Early fall is a perfect time to take care of roof maintenance for homeowners and landlords. The due diligence of checking for roof issues will bring peace of mind for property owners who need their rental units to perform as expected. Preventative roof maintenance also makes sure roofs are watertight and ready for wintry weather before the first storms of the season roll in.
Using our smog-reducing roofing shingles, California roofing contractor Premo Roofing Company was recently awarded by the Monterey Bay Air Resources District for their leadership in local air quality improvement.

As a roofing products manufacturer for the last 60 years, we know the right roofing shingle is the one that makes the homeowner happiest and helps unify the exterior design and paint of their home. To us, this means they can rely on Malarkey to provide a durable, performance-driven roofing shingle that is sustainably designed and manufactured. Besides color, what separates one shingle from another depends on several factors in the shingle’s construction and how it performs in various regions and climates.
At Malarkey Roofing Products®, our year begins with a sprint out of the gate, attending numerous tradeshows in January and February. We then have a very busy spring, touring North America and sharing exciting product updates before the season really gets underway for roofing contractors. The response from attendees has been so good, in fact, we’ve decided to extend the NEX® road show calendar with events in Colorado, Texas, and Indiana.
Malarkey Roofing Products honors Earth Day, every day at all of our facilities, and we encourage our business partners to act sustainably as well. As a family company based in Oregon, we are especially focused on maintaining the quality of our business and environment for future generations. Over our six decades, we have continually sought to improve product performance and service life, while limiting impact on the environment. While we have always been focused on building a build a better roofing shingle, we also created innovative ways to do so more sustainably. Today, the key ingredient, the ‘super glue’ used in all of our roofing shingles is NEX™ polymer modified asphalt – made with polymers from upcycled materials. This is just one of the many ways we honor Earth Day, every day at Malarkey Roofing Products.
