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.

* Malarkey hip and ridge shingles (10", 12" RidgeFlex™ or 8", 10" EZ-Ridge™ with Scotchgard™ Protector from 3M) are recommended for all Malarkey field shingles but required with shingles having Scotchgard™ Protector to receive Malarkey’s 20-year Scotchgard™ Protector Warranty. Some contractors adapt 3-tab roofing shingles to use as hip and ridge shingles; The Alaskan® featuring Scotchgard™ can be substituted as hip and ridge shingles for both the Scotchgard™ Protector Warranty and the Algae Resistant System Warranty from Malarkey. 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 Limited Wind Warranty but are eligible for an Enhanced Wind Warranty when additional standards are met: Smart Start™ starter shingles are installed, shingles are 6-nailed (including starter shingles; 9 nails for Windsor® shingles), 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 toward the Enhanced Wind Warranty. Dura-Seal™ (Nexgen™) shingles used for hip and ridge will qualify toward an Enhanced Wind Warranty only when Dura-Seal™ (Nexgen™) is the field shingle. Malarkey performance-driven underlayments – Arctic Seal®, Right Start™ UDL, or SecureStart™ Plus – are recommended for added system protection.
