Extreme Weather Protection
The Windsor provides a durable barrier against extreme weather, receiving the UL 2218 Class 4 Impact Resistance classification, the highest rating possible. In a Class 4 rating test, the Windsor withstood a simulation of hailstones impacting a roof at 90 mph (144 kph) without sustaining damage.
Superior Granular Embedment
Malarkey’s quality control combined with exceptional materials ensures superior granule adhesion and durability to protect your investment.
Flexor SBS Polymer Modified Asphalt Technology
Flexor SBS polymer modified asphalt technology increases the weatherability of shingles through superior granule adhesion and all-weather flexibility. Malarkey blends their Flexor SBS polymer modified asphalt at each of their facilities to maintain and control high quality standards.
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.
Flexor SBS polymer modified asphalt technology ensures that shingles are flexible in temperatures down to 0F (-18C), which is 40 degrees lower than the typical installation of standard asphalt. This cold weather flexibility allows the shingle to be installed in colder temperatures than standard oxidized asphalt shingles without damage to the shingle. Flexor allows the shingle to conform to a variety of roof structures, withstand extreme weather cycles, and be installed in a wider range of climates.
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>

THE BENEFITS OF HAVING LEGACY SHINGLES
Homeowners in Wisconsin are often asked about the benefits of installing a roof over their home that has been manufactured with shingles. In addition to improving the aesthetic appeal, many experts point out that these durable roofing materials can be extremely useful in terms of long-term roofing performance.
Legacy slates and shingles provide excellent resistance to fire damage. These materials are also better at resisting heat than clay tiles or asphalt shingles. And, of course, they are much easier to repair when they become damaged.
It’s also important to point out the benefits of having traditional shingles. This type of material is less expensive than other types of asphalt roofing products. It is also considered to be a more stable product that is better for the environment.
Many homeowners who choose to install their homes with this material also point out that they have extra curb appeal because of their appearance and durability. Also, a traditional roof can save a homeowner a great deal of money over time. With fewer repairs necessary over time, this can really add up.
When it comes to the pros of having legacy shingles roofs, there are a few things to consider before making a purchase. First, this type of roof doesn’t offer a lot of flexibility when it comes to color choices. Shingles typically come in a standard white finish, although some manufacturers allow homeowners to customize the color of their roofs with pigments that are supplied by them.
This can be an attractive choice that give a home added character, but it does limit the homeowner’s color options.
Architecturally, it is harder to achieve an authentic look with asphalt shingles than it is with shingle roofs. These Legacy shingles are typically manufactured with rigid fiberglass. While this makes for a durable roof, it also means that the roof will not shake as easily as other types of shingles would.
Because of this, there are not a lot of architectural advantages to installing asphalt shingles, so they are not usually a good choice for people who are planning to design a new home.
One of the biggest disadvantages of having this type of roof is that they can be difficult to install. This is especially true if a homeowner is attempting to install this type of roof on an older home.
Even though modern asphalt shingles are made to be much stronger and more durable than their older counterparts, they still pose a challenge to install. Asphalt shingles do not hold up well to being walked on, and homeowners may need to call on a professional to complete the installation of their roof.
There are certainly many benefits of having this type of roof over asphalt shingles, but they also have some disadvantages as well. Asphalt shingles have been used for decades, and they are the preferred roofing material due to their strength and durability. They are also much more affordable than other options.
It is also important to make sure that one’s home is following the requirements of the United States Department of Energy. By doing so, they will have a healthier home that will cost them less overall.
