Our guiding principle is simple - make the shingles we want on our own homes.

Family Business Since 1956

Founded in 1956, Malarkey Roofing Products is a family-owned, US manufacturer of residential and commercial roofing products, with production facilities in Oregon, California, and Oklahoma.

 

A little more thought, a little more effort, a little more care. If there’s a better, more sustainable way to make a shingle, we intend to find it.

Building Better Shingles

Gregory Malarkey, President

“Here at Malarkey we operate under a simple guiding principle – build the shingles we want on our own homes – made better to last longer, and more sustainable. It’s a formula that works for us… but not without you.

 

So, thank you to our distributors, contractors, and partners who support our mission and products. And most importantly, thank you the homeowner. Without your desire for high quality, sustainable roofing, none of this happens.”

What Makes a Malarkey Shingle

Asphalt Weathering, Rubber Resilience, Plastic Strength

Standard shingles are made of hard, dried-out asphalt. They’re brittle, and under stress, prematurely age and crack. It’s why we pioneered rubberized asphalt in shingles.

 

Combining high-grade asphalt with virgin rubber polymers (SBS), as well as recycled rubber and plastic polymers, our proprietary NEX® Polymer Modified (Rubberized) Asphalt technology chemically rubberizes the asphalt core of the shingle for superior all-weather resilience, longer product life, and reduced environmental impact, while smog-reducing granules help clean the air of emission pollutants.

 

Made better to last longer, and more sustainable. That’s a Malarkey shingle.
