Standard roofing shingles are just that – standard. But they don’t have to be. You can make a shingle that performs better, protects longer, and is more sustainable. We know, because we do.
We rubberize the asphalt core of the shingle so that it performs more like vulcanized rubber than hard asphalt.
This process, which we invented, makes the shingle stronger, more durable, and more resistant to stress, breaking, cracking, granule loss, and hail damage.
We rubberize the adhesive used throughout the shingle too (laminate seals, wind seals, rain seals).
This process creates a stronger adhesive bond, that better resists dry-out, for extreme protection from shingle delamination, high winds, and leaks from wind-driven rain.
Granules are important. They add color and impact resistance to the shingle. They also serve as sunscreen, protecting the shingle from one of its biggest threats – UV aging. For granules, we’ve turned to the expertise of 3M for over 50 years.
Ceramic-coated for strength, and for lasting color vibrancy, 3M™ Roofing Granules top all Malarkey shingles.
Photocatalytic-coated granules harness sunlight to help clean the air of emission pollutants like smog.
Copper-coated granules help prevent the unsightly black streaks caused by algae growth.
We invented the larger nailing area. It takes over 7,000 nails to install a roof. Even one out of place can lead to leaks, shingle uplift, or blow-off.
A bigger nailing area improves installation speed & accuracy, and makes room for an extra rain seal – double that of standard shingles.
Malarkey shingles are made to last, of a cleaner technology, incorporating recycled tires and plastics, integrating smog-reducing granules, and accommodate solar panels.
Shingles made cleaner, greener, and to last longer.
