A recent construction project in Portland, Oregon has expanded the conventional application of our shingles with dramatic results.

For more than six decades, the Tilsen Roofing Company of Madison, Wisconsin has maintained its reputation for quality and professionalism by strategically adopting the industry’s latest product innovations.

In 1997, Malarkey Roofing Products introduced the Legacy® architectural shingle line with industry-leading SBS polymer modified asphalt. Over the past two decades, the shingle line’s technology continues to improve, while remaining a reliable roofing choice. Today, the Legacy® architectural shingle line is fortified with durable Flexor™ polymer modified asphalt that promotes superior granule adhesion and extreme weather protection, including Class 4 impact resistance. This product line also includes the optional Scotchgard™ Protector from 3M for added protection against black streaks caused by algae.
In many planned communities like Battlecreek Commons, homeowner associations or property management firms make decisions that impact the shared property in the community.

Earlier this spring, we invited roofing contractors to tag us on their new and reroof projects with Malarkey shingles through social media with the hashtag #RoofingExcellence. The response, thus far, has delivered some remarkable results from around the country. One trend is that our Vista shingle line is especially popular this season.
One of the most common designs for asphalt roofing shingles has been the three-tab shingle; but architectural shingles are a reliable alternative. The three tab is commonly a flat, single-layer shingle.
