobs will pass inspection requirements.
Smart Plug is available via Quarrix authorized wholesale distributors throughout the U.S., Canada and internationally, with all Quarrix products made in the USA. For more information, visit the Quarrix website or call (800) 438-2920 to locate the nearest dealer.
Dimensional Wood Shake Look
Premium roofing shingles are continuing to gain popularity with building owners and roofing professionals for many reasons, namely for their durability and affordability compared with traditional wood shakes.
Manufactured with color-blending technology, Armourshake shingles feature a dimensional profile with a contoured design. The Armourshake profile also rivals the look of hand-hewn, random-cut cedar shakes without the added upkeep and expense.
Also, with cedar and other woods used to construct natural wood shakes, the finished look may take a few years to fully develop. However, with Armourshake shingles, building owners can choose the weathered shake look they desire in one of five rich color blends, including Chalet Wood, Greystone, Shadow Black, Western Redwood and Weathered Stone.
The roofing shingles also offer weather resistance thanks to their construction.
Unlike real wood shakes that are flammable, Armourshake shingles have earned the Class A Fire Resistance rating tested against ASTM E108 (by FM). Plus, they resist the type of fading, warping and breakage that can occur over time with natural wood shake shingles.
Premium Accessories for a Finishing Touch
When installing the shingle, it is ideal to pair it with a ridge cap shingle to complete the look in both aesthetic and performance qualities.
An addition to the IKO PRO4 roofing component system, IKO’s Ultra HP High Profile Ridge Cap Shingles have been designed to complement the aesthetics and performance attributes of IKO’s premium shingle offerings, including IKO Armourshake, as well as IKO Crowne Slate and IKO Royal Estate shingles.

The Vista Algae Resistant (AR) shingle is comprised of specially formulated granules for increased security against algae growth. In environments where algae growth is prevalent, black streaks can stain a roof surface. The Vista additionally utilizes Nexgen, a polymer modified asphalt technology made from postconsumer materials. The polymer modified asphalt technology provides enhanced granule adhesion and weather protection. It is certified for Class 3 impact resistance which can withstand impacts from simulated hailstones over one inch in size.
