7 Reasons Rubberized Shingles Are Superior

Mar 15, 2022Construction, Education, Planning, Product, Sustainability

We use Malarkey Roofing Products because they outperform all others in granule adhesion & reduce our footprint on the planet.

1. Better Performance

All other standard pre-oxidized asphalt shingles are brittle, crack, and lose granules – with a shorter life span regardless of the warranty documents.

2. All-Weather Resilience

Malarkey shingles are Rubberized Asphalt with superior thermocycling. This means there is all-weather resilience in hot or cold temperatures.

3. Eco-Friendly

The materials used are upcycled rubber & plastics which reduce landfill waste and include smog-reducing granules that help clean air, turning smog particulates into water-soluble ions that wash off your roof.

4. Impact Protection

This technology provides industry-leading impact protection from hail and debris. It also creates more resilient, flexible shingles that better withstand temperature swings and weather extremes for easy application and resilience.

5. Smog Reduction

These specialized granules reduce smog, turning smog particles into water-soluble ions, washing pollution off your roof.

6. Easy Installation & Better Seal

The Zone™ wide nailing area helps ensure shingles are properly fastened and effectively shed water. Six bonds of proprietary synthetic rubber adhesive (SEBS) seal shingles and block out water and wind-driven rain.

7. Options, Options, Options

    • Malarkey has a broad spectrum of products up to class 4 impact-resistant shingles. All of their products are produced with SBS Modified Polymer and have superior impact resistance and longevity built-in.
    • Most insurance companies also offer discounts on your homeowner’s insurance premium when you have a class 4 rating.
