Laminated architectural shingles, also known as dimensional shingles, are manufactured with an enhanced profile to produce a three-dimensional appearance on the rooftop. These shingles complement a wide variety of home facades because of their depth and wide range of colors. To retain design continuity, homeowners turn to laminated architectural shingles to create a uniform appearance.
There is no denying what effect the passage of time will have on your home. Roof age can be apparent when unsightly black streaks caused by algae appear. Roof replacement is a considerable investment of time and money and Malarkey shingles featuring Scotchgard™ Protector can help prevent those black streaks and keep your roof looking beautiful longer.
Incorrectly driven nails represent the primary cause of improper shingle installation. In turn, poor shingle installation produces a flawed roofing project that diminishes the value of your home. Malarkey Roofing Products developed The Zone®, a 1¾" nailing area more than three times the size of traditional nailing areas. As a result, roofing contractors can now drive nails faster and more accurately, which leads to the completion of successful roof installation projects.
At Malarkey Roofing Products, we are connected with a long list of quality residential roofing contractors. Each month, we take a moment to recognize one of those partners, and this month we spotlight Rooftops Energy Solutions in Boise, Idaho.
Your roof is one of the most important parts of your home. It protects you and your assets from the elements and enhances your home’s curb appeal. When it comes time to repair or replace your roof, the installer is nearly as important as the product they install. Find the right contractor for your project with these four simple tips.
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.
At Malarkey, we want to provide you with a quality roof. To us, that means more than making great materials – it means connecting you with individuals who are able to install those products properly. We hope that learning a bit about the Malarkey Certified Contractor Program will help you plan your upcoming project with confidence.
