Best in Class

Vista® shingles

Vista® was 1 of only 4 shingles in the country, and the only mid-tier shingle, to score Excellent or Good in EVERY performance category of the latest Hail Impact Study by the Insurance Institute for Business & Home Safety (IBHS).

Vista® shingles are Class 4 rated for impact (highest rating possible), and meet IBHS’s stringent FORTIFIED™ Roof requirements.

Performance Engineered

NEX® Polymer Modified

Made with our proprietary NEX® Polymer Modified (Rubberized) Asphalt, which combines asphalt for weathering, with rubber and plastic polymers for added strength and durability, Malarkey shingles are engineered to outperform and outlast.

Sustainably Designed

Malarkey shingles

Incorporating upcycled tires and plastic bags to increase strength and durability, while reducing landfill waste, and integrating smog-reducing granules that help clean the air, Malarkey shingles are designed with the environment in mind.

Installed Fourth

complete 5-component system

When installing a complete 5-component system for your new roof, roofing (field) shingles are installed fourth, after the starter shingles, and prior to the hip & ridge shingles.

Vista® AR Shingles

Unique Features

NEX® Polymer Modified (Rubberized) Asphalt

Combining high-grade asphalt with synthetic and upcycled rubber and plastic polymers, proprietary NEX® Polymer Modified (Rubberized) Asphalt formulation rubberizes the asphalt core of the shingle to deliver superior all-weather resilience and longer product life.


Vista® AR shingles have up to 25% greater tear strength and 65% greater granule retention than the industry standard (ASTM D3462), carry a Class 4 hail impact rating, and meet the stringent IBHS FORTIFIED™ Roof requirements.

Upcycled Rubber & Plastics

Recycled content can sometimes diminish product quality. Not so with our shingles. Polymers from upcycled tires and plastic bags are added to our asphalt formulation to improve shingle strength and durability, while reducing landfill waste – extending product life and landfill life.


Each average-sized roof of Vista® AR shingles diverts the equivalent of ~5 tires and ~3,200 plastic bags from the landfill.

Polymer Modified (Rubberized) Adhesive

Six bonds (3 laminate, 2 rain, 1 wind) of synthetic rubber adhesive resist dry-out and deliver extreme protection from high-winds, wind-driven rain, and shingle delamination.


Vista® AR shingles have up to 50% more adhesive bonds and twice the rain seals of standard shingles.

The Zone® Nailing Area

It takes over 7000 nails to install a roof. Even one out of place can lead to leaks or void a wind warranty. The Zone®, our patented larger nailing area, provides a bigger nailing target and longer shingle backing to help ensure that every nail hits and penetrates both shingle layers for maximum protection against shingle uplift and blow-off, as well as leaks from troughing and ice damming.


The Zone® is up to 2X larger than the nailing area on standard shingles.

3M™ Roofing Granules

Ceramic-coated 3M™ Roofing Granules add lasting color vibrancy, while our NEX® asphalt technology dramatically enhances granule retention – the shingle’s primary defense against hail, scuffing, and the aging effects of UV sunlight.


Vista® AR shingles have up to 65% greater granule retention than the industry standard specification (ASTM D3462).

3M™ Smog-Reducing Granules

3M™ Smog-Reducing Granules, which blend inconspicuously into the shingle’s color, harness sunlight to photocatalytically convert dangerous smog gases like nitrogen dioxide (NO2) into water-soluble salt ions that rinse off the roof with rainwater, actively cleaning the air of these emission-based pollutants.


Each average-sized roof of Vista® AR shingles helps fight smog air pollution the equivalent of planting ~2 trees.

3M™ Copper Granules (Algae-Resistant)

Algae-resistant 3M™ Copper Granules blend inconspicuously into the shingle’s color and help prevent unsightly black streaks caused by algae growth.


Vista® AR shingles come with a 15-year algae warranty.

Full Square

Shingles are sold in ‘squares’ which is the number of shingles required to cover 100 square feet of roof. Many manufacturers package their shingles to deliver only 97-99% of a square, in effect underdelivering/overcharging from 1-3% of the product.


Vista® AR shingles are packaged to deliver a full square, with 3 bundles equaling 100 square feet of roof coverage.

‘Your Choice’ Warranty

At Malarkey, we strive to make shingles that don’t need warranties, but just in case, we offer standard and extended shingle warranties, or our innovative ‘Your Choice’ warranty where we’ll match a competitor’s standard warranty.

Enhanced Warranty

Roofs work better when the parts work together. A complete new roof requires 5 components – shingles, underlayment, ice & water barrier, starter shingles, and hip & ridge shingles.


If your roof is installed by a Malarkey Certified Contractor, who also uses the above Malarkey accessories as a part of a complete roof system, your roof is eligible for extended warranty coverage.
