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.
The barrel roof and tower of Santa Sophia Catholic Church are icons of the Casa de Oro skyline in Spring Valley, California, just East of San Diego. After decades of baking under the golden sun however, the 130-square roof required replacement. Local roofing contractor, Commercial and Industrial Roofing stepped up to install the Windsor® polymer modified shingle atop the iconic church.
When contracted to replace the 135 square roof of a palatial home in Oconomowoc, Wisconsin, Malarkey Certified Contractor, Brookens Construction, chose the distinctive Windsor® shingle to complement the grandeur of the property.
Thanks to the professional expertise and hard work of Paul Aragon and his crew at Jireh 7 Enterprises, Malarkey Roofing Products received an honorable mention in the 2017 Asphalt Roofing Manufacturers Association (ARMA) annual Quality Asphalt Roofing Case Study (QARC) awards.
Designer shingles, such as Malarkey’s Windsor® line, are produced for homeowners that are especially concerned with the roof’s appearance as well as a reliable asphalt shingle. The unique cut to the dimensional shingle creates an attractive, dramatic look, modeled after a traditional cedar shake roof.
Helping to ensure that a residential community looks its best, functions safely, and operates smoothly are all goals often at the core of many homeowner associations. Similarly, the characteristics best exemplified by Malarkey’s polymer modified asphalt roofing shingles are presentation, reliability, and durability. For individual homeowners seeking to improve the presentation of their property, upgrading their roofing materials to, designer, polymer modified asphalt roofing shingles can greatly increase curb appeal with added performance and peace of mind over time. For groups of homeowners, like those in homeowner or community associations, the same is true, but also includes a few additional benefits.
