Best Shingles Ever
2/24/2014
Pros
Shingles Are Great
Stay Soft And Flexable
Cons
Best Uses
Comment:
These are the best shingle ever. I have had them on house for 12 years. We installed solar 3 years ago and the shingles were still soft and flexible enough that making cuts and installing flashing on anchors was a breeze. The SBS modified asphalt these shingles are made with is the greatest roofing innovation in the last 50years. We look forward to the release of Malarkey Roofing's new product line the heavy weight Winsor made with the same SBS modified asphalt.
