Your roof protects your home, but what’s protecting your roof? Shingles are your roof’s first line of defense against the elements, which is why choosing high-quality shingles is one of the most important decisions you can make when installing a new roof. Malarkey shingles are your best bet for improving the lifespan and safety of your roof.
- Local & Family-Owned: Malarkey roofing products are manufactured and tested right here in Portland, and the company has been family-operated since 1956.
- Durability: Malarkey’s shingles are crafted with up to 50% more adhesive bonds and double the rain seals of standard shingles, providing added protection against Oregon’s harsh climate. Made of rubberized asphalt, they’re also less susceptible to tears than traditional shingles.
- Impact Resistance: Malarkey shingles have a Class 4 rating when it comes to impact resistance, which is the highest possible rating. This means they are among the most durable options on the market, according to a nationally-recognized, independent testing lab. Many insurance companies will even offer homeowners a discount if their roof uses Class 4 shingles.
- Ease of Installation: Wider than most industry standard shingles, Malarkey shingles have twice the nailing area, which makes them easier to install and less likely to blow away in high winds.
- Sustainability: Designed with the environment in mind, Malarkey shingles bring new life to upcycled rubber and plastic. As a result, each roof prevents roughly five tires and 3,200 plastic bags from entering our landfills. Their shingles are also topped with smog-reducing granules that help clean the air of emission-based pollutants.
- Algae Resistance: Most Malarkey shingles feature Scotchgard™ Protectors to prevent algae growth, which will help maintain the appearance of your roof. This can save you time and money when it comes to roof cleanings.
- Warranty: Malarkey stands behind its products with three levels of manufacturer’s warranties, bringing homeowners peace of mind. (Not to mention that Roof Life offers warranties of its own, providing you with extended coverage!)
- Style & Design: Added bonus – they also look great!
