Malarkey Roofing Products

Pacific West Roofing only works with the best. That’s one of the reasons we partner with Malarkey Roofing. They’re an industry-leading manufacturer. They’re also at the forefront of a couple of innovative and environmentally sound processes. We’d like to tell you about them.

Malarkey Roofing is a premier manufacturer of building materials. They produce dynamic, sustainable, and durable products for commercial, industrial, institutional, and residential clients and their sites.

For years — since 1956, in fact — Malarkey Roofing has developed innovative building products while adhering to the vision of their founder, Herbert Malarkey.

Mr. Malarkey “had a clear understanding of the value of fair and honest dealings with employees, vendors, customers and the communities in which we operate,” the company writes.

At Pacific West Roofing, we’re thrilled by and proud of our work with Malarkey Roofing Products. Their commitment to sustainability mirrors our own, and we’re happy to continue building our own company with the quality and values that Americans demand.
3M Smog-Eating Granules
One of many reasons were so excited by the work we do with Malarkey: Their roofing shingles include 3M Smog-reducing Granules. This is truly science fiction turned into science fact.

How do they work? For that answer, let’s turn to 3M.

“3M’s roofing granules are designed with a specialized photocatalytic coating applied to the base mineral,” 3M writes. “The specialized coating on the granule is activated by the sun’s UV rays, while blending inconspicuously into various shingle color combinations. As sunlight hits the shingles containing the smog-reducing granules, radicals are generated and transform nitrogen oxide gases into water-soluble ions improving air quality. This smart solution for pollution mitigation can help communities contribute toward their NOx emission reduction efforts.”

Sounds too good to be true, but it’s not! Contact Pacific West Roofing today to get the full lowdown on this extraordinary breakthrough in roofing systems, Malarkey shingles, and environmental science.

Upcycling
Another innovation that our partnership with Malarkey brings to our Portland roofing community: upcycling!

What does that mean? It means, for example, that used tires and post-consumer hard plastics can be incorporated and engineered into roof shingles.

Think about it!

“Automobile tires are highly engineered for all-weather performance and durability — attributes also desired in shingles,” Malarkey writes. “Not only do we make our shingles more environmentally friendly by recycling these products, we also benefit from the advanced
technology inherent in the products themselves, ‘upcycling’ these products (incorporating recycled materials to improve product performance) to improve our own.”

According to Malarkey, each roof covered with upcycled products “diverts the equivalent of 5 rubber tires and 350 plastic milk jugs from the landfill.”

Talk about sustainability — and ingenuity.
