Twin Cities Rubber Shingle Roofing Experts

Minnesota’s Local Malarkey Roofing Contractor

Malarkey Roofing Products logo

Are you hoping to find an updated version of standard roofing shingles for your Minnesota home? At Lightning Restoration, we stay on top of the latest roofing innovations, which is why we are one of the only contractors in the Twin Cities area offering Malarkey Roofing Products.

Malarkey shingles are made of rubberized asphalt – upcycled rubber and plastics. Along with superior all-weather resilience, rubber shingles are environmentally friendly. Each roof diverts the equivalent of about five tires or 3,200 plastic bags from the landfill! This material also reduces smog by way of granules that help clean the air.

Why not choose a roofing material that provides better performance while doing more for the environment? Especially when rubber shingles outperform other types of roofing under extreme weather conditions like we have here in Minnesota!

Warranty Protection for Added Peace of Mind

All Malarkey products come with a standard manufacturer’s warranty, which offers limited lifetime coverage against defects. There’s also an alternative “Your Choice” warranty, where Malarkey will match a competitor’s standard warranty.

For even better warranty protection, choose Lightning Restoration for your project!

If you select a Malarkey Certified Contractor to install your roof, who also uses Malarkey’s accessories to complete it, you are eligible for even greater warranty coverage.

Arctic Seal® Ice & Water Barrier

For Minnesota homes, ice and water protection is among the most important considerations for your new roof. That’s why we recommend Malarkey, which offers two options for ice and water barriers tailored to asphalt shingle roofs.

Made with Malarkey’s proprietary NEX® Polymer Modified Asphalt for extra strength and durability, Arctic Seal® provides an extra layer of leak protection in critical areas like roof valleys, roof edges, and roof-to-sidewall transitions where rain, snow, and ice collect. It’s also your best weapon to defend against ice dams!
