I've noticed that Tri State Metal in Elmsford Ny 914-347-8157 is a distributer for Malarkey. That is close enough to me to warrant consideration. I've noticed here on the board that those of you who can get them seem too favor them. So then, what's the real story on Malarkey?
They seem to be a very highly rated shingle manufacturing company.
Greg Malarkey has some very insightful comments about the shingle manufacturing process and the susceptibility to hail damage and the superior performances attributed to the shingle manufactured using modified bitumen instead of standard asphalt.
They are slightly higher priced from what I interpret.
They just are not available at any of the shingle supply houses I deal with in the Chicago area.
I would offer them if they were readily available though.
