Family Business, Industry Leader Since 1956

At Malarkey, we’re a family business, started in Oregon over 65 years ago. Our guiding principle is simple – build the shingles we want on our own homes – made better to last longer, and with less environmental impact.

01

Craftsmanship

Malarkey shingles are engineered with extra adhesive bonds for added protection against wind, rain, and delamination, and a larger nailing area to improve installation speed, ease, and accuracy.
