HIGHLANDER SHINGLES: FEATURES & DETAILS
Highlander is a laminate shingle line designed to give a dimensional appearance on the roof. This product line includes different optional levels of security against algae staining.
Regions that are prone to algae growth should inquire about our Windsor shingles featuring the Scotchgard protection from 3M. The Windsor shingles featuring the 20 year Scotchgard Algae Resistant Roofing System warranty from 3M are equipped with the most effective solution available against algae staining.
Algae growth can cause black stains, which can alter the color of your roof and make it appear aged. Highlander AR shingles help to keep your roof looking cleaner for longer and includes a 10-year warranty.
Superior Granular Embedment
Malarkey’s quality control combined with exceptional materials ensures superior granule adhesion and durability to protect your investment.
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 and can subsequently void the warranty. Malarkey laminate shingles are manufactured with The Zone patented nailing area, which is over three times larger than other laminate shingles and dramatically improves correct fastener placement.
Double Rain Seal Protection
A rain seal helps hold shingles in place during high winds and protects against wind-blown rain entering beneath the shingles. Malarkey laminate shingles are manufactured with an extra line of defense in the critical area for laminated shingles, with double SEBS asphalt rain seals. Malarkey’s SEBS asphalt has adhesive properties to join the shingle together and cohesive properties to prevent it from separating. SEBS is also flexible down to 0F (-18C), ensuring the rain seal remains intact through freeze and thaw cycles.p>
Solar Reflective Shingles
Dove White shingles reflect solar rays, which may reduce the amount of heat entering your home and can result in lower attic temperatures compared to standard shingle colors.

THE BENEFITS OF HIGHLANDER SHINGLES ROOFS IN WISCONSIN
Benefits of highlander shingles have been around for quite some time. These types of shingles are often called barn shingles or gambrel roofs because of their characteristic look. This design style first became popular in the United States during the late 19th century.
The primary advantages of highlander shingles are that they provide a roofing structure with more durability and strength than traditional wood shakes. They also provide better resistance to fire damage, which is not common with wood shakes.
This allows homes with a barn-style design style to be built much faster than those without. These types of homes are also more resistant to wind damage compared to homes with other types of roofing. This is because highlander shingles are typically used in areas that receive a lot of wind.
Highlander shingles are also preferred for their appearance as well as their durability. It is common to have homes with this type of roof installed in the Western United States.
Many people like the look of these types of shingles because they are a distinctive and attractive addition to any home. It is easy to install these types of shingles on your own compared to other types of shingles options. You may even be able to purchase kits that will allow you to easily install these types of highlander shingles on your own.
Another advantage that highlander shingles have is that they offer a wide range of design options. As mentioned above, many people like to use them to roof their cars and homes. There are many designs available for this type of shingle, such as different colors, and patterns as well as different textures.
These tiles are available in almost any color or pattern that you can imagine, so you will be sure to find a design that will go well with the exterior look of your home. In addition to the many different design options, highlander shingles are also extremely durable, and they will last for many years to come.
These are just a few of the benefits of highlander shingles roofs. There are many more advantages of installing these tiles over asphalt shingles, and you will be surprised at just how great they can look. If you want to go with something a little more traditional, you can choose to install slate shingles instead of the highlander shingles.
However, with all the choices that are available, there is no reason not to choose this style of roof for your home. It will add style and class to your home without costing you an arm and a leg.
