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.
Think it’s been hot up on the roof this summer? Well, you’re not alone. It is hotter this summer. Already this season, all-time heat records have been set all over the world. According to recent reports, “Overall, 2018 is on track to be the fourth warmest year on record after 2016, 2017, and 2015,” So yeah, roofing this summer will be warm, but thankfully, there’s something we can do about it, and that’s where cool roofing provides a valuable solution.
Now fortified with Nexgen™ polymer modified asphalt and solar reflective granules, the Ecoasis™ Costa architectural roofing shingle line is a leading example of sustainable, reliable, and modern roofing technology.
With three low-slope commercial warehouse buildings to roof in the Castaic, California, Pomona-based Howard Roofing Company, Inc. worked with Malarkey Roofing Products for the right roofing materials for the job. Situated in sunny Southern California, just outside of downtown Los Angeles, this project became a prime candidate for Malarkey’s new 524G RCap™ Plus reflective granulated cap sheet.
In bright, sunny climates, homeowners have been previously limited to clay tiled home designs or white coatings applied to asphalt shingles to combat the sun’s rays. Today, with the assistance of modern asphalt innovations, Malarkey can utilize specially engineered roofing granules for solar reflectivity to offer a wide variety of roofing shingle color options to match the home and help keep it cool.
Black and grey shingles are two of the most popular colors for roofs. Both colors can add depth and interest to your home. Available in a variety of shades and tones, black and grey shingles can match an array of siding, trim, brick, and stone; making them the ideal choices for many homes.
The product design process at Malarkey Roofing Products considers many aspects of a product’s performance, construction, life cycle, and components. Granules are an integral part of a roofing shingle. Not only does their asphalt adhesion help keep shingle colors vibrant, but granules can also be engineered to perform and protect in certain climates.
Malarkey Roofing Products® manufacture more than just shingles; we also have an extensive commercial and low slope product line. In fact, for nearly forty years, Malarkey has been the leader in the SBS polymer modified roofing industry with an array of base, ply, and cap sheets that perform in a wide variety of climates. The 524G RCap™ Plus cap sheet is the newest addition to the Malarkey catalog of low slope products.
Your roof covers a large portion of your home’s exterior and it plays a big role in your property’s curb appeal. While it’s important to choose a roofing material that is going to stand up to your home or business’ needs long term, it’s also important to select a shingle color that is going to complement the rest of your home’s exterior. There are many ways that you can find the perfect shingle color to match your project’s needs.
In 2015, LA became the first major city to mandate cool roofs for new residential construction projects in response to the heat island effect. To learn more about the cool roof ordinance, its reach and impact, we spoke with the Los Angeles Department of Building Safety Division Chief, Osama Younan.
