Within the residential roofing industry, there are dozens of material suppliers. Everything from shingles and flashing to fasteners and adhesives can be purchased from any of these manufacturers. This can make it difficult to know which roofing products supplier provides the highest quality product at a fair cost.
Malarkey Roofing Products—a Portland-based supplier of high-quality roofing materials—stands out among the competition as a distributor with an impressive pedigree. This is one of the ‘heavy hitters’ in roofing, a company that has been around for a long time and that has a broad suite of products to suit any residential roofing application.
So, it should come as no surprise that, here at A-to-Z Roofing and Exteriors, we wanted to find a way to develop a long-standing, professional business relationship with Malarkey. After all, if we could bring our roofing customers top-tier, industry-proven shingles they knew were top-of-the-line, we would be securing our worth as a best-of-breed installer at the same time.
We knew it would be a win-win for both our companies, which is why, in 2016, A-to-Z Roofing and Exteriors became a Malarkey Roofing Products Certified Installer. We’ve maintained good standing with Malarkey ever since, and our successful residential roofing projects are a testament to the durability and sustainability of Malarkey’s products.
The Best in Residential Roofing
We chose to partner with Malarkey Roofing Products for three main reasons:
- Broad product offering. Every residential roofing project is different. As such, there is no single color, shingle style, or configuration that is going to be suitable for every home. That’s why it’s key to have a wide variety of color selections to choose from, in addition to multiple shingle options to add dimension, depth, and other aesthetic features to the roof.
Malarkey Roofing Products offers Designer Shingles, Laminated Architectural Shingles, and 3-Tab Shingles, each with their own advantages for the overall roof system. When we show our customers how many shingle options they are with Malarkey, they love being able to zero in on just the right selection for them. It actually makes the roof design process a ton of fun.
- Malarkey Roofing Products is committed to our environment. There’s a right way to manufacture roofing products, and there’s the wrong way. Malarkey does things the right way by prioritizing Mother Nature over profits.
How? First of all, Malarkey has worked closely with the Asphalt Roofing Manufacturers Association (ARMA) to develop manufacturing best-practices that result in a finished product that is less harmful to the environment than traditional shingles.
Second of all, the entire family of shingles from Malarkey Roofing Products takes advantage of ‘upcycled’ materials reclaimed from discarded raw materials like automotive tires.
Because Malarkey is so motivated by sustainability, we’re that much prouder of our supplier certification from them.
- Their pricing is right on the mark. Malarkey could provide the best shingles ever, but they wouldn’t be used in roofing if they were too expensive to procure. Over the years, Malarkey has developed a supply chain that is the very picture of efficiency and smart material sourcing.
Working with vendors who can provide reliable, environmentally friendly, and cost-competitive raw materials, Malarkey has been able to pass those savings onto us—and therefore, you—year after year.
With as much as there is to love about Malarkey Roofing Products, there’s even more to love about our residential installer certification.
