Malarkey Vistas are some of the BEST roofing Shingles available!
Malarkey Vistas are designed in the popular architectural style, and made with Malarkey’s industry-leading NEX® Rubberized Asphalt, Vista® AR (algae-resistant) shingles deliver excellent all-weather resilience, a Class 4 hail impact rating, and include granules that help clean the air of emission pollutants.
Best in Class Vista® was 1 of only 4 shingles in the country, and the only mid-tier shingle, to score Excellent or Good in EVERY performance category of the latest Hail Impact Study by the Insurance Institute for Business & Home Safety (IBHS).

Twice the Rain Seals
Large Nailing Area
Longer Backing Shim
The only roofing manufacturer with no class action lawsuits
Made with our proprietary NEX® Polymer Modified (Rubberized) Asphalt, which combines asphalt for weathering, with rubber and plastic polymers for added strength and durability, Malarkey shingles are engineered to outperform and outlast.
Incorporating upcycled tires and plastic bags to increase strength and durability, while reducing landfill waste, and integrating smog-reducing granules that help clean the air, Malarkey shingles are designed with the environment in mind.
Air quality is a concern for us all, which is why Malarkey created the industry’s first smog-absorbing shingles. 3M™ Smog-Reducing Granules (featured in TIME Magazine’s 50 Best Inventions of 2018), harness sunlight to photocatalytically convert smog (NO, NO2) into water-soluble ions (NO3), actively reducing air pollution.
The Zone Nailing Area
It takes over 7000 nails to install a roof. Even one out of place can lead to leaks or void a wind warranty. The Zone®, our patented larger nailing area, provides a bigger nailing target and longer shingle backing to help ensure that every nail hits and penetrates both shingle layers for maximum protection against shingle uplift and blow-off, as well as leaks from troughing and ice damming.
The Zone® is up to 2X larger than the nailing area on standard shingles.
Upcycled Rubber & Plastics
Recycled content can sometimes diminish product quality. Not so with our shingles. Polymers from upcycled tires and plastic bags are added to our asphalt formulation to improve shingle strength and durability, while reducing landfill waste – extending product life and landfill life.
Each average-sized roof of Vista® AR shingles diverts the equivalent of ~5 tires and ~3,200 plastic bags from the landfill.
3M™ Smog-Reducing Granules
3M™ Roofing Granules Ceramic-coated 3M™ Roofing Granules add lasting color vibrancy, while our NEX® asphalt technology dramatically enhances granule retention – the shingle’s primary defense against hail, scuffing, and the aging effects of UV sunlight. Vista® AR shingles have up to 65% greater granule retention than the industry standard specification (ASTM D3462).
