Modern Roof prides itself in being different, in being better, in being easier.
Modern Roof teamed up with Malarkey Roofing (www.malarkeyroofing.com
) who has led the development of polymer modified rubber shingles. They're made with recycled tires and plastic bags. We think they are the best shingle on the market because they stay pliable and not dry out and crack like other asphalt shingles.
They are either Class 3 or Class 4 depending on the series, which is based on an impact test...think "hail resistant". Plus they all have a wind warranty.
Malarkey shingles retain their granules better than most other asphalt shingles. Granules are meant to stay on the shingle, not in your gutter.
It gets better. They have a larger nailing strip so it's more likely to get all the nails where they're supposed to be.
They have copper granules in the shingle that prevent those black streaks you see on so many roofs caused by algae on the roof. They even have 3M Smog reducing granules in the shingle.
