After one too many thunderstorms with hail and strong winds, a local homeowner decided his roof was in rough shape and called Tight Lid Roofing in Boise, Idaho. The result of a thorough, visual inspection of the property determined the roof was in fact, in dire need of replacing. The estimator went on to recommend the homeowner install Vista™ shingles from Malarkey, citing the product’s reputation for strength in harsh weather.
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.
Designer shingles, such as Malarkey’s Windsor® line, are produced for homeowners that are especially concerned with the roof’s appearance as well as a reliable asphalt shingle. The unique cut to the dimensional shingle creates an attractive, dramatic look, modeled after a traditional cedar shake roof.
There are a lot of great resources available to help present the Malarkey Roofing Products shingle line. In addition to the numerous digital resources about Malarkey Roofing Products within this website, we have recently designed residential roofing shingle brochures for the laminate and designer shingle lines. The printed brochure booklets are full of gorgeous, glossy images of stunning homes featuring Malarkey shingles. For contractors and distributors, these brochures are excellent pieces to share with homeowners and help them make informed choices for their roofing needs.
There are two sides to every story, the old saying goes, but for Loren Schneider, co-owner of James Roofing in Salem, Oregon, the story of roofing a recent geodesic home had more like 25 sides in total.
This tool is exceptionally valuable for homeowners considering a major change in roof style or trying to decide between two different shingle colors. The Malarkey Roof Designer provides engaging and easy-to-use options to upload a photo of a home or redesign a roof on model homes.
Carports shelter vehicles and offer protection for storage, so proper roofing materials should not be overlooked. While not as substantial as a free-standing garage, carports are often covered in roofing materials similar to the home. Not only will the materials protect the structure, they can unify the design of the whole property. It is important to consider the color and style of roofing on the carport as well.
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.
The conditions which call for roof repair can be both obvious and hidden. Some roof damage, like open holes where the home’s interior is visible, are easily noticed. Others, however, are less conspicuous, and require a study of roofing materials, system components, and roof features to determine the adequacy of a roof’s safety and security. For these reasons and others, working with a Certified Residential Contractor is advised.
Helping to ensure that a residential community looks its best, functions safely, and operates smoothly are all goals often at the core of many homeowner associations. Similarly, the characteristics best exemplified by Malarkey’s polymer modified asphalt roofing shingles are presentation, reliability, and durability. For individual homeowners seeking to improve the presentation of their property, upgrading their roofing materials to, designer, polymer modified asphalt roofing shingles can greatly increase curb appeal with added performance and peace of mind over time. For groups of homeowners, like those in homeowner or community associations, the same is true, but also includes a few additional benefits.
