Malarkey Roofing Products®, as part of the Asphalt Roofing Manufacturers Association (ARMA), holds an annual contest for industry professionals who install low and steep slope asphalt roofing in beautiful, creative, and impressive ways. Celebrating the craftsmanship involved in such installations, these award-winning projects illustrate the beauty, affordability, and reliability of residential and commercial asphalt roofing systems.
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.
The reinvigorated Excellence in Asphalt Roofing Awards Program (formerly known as the QARC awards) seeks to recognize industry professionals who use asphalt roofing for both steep and low slope in beautiful, creative and impressive applications. Be sure to submit your project today. The submission deadline December 31, 2018.
In collaboration with 3M, Malarkey Roofing Products® is excited to announce the inclusion of 3M™ Smog-reducing granules to our roofing shingle lines. What began with a vision and curiosity from our executive offices and research department has expanded into an opportunity for tangible positive change. These roofing products, designed to mitigate the nitrogen oxides found in smog, are more important than ever before.
Highlander® NEX™ is specifically designed for warmer, dry climates. Produced at our facility in Southern California, Highlander® NEX™ is fortified with sustainable Nexgen™ polymer modified asphalt technology for enhanced granule adhesion and UV resistance. These shingles will be initially available to all areas serviced by our South Gate facility.
Malarkey Roofing Products® manufactures building products to perform against the demands of severe weather events and ensure peace of mind. To accomplish this task, we develop innovative solutions to the problems of poor shingle performance in the face of severe weather. With partners such as 3M, who provide our roofing granules and produced a comprehensive Natural Disaster Hazard Assessment Guide, we aim to deliver dependable roofing products to our customers.
Since 2010, the West Coast region of the United Union of Roofers, Waterproofers and Allied Workers has held an annual competition for apprentices. This year, representatives from the Malarkey Technical Services team served as judges in the event earlier this month in Pomona, CA. Malarkey also supplied 3-tab and laminate shingles for the steep slope roofing competition.
National Roofing Week, led by the National Roofing Contractors Association, is designed to “increase awareness across the U.S. about the significance of roofs to every home and business and share the good deeds of the industry. The week also promotes the importance of hiring a professional roofing contractor and making informed decisions about maintaining or replacing any roof system.” This year, Malarkey has taken upon an elevated role as a Partner Member of the NRCA's One Voice Initiative to promote our shared cause.
Malarkey Roofing Products® is dedicated to sustainability. For us, this means keeping roofing materials out of the waste stream and preserving the quality of life on our planet. Likewise, we aim to elevate and partner with like-minded roofing contractors to promote this value. For outstanding contributions in sustainability within the roofing industry Malarkey Certified Residential Contractors are eligible for the Envirogen™ Contractor Award.
To celebrate the fifth anniversary of the Roofing Games™ at the Western States Roofing Contractors Association’s (WRSCA) Western Roofing Expo, Malarkey is bringing back former champions to deliver the most competitive event yet!
