In April of 1994, Malarkey Roofing Products was the first roofing manufacturer in the world to be a Certified Manufacturer of shingles with the 3M Algae BlockTM System, meeting 3M’s rigorous certification standards.
Malarkey believes in providing value to their customers and has done so with Scotchgard Protection longer than any other roofing manufacturer in the industry.
Algae thrive in humid or wet environments and the unattractive staining on roofs is caused from algae cells that have built up over time. Malarkey Roofing Products is proud to feature ScotchgardTM Algae Resistant Roofing from 3M, which offers up to 20 years of superior protection against unsightly algae. Your home is your most valuable possession, and with the cost of roofing today, adding the ScotchgardTM Protection is very inexpensive and saves you from endless maintenance costs associated with algae.
Your roof makes up a large majority of your home’s curb appeal, so why settle for allowing your roof to appear old and unattractive just three to five years after installation? Keep your roof looking like the day it was installed 20 years later with the ScotchgardTM Algae Resistant Roofing System from 3M.
Malarkey Roofing Products use ScotchgardTM Algae Resistant granules from 3M, which are copper-fortified to prevent algae growth. Malarkey granules start with a roofing granule coated with copper. The copper materials are then coated with Advanced Ceramic Coating Technology which allows the Copper Coating to slowly leach through the Ceramic Coating over a period of 20 years. This extends the length of algae protection.
ScotchgardTM Algae Resistance from 3M Roofing Granules protect roofs in even the harshest algae problem areas making it easy to choose the right type of shingle for your home.
A roof is a dramatic part of your home and unpleasant algae staining can ruin the aesthetic and reduce the value. Choose Malarkey shingles with ScotchgardTM to protect your investment with the longest algae resistant warranty on the market.
The ScotchgardTM Algae Resistant Roofing System from 3M initially costs more than non-algae resistant shingles. However, compared to the long term accumulated costs of frequent roof cleanings and the risk of injury from cleaning your own roof, the ScotchgardTM Protection is an economical investment for the longevity of your roof.
Removing unsightly algae with high-pressure washing can damage your roof by removing roofing granules. Granules provide protection to your roof and granule loss can reduce the durability. Not cleaning the algae can reduce the resale value of your home. Up to 40 % of consumer perception of curb appeal is based on the appearance of your roof.
Investing in a new roof is a considerable expenditure. Ensure that the roof you install today will maintain its lasting beauty algae free for up to 20 years with Malarkey Roofing Products featuring the ScotchgardTM Algae Resistant Roofing from 3M.
