Sustainable Asphalt Roofing with Malarkey

Traditional asphalt roofing has historically been less environmentally friendly in comparison to other roofing types, which is why we’re proud to partner with Malarkey as they develop technologies for more sustainable asphalt roofing. Malarkey invented rubberized asphalt to produce cleaner, longer-lasting shingles, pioneered the use of upcycled rubber and plastic in shingles, and even launched the first smog-reducing shingle in the industry. All of this results in longer-lasting shingles with fewer emissions and reduced landfill waste, ensuring more sustainability as we fight off landfill waste and air pollution – one roof at a time!

Types of Asphalt Shingle Roofs

There are three types of asphalt shingles to consider: three-tab asphalt shingles, architectural asphalt shingles, and premium asphalt shingles.

Z

Three-tab Asphalt Shingles

These are the most common type, classified by their cutouts which make them look like three separate pieces. They’re affordable, lightweight, easy to maintain, energy efficient, and can last up to 20 years.
Z

Architectural Asphalt Shingles

Laminated with an additional asphalt layer and bonded with asphalt sealant, they have a more defined, structural look and are more durable and waterproof than three-tab asphalt shingles. They’re also energy efficient while notably increasing the value of your home and they can last up to 50 years.

Z

Premium Asphalt Shingles

As the name suggests, these are luxury versions of asphalt shingle roofing. Created to emulate high-end slate or cedar roofing, they’re still about ten times cheaper.

In addition to these three types, there are also different materials that your shingles could be made of:
Z

Fiberglass Shingles

Made with a combination of woven fiberglass as the base, asphalt coating, and ceramic granules on top, these materials create a waterproof and UV-protectant shingle while also being extremely lightweight and thin due to its lower amounts of asphalt.

Z

Organic Mat-based Shingles

This kind of asphalt shingle roofing has a recycled felt paper layer for its base. They’ll be heavier, thicker, and slightly more expensive than fiberglass shingles but they’re also more rugged and flexible. Downsides include being less fire resistant and susceptible to warping.

The Pros and Cons of Asphalt Shingle Roofing

When making your decision about the type of roofing you prefer, there will be pros and cons with any choice, and it’s best to know what to expect with each roofing type.

Z

Pros

  • Affordability: In conjunction with the financing options that we have at Cittrix Roofing, it’s a no-brainer for homeowners on a budget. With proper installation and maintenance, a quality roof doesn’t have to break the bank.
  • Color Variety: It comes in a wide variety of colors as well, ranging from neutrals like shades of grey and brown to more statement colors like blue and polychromatic hues. Depending on how much you want to spend, you can even choose asphalt shingle roofing that emulates wood or slate.
  • Simple Installation: Also, asphalt shingle roof repair is relatively simple since you can install new shingles on top of existing shingles, assuming that there aren’t more than two layers underneath already and that the roof deck is in decent condition. However, in general, asphalt shingle roofing lasts up to 20 years.
M

Cons

  • Non-environmentally friendly: Asphalt shingles are not recyclable without releasing potentially harmful emissions, and because it won’t last as long as some other roofing types, asphalt shingle roofing contributes to quite a lot of waste.
  • Susceptible to Weather: Wide ranging temperatures, both hot and cold, as well as extreme weather conditions, can cause cracks and warping of some asphalt shingle types.

    Great experience. We moved to Libertyville from the east coast and needed a roof inspection and quote from afar. Dan came over right away (that afternoon I believe) and quickly provided an inspection with photos + a quote. I quoted Cittrix … More out against two other companies - they were a tiny bit higher than one, but that company didn't bother to come out and inspect the roof and wasn't very responsive. Another company offered a higher quote but didn't actually see or inspect the roof. The installation started within a week or so of my signing the contract, and it was completed on time and to my satisfaction. Three skylights were also replaced and everything looks great. Highly recommend.Services: Attic venting, Roof installation, Skylight installation, Roof inspection, Skylight repair

    Clear communication, always on time and quality worksmanship. I recommend them to all my friends when they need a new roof.
    When we bought our house we knew we were going to need the roof replaced. We ended up using Cittrix and we don't
    … More regret it. It was exactly the experience you hope to encounter with a contractor. They showed up when they said they would and completed the work in the time frame they promised. They cleaned up the area in an acceptable manner and helped us do a walk around to make sure we were happy with the work. All questions or concerns were answered and addressed in a timely manner.
    Since then, we've held other contractors to that standard and I'm afraid professionalism like Cittrix's is hard to come by.
