Malarkey Dura-Seal 20/25 Review

3 Tab shingle clinging onto life:  This line on roofing from Malarkey is the entry level point in terms of price and rarely put on new construction anymore due to the popularity of dimensional shingles.  You do however get some brand name recognition in 3M with this product as they use 3M Colorfast granules for a superior color look and longevity.  As you would expect the warranty on these products is nothing to write home about with the 20 and 25 year numbers really for show.  The Real Start warranty which is really the only warranty worth it on Malarkey products is only 3 years for these particular shingles.  If you are trying to match some existing three tab shingles on just need something cheap for the shed this may be the roofing shingle for you.
