Colonial home styles originated with European colonists in North America during the 17th-century. Many of the structures were adapted however, to the new colony and climates across the country. These settlers built houses that reminded them of their native countries of England, Holland, France, and Spain.
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.
The Craftsman style became popular in the United States at during the first few decades of 20th century. The style’s namesake originated from home plans available in The Craftsman magazine, founded and edited by furniture-maker Gustav Stickley. Like the Arts and Crafts movement in the late 19th century, the Craftsman style sought a return to handmade, custom furnishings.
The design and performance details of building materials are critical to architects planning renovations and new construction. In fact, many home styles are constructed with roofing materials already in mind. As a manufacturer of premium roofing products, Malarkey has made a concerted effort to provide the most up-to-date and concise architectural information available online to our customers. The Architectural Resources page on our website features libraries of technical products documents and references to specification files available through partnering industry associations.
The ranch style is a uniquely American home design, introduced in the early 20th century. With Spanish colonial architecture serving as a foundation, variations of early and modern home designs are prevalent in the Southwestern United States and California. However, by mid-century, expansive suburban development quickly built a plethora of ranch homes across the nation.
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.
Malarkey utilizes specialized granules that perform beyond traditional materials to offer benefits to the homeowner and the environment. Streak Resist™ Technology is a blend of algae resistant copper granules that help maintain the aesthetic appearance of your roof, and may reduce the need to clean your roof. By resisting black streaks caused by algae, the shingles retain their vibrant hues in concert with the rest of the home’s exterior.
