Review:
"Ridge Cap - Malarkey Shingles"
In the fall of 2016, I received three bids to re-roof our home. Since Malarkey shingles had been recommended to us and since the bid from the "certified" Malarkey shingle contractor, Pinnacle Construction from Casper, WY was close to the other bids, we chose Pinnacle Construction to re-roof our home. After the shingles had been installed, it was called to our attention that they had incorrectly installed the ridge cap on the home, five dormers, the breezeway and the garage. I was told that you never install the ridge cap with exposed nail heads as it opens the door to possible leakage down the road. I called my contractor, Pinnacle Construction, in Casper, WY, and asked why his employee had installed the ridge cap with exposed nail heads. I was informed that they do this in high wind areas and Wyoming is a high wind area. Casper, WY is a high wind area but Worland, WY isn't so I asked him if he'd redo the ridge cap to my satisfaction as both my husband and I thought this would be the last roof we had to worry about in our lifetime due to their 50 year warranty. The cost would be $1500.00 to remove the existing ridge cap and $1500.00 to re-install a new ridge cap the correct way AND his 10 year warranty would be void! Since I had already paid him and felt this an outrageous amount to correct his error, I called Malarkey Shingles and spoke with Matthew Fox. He told me that people who have the exposed nail heads go behind the contractor with small square pieces of shingles and glue these pieces over the nail heads. I laughed! The manufacturer apparently doesn't care how the roof looks after they have sold their product. He also told me that being a Certified Malarkey Shingle installer is just a matter of applying for the title! I also went to You Tube and watched Matthew Fox explain how to install a ridge cap to a home and his video does not show installing it with exposed nail heads. After this I called around to several contractors in Wyoming who live in high wind areas and each informed me that they Do Not install the ridge cap with exposed nail heads. Malarkey Shingles are warranted for 50 years but this only applies to the material on the shingles, it does not apply to leakage by inferior installation. They will not warrant my roof from leakage even though a certified Malarkey installer was hired to roof my home...what a sham!

Review:
"Very very poor customer service"
I phoned the factory in Oregon 3 times and they finally sent me a letter to fill out, which the average individual would only be able to fill out half of the answers as it should have been sent to the roofer who did the work. I faxed it back to them the day I got it (which took 3 weeks) and after 2 more weeks I started phoning them to find out what is going one. Long story short, 9 phone calls later and I still have not got an answer and to add to the frustration my roofer has not called back either. What happened was I lost what I calculated to be about 100 pounds of granule either blown off or washed off by the rain and was all over everywhere. I have now written it off and this so called 20 year roof when it falls apart in 12 -13 years I will get a "50" roof from obviously a different company. Please, please people do not deal with this company at all.

"Shamrock Roofing"
Roofing contractor never installed Malarkey, factory rep came out to educate and certify, top quality job! Product research I've done, other brands grains sluffing off even before install. Not with Malarkey, best warranty is the one you don't need, this is a bonafide 30-40 year product. Roofers said easiest product to install.

"3 Tab is Class 4!"
I just recently discovered that the malarkey Duraseal a 3 tab shingle with is know to be the lowest grade shingle is now class 4 impact rated. And itís still the same price! I think that's shows how good of a company malarkey is.

"Highest Quality Shingles on the Market"
I am honestly surprised to see the negative reviews below. I have worked in the roofing industry for several years, and I can honestly say that I would put nothing but Malarkey shingles on my home. I am constantly impressed by their shingle quality, and have consistently seen them withstand weather events that other brands could not hold a candle to.

Review:
"Vista Shingle has Exceptional Value"
We had our home roofed with Malarkey's Vista shingles earlier this spring and it has held up really well so far. After some heavy storms came through our area we didn't have any of the problems that our neighbors did with their roofs.

"Horrible company to deal with."
I had 2 homes roofed with these shingles, after six years asphalt came of the shingles at one location. On the second location every 20 mile an hour wind gust would blow off shingles. Now nearly none of the shingles are sealed. Malarkey will do nothing about them. They might as well advertise their shingles for what they really are. The five year shingle manufacturer.

"No warranty"
Once again. Storm in Alberta. Walk out and found more shingles on the ground. And Malarkey says there's nothing wrong with them.

"Happy"
Great shingle and great seal. We live in a high wind area where many of my "old" shingles constantly blow off. These shingles have withstood the many high winds and torrential rains storms. I am very happy with this choice and will recommend this shingle to everyone.

Review:
"Bad costumer service"
6 year old shingles. Have blown off 5 years out of them years. Marlarkey well do nothing about it. The reason is the tar strip on the bottom is not adhering to the roof. Wind gets under them and rips them off. They finally responded to me. They denied the claim. Full out Lied to me about the reasons. They stated everything was good with them. Did not mention the real reason (the tar strip on the bottom). There customer Service and warranty are useless. I well be telling everyone who well listen not to use Marlarkey shingles.
