Pros
  • -20 Year algae resistance
  • Thick shingle providing 50 Year Limited Warranty
  • NEX™ polymer modified asphalt
Cons
  • Slightly less color selection compared with other manufactures top shingle lines
  • Heavier to work with
  • Requires different cap shingles and starters
Everything but the kitchen sink dimensional:  Malarkey decided to put everything it has into the Legacy series of shingles.  Henceforth it comes with the strongest warranty protection such as a 50 Year limited product warranty.  Every feature and piece of technology available in the cheaper shingles has been put into this shingle.  NEX™ polymer modified asphalt has replaced the previous SBS lowering the impact resistance to Class 3. The exclusive Scotchgard technology allows a 20 Year algae resistance.  Yep you guessed it the Zone nailing system for ease of install.  Fire rating - best you can get at Class A fire rating. Also included is smog reducing granules.

Malarkey Legacy Shingles Pricing

This is the top of the line shingle in the dimensional style and you will pay for it,  however for the technology and longevity it is really a value at $110-125 a square.

Malarkey Legacy Adding SBS in a traditional design really ups the bar for a dimensional shingle. 20 Year Scotchgard, Class 4 impact rating etc, this shingle is a beast.
