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>

BENEFITS OF INSTALLING NORTHWEST SHINGLES AT HOME
There are many advantages to installing the new lightweight, durable roof materials known as Northwest shingles. As a result of their unique construction, these roofs are the best choice for those looking to enhance the value and overall appearance of their home. Here is a closer look at the benefits of the new materials.
When compared to asphalt shingles, the aluminum ones are much stronger. With this strength, the edges are often diamond formed, which reduces the probability of any breakage. The additional durability also means that they will stand up better to harsher weather conditions such as snow and extreme cold, which can be common in many areas of the country.
In addition to the strength, the panels are also designed with a double-glass effect. This provides greater energy efficiency when compared to single ply roofing systems. When it comes to insulation, they are more than three times more efficient than asphalt shingles. With the combination of all of these advantages, homes with these types of walls will typically see a 25% decrease in their heating and cooling costs over the life of the roof.
Another advantage is that they can easily be installed on a slope. Most homeowners who prefer the easy, do-it-yourself approach will choose to have the panels pre-installed.
However, others may opt to hire a contractor to install the panels and ensure that they are professionally installed on the roof. For those who are not comfortable installing on their own, there are several contractors in the region that specialize in installing the aluminum or wicker shingles, ensuring that the job is done right the first time.
Not only are these types of roofs easy to install, but they come in a wide range of colors. Whether you prefer earth-tone colors or more traditional hues, you can find a design that will enhance your home. They are also available in designs that will allow you to install them without having to extend the roof to the eaves, which will reduce the amount of time needed to repair damage. In addition, many of the newer types are manufactured to require far less maintenance than the older versions. This will help you to enjoy savings in the future.
The benefits of northwest shingles do not end there. Over time, they will continue to serve you well, saving you money, protecting the environment, and providing you with a beautiful outdoor space to enjoy. While you will still need to keep up maintenance on them, you will find that they are easier and less expensive than most alternatives.
