"Water draining between shingles & liner"
I had the 30 year malarkey legacy shingles installed a couple years ago. After the first rain the roof was leaking around the fire place. I called the installer & noticed they never put caulking around the chimney so the guy put it around the sides & told me not to put it on the top. I thought that was strange so today it was lightly raining & I got a ladder & looked & most of the water was not comming from the top of the shingle but from the bottom of the shingle & the top of the liner they use. Now I know why he told me not to put caulking on top of the chimney.

"Superior Inovation and Technology"
Malarkey Roofing Products by far makes the highest quality roofing products in the industry. I love the Polymer modified SBS asphalt technology and flexibility they have as they can be installed in colder weather down to zero degrees and are Class 4 impact resistant to hail. They have excellent customer service and knowledgeable helpful employee's. I have been so pleased with my roof I have recommend them to all my neighbors. We have just gone through a hail storm here in MN and I didn't have to replace my roof. Still looks great!

"Bad shingles bad warranty"
Shingles are 6 years old. Have blown off at least once every summer since I've owned the house. Been fighting with Malarkey every year since. They don't stand behind there products. They treat there customers like crap make up poor lies as to why they won't do anything about the tar on the bottom not adhering to the roof. Don't return calls texts or email. There corporate claims manager says to contact him if any questions. But leaves no contact information.

"Residential shingle/worthless warantee"
I have a Malarkey legacy roof installed in 2003 that has failed. This shingle is now covered under their Right Start 100% warrantee for 15 years. They tell me in 2003 my 50 year warrantee was only good for 10 years? For a proud, family owned business to write worthless warrantees is unfortunate.

"Impact Resistant- class 4"
I love my Malarkey roof and contractor. The contractor explained the product and the difference between Malarkey and all the others. The rubberized product is better and I get a discount from my insurance co. I saw some negative reviews and was surprised. Their customer service was helpful and answered my questions on the warranty. I decided to upgrade my warranty since I heard about other shingles recently on TV where the shingle manufacture wouldn't honor their warranty. My contractor went over that and explained the difference. They also showed me a video of someone shooting a pop can into the roof. Pretty cool

"Do not use Malarkey products"
This company has the worst customer service I have ever seen. I purchased a home in Texas with a 6 year old Malarkey roof. When the house was inspected by a certified company the shingles were said to be blistering. I then had an independent roofer inspect the shingles with the same results. I then asked the roofing company who installed the shingles to inspect it and they said the same thing. When I notified Malarkey of the findings from three independent sources they stated that they wanted their own inspectors look it over. This took weeks. I have now been waiting for their findings for two months and they are ignoring my attempts to contact them. My next step is to have legal representation contact them. Do not but Malarkey products. They do not stand behind their products!

"No customer service"
Shingles are no older then 6 years old. Every year since I bought the house they have blown off. The tar strip on the bottom is not adhering to the roof. Wind gets under them and rips them off. I'm from the Calgary Alberta region. The company rep. Well not answer my repeated phone calls or emails. This spring alone they been blown off 2 times. While my neighbor with the same age of house has not had this problem. They are not good shingles and there customer service is nonexistent! I am telling everyone who well listen not to use there products.

"Don't waste your money"
Don't waste your money, they won't stand behind their product. We had a roof installed 1 year ago and I have had multiple professionals come inspect and it needs to be replaced. Malarkey even admits it but they offer me 3k for a roof that cost 12k 1 year ago. The contractor stopped the install so their company rep could come inspect their product, and after inspection they wrote me a special guarantee letter that don't mean squat. Don't end up with a defective roof, buy elsewhere

"Terrible shingles and even worse warranty!"
Shingles were extremely warped right out of the package. They will not flatten out and seal properly. Called Malarkey and after a 2 week delay they have given me every excuse in the book. I've been building for 13 years and have never had this problem. Guess I'll swallow a $10,000 shingle replacement and go back to the brand that works.

I upgraded after the last hail storm in October 2007 to the Malarkey Legacy class 4 shingle. My roof got totaled by hail in June 2016. I have 8 bruises in two 10x10 areas. The roof also has numerous cracks and blistering. This shingle is warrantied at 50 years....it didn't even make 9 years. Would not recommend.
