Malarkey hosted more than 50 contractors for a two-day training event in Olympia, Washington last week. The event, lead by our Northwest sales team, focused on new product details and innovations. The Malarkey technical services department from Portland, Oregon, also shared installation tips during demonstrations.
Malarkey Roofing has again achieved the Waste Diversion from Landfill certification in all three of our facilities by GreenCircle Certified. In 2016, we continued our strong commitment to sustainability, and remained focused to recertify. GreenCircle provides third-party certification of sustainability claims through a rigorous scientific evaluation based on internationally recognized standards and guidelines.
Malarkey Roofing Products recently worked with the Asphalt Roofing Manufacturers Association (ARMA) to complete Environmental Product Declarations (EPDs) focused on both steep and low slope roof systems. An EPD is a standardized way to help customers better understand the sustainable qualities of a product and its environmental impact over time. As one of several ARMA members, Malarkey contributed data for the industry studies.
Traditional underlayment is commonly referred to as felt or tar paper, and is made of paper saturated in asphalt. Malarkey’s new SecureStart™ Plus, however, is an advanced lightweight, synthetic underlayment for steep slope residential roofs. SecureStart™ Plus is comprised of five layers which provide secured redundancy and improved durability.
