Incorrectly driven nails represent the primary cause of improper shingle installation. In turn, poor shingle installation produces a flawed roofing project that diminishes the value of your home. Malarkey Roofing Products developed The Zone®, a 1¾" nailing area more than three times the size of traditional nailing areas. As a result, roofing contractors can now drive nails faster and more accurately, which leads to the completion of successful roof installation projects.
At Malarkey Roofing Products, we are connected with a long list of quality residential roofing contractors. Each month, we take a moment to recognize one of those partners, and this month we spotlight Rooftops Energy Solutions in Boise, Idaho.
