As a roofing products manufacturer for the last 60 years, we know the right roofing shingle is the one that makes the homeowner happiest and helps unify the exterior design and paint of their home. To us, this means they can rely on Malarkey to provide a durable, performance-driven roofing shingle that is sustainably designed and manufactured. Besides color, what separates one shingle from another depends on several factors in the shingle’s construction and how it performs in various regions and climates.
At Malarkey Roofing Products®, our year begins with a sprint out of the gate, attending numerous tradeshows in January and February. We then have a very busy spring, touring North America and sharing exciting product updates before the season really gets underway for roofing contractors. The response from attendees has been so good, in fact, we’ve decided to extend the NEX® road show calendar with events in Colorado, Texas, and Indiana.
Malarkey Roofing Products honors Earth Day, every day at all of our facilities, and we encourage our business partners to act sustainably as well. As a family company based in Oregon, we are especially focused on maintaining the quality of our business and environment for future generations. Over our six decades, we have continually sought to improve product performance and service life, while limiting impact on the environment. While we have always been focused on building a build a better roofing shingle, we also created innovative ways to do so more sustainably. Today, the key ingredient, the ‘super glue’ used in all of our roofing shingles is NEX™ polymer modified asphalt – made with polymers from upcycled materials. This is just one of the many ways we honor Earth Day, every day at Malarkey Roofing Products.

These roofing products, designed to mitigate the nitrogen oxides found in smog, are more important than ever before.

Home to over 12,000 students, the South Dakota State University campus in Brookings (Go Jackrabbits!) has 168 buildings, including two halls listed on the National Register of Historic Places. “The buildings have been on campus for over 100 years,” said Malarkey South Dakota Sales Rep, Mark Hausman. The roofs were specified by the university for 170 squares of Malarkey’s durable Windsor® XL polymer modified asphalt roofing shingle. “These are only the second roofs ever put on the two buildings” added Hausman.
