CRRC Rated ProductSOLAR REFLECTANCE TECHNICAL DATA
Highlander® is listed with the Cool Roof Rating Council.
Highlander® has tested to these radiative property values:

Highlander Solar Reflective Index: Dove White: 28, Golden Amber: 22

 

Cool Roof Rating Council ratings are determined for a fixed set of conditions, and may not be appropriate for determining seasonal energy performance. The actual effect of solar reflectance and thermal emittance on building performance may vary.
Manufacturer of product stipulates that these ratings were determined in accordance with the applicable Cool Roof Rating Council procedures.


Resist Black Streaks

Helps maintain the aesthetic appearance of your roof. Includes a 10-year algae resistant warranty.

Algae growth on a roof can cause black streaks, which can alter the color of your roof and make it appear aged. Shingles with a blend of algae resistant granules help maintain the aesthetic appearance of your roof by resisting black streaks caused by algae, which may reduce the need to clean your roof. Highlander® AR shingles include a 10-year algae resistant warranty.

Retain Color Granules

Enhanced granule adhesion provides your roof lasting beauty and protection from damaging solar rays.

Throughout the day, roofs cycle through periods of hot and cold, causing materials to naturally expand and contract. Exceptional asphalt and quality control provides enhanced granule adhesion to hold granules onto the shingle. When granules stay on the roof, it provides lasting beauty and protection from damaging solar rays.

Formulated Roofing Sealants

Specially formulated asphalt sealants hold the shingle in place during high winds and rain sealants protect from wind driven rain.

Driving winds can threaten to lift shingles from your roof if they are not properly sealed. Malarkey uses a specially formulated SEBS polymer modified asphalt sealant to help hold the shingle in place during high winds. Malarkey architectural shingles also feature two lines of SEBS polymer modified asphalt rain sealant in the critical lamination area of the shingle for double protection against wind driven rain. SEBS asphalt rain sealant is engineered with adhesive properties to join the shingle together and cohesive properties to prevent it from separating. SEBS is also flexible down to 0˚F (-18˚C), ensuring the rain seal remains intact through freeze and thaw cycles.

The Zone®: Improve Fastener Placement

The Zone® nailing area dramatically improves correct fastener placement during installation.

One of the most critical aspects of a successful roofing project is correct installation. Improper fastener placement is the leading cause of incorrect shingle installation, which can subsequently void the warranty as well as lead to leaks or blow-offs. Malarkey architectural shingles are manufactured with The Zone® – a patented 1¾" nailing area over 3x larger than other laminate shingles that dramatically improves correct fastener placement.

Watch: The Zone Nailing Area.

Wind Warranties

110 mph (177 kph) Limited Wind Warranty included. Eligible for a 130 mph (209 kph) Enhanced Wind Warranty when conditions are met.

Highlander® shingles come with a 110 mph (177 kph) Limited Wind Warranty. Highlander® shingles are eligible for a 130 mph (209 kph) Enhanced Wind Warranty when Smart Start™ starter shingles are installed, shingles are 6-nailed, and either EZ-Ridge™ (8", 10") or RidgeFlex™ (10", 12") hip and ridge shingles are used. Malarkey performance-driven underlayments – Arctic Seal®, Right Start™ UDL, or SecureStart™ – are recommended for added system protection.

Reflect Damaging Solar Rays

Highlander® Dove White and Golden Amber shingles reflect solar rays which may reduce the heat entering your home and extend the life of your roof.

CRRC Rated ProductENERGY STARWhen solar energy hits a roof surface and is absorbed, it raises the temperature of the shingles. This can lead to additional heat entering a home through the roof and premature aging of asphalt shingles. Dove White and Golden Amber shingle colors reflect solar rays, which may reduce the amount of heat entering your home and can potentially extend the life of your roof in hot climates.

These shingles meet the required reflectance to be designated with industry leading energy conservation standards, including Cool Roof Rating Council listing and California Energy Code, Title 24, Part 6 compliance. Dove White is designated with ENERGY STAR◊.

The Alaskan® featuring Scotchgard™ can be substituted as hip and ridge shingles, in conjunction with algae resistant shingles, to receive the full 10-year Algae Resistant System warranty. The use of Dura-Seal™ AR as hip and ridge shingles is only allowed when Dura-Seal™ AR is the field shingle.
** Shingles come with a 110 mph (177 kph) Limited Wind Warranty. Eligible for a 130 mph (209 kph) Enhanced Wind Warranty when Smart Start™ starter shingles are installed, shingles are 6-nailed, and either EZ-Ridge™ (8", 10") or RidgeFlex™ (10", 12") hip and ridge shingles are used. Some contractors adapt roofing shingles to use as hip and ridge shingles. Use of The Alaskan® as a hip and ridge shingle will apply towards the Enhanced Wind Warranty. Dura-Seal™ shingles used for hip and ridge will not qualify toward an Enhanced Wind Warranty. Malarkey performance-driven underlayments – Arctic Seal®, Right Start™ UDL, or SecureStart™ – are recommended for added system protection.
