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!
