Traditional 3-tab shingles are best sellers in Seattle’s Eastside, including Mercer Island, Kirkland, Issaquah, Sammamish and Redmond because they’re durable and cost effective.

For the average Eastside homeowner who needs to re-shingle their house and are doing so on a budget, here’s what you need to know.

What is NexGen polymer modified asphalt?

3 tab shingles

Malarkey is constantly striving to improve its roofing products and NexGen is proof of this.  For over 30 years, they have been engineering and manufacturing their own blend of polymers to mix with raw asphalt.

The result was Flexor polymer modified asphalt, which keeps the natural rubber-like characteristics of asphalt.  Well, they weren’t satisfied with the status quo and continued to research new ways to improve their product.

They wanted to promote sustainability while keeping the same high-quality product and NexGen is the result.  They mixed Flexor with recycled polymers to improve asphalt flexibility, granule adhesion, cold weather installation and impact resistance while fostering environmentally friendly product design.

Colors to match your home

With 8 colors to choose from, you’ll be able to pick the color that best matches your home’s exterior.  Please note the Dove White color reflects the sun’s ray and that can reduce the amount of heat entering your home and increase the life of your roof.
