In collaboration with 3M, Malarkey Roofing Products® is excited to announce the inclusion of 3M™ Smog-reducing granules to our roofing shingle lines. What began with a vision and curiosity from our executive offices and research department has expanded into an opportunity for tangible positive change. These roofing products, designed to mitigate the nitrogen oxides found in smog, are more important than ever before.
Between our customer service department and conversations with roofing contractors, we listen to a lot of concerns that homeowners have about their roofs. In this post, we will share five of the most common inquiries that we receive. In response, we have provided a short answer (for expediency) and a long answer (because roofing can often be more complicated than it seems).
Contrary to previous trends, millennials (otherwise known as the generation of those born between 1981 and 1997) are beginning to buy homes, and in a much different fashion than generations before. Accordingly, their expectations for roofing and home improvement products are also unique. Malarkey Roofing Products®, sensitive to these trends, manufactures sustainably designed products to meet the demands of new homeowners and an increasingly populated planet.
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.
Malarkey Roofing Products® is dedicated to sustainability. For us, this means keeping roofing materials out of the waste stream and preserving the quality of life on our planet. Likewise, we aim to elevate and partner with like-minded roofing contractors to promote this value. For outstanding contributions in sustainability within the roofing industry Malarkey Certified Residential Contractors are eligible for the Envirogen™ Contractor Award.
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.
Malarkey Roofing Products is deferring waste from entering landfills by reducing our need for new synthetic materials. With our Nexgen™ polymer modified asphalt, the next generation of asphalt shingle technology, specific polymers are included to enhance performance characteristics of the shingle, sourced from recycled materials. The environmental results are significant.
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.
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.
