What brand of Composite Shingle does Spruce Up Northwest Recommend

Although we are certified to install multiple roofing shingle brands, by far, our preferred brand is Malarkey.

Pacific Northwest Heritage: Malarkey Roofing Products is a Pacific Northwest company initially founded by a family in Columbia County, Oregon. They bring a local commitment to quality and innovation to their roofing products, including advanced features like NEX® Polymer Modified Asphalt for enhanced flexibility, durability, and impact resistance.

Algae Resistance: Algae-resistant 3M™ Copper Granules blend inconspicuously into the shingle’s color and help prevent unsightly black streaks caused by algae growth, which is particularly important in the damp climate of the Pacific Northwest where algae growth can be prevalent.

Sustainability: Malarkey shingles are designed with sustainability in mind. They incorporate upcycled tires and plastic bags to increase strength and durability while reducing landfill waste and integrating smog-reducing granules that help clean the air.
