Eco-friendly, Sustainable Roofing Products

Feel Good About Your Home with Sustainable Roofing Products and Solar Attic Vents

70% of homeowners value sustainable roofing and want eco-friendly products, according to a 3M Homeowners Study. Whirlwind Roofing and Construction is proud to offer eco-friendly, sustainable roofing products and solar attic vents for your home.

Unlike standard roofing shingles, sustainable roofing shingles are made of Rubberized Asphalt for superior all-weather resilience, upcycled rubber & plastic to reduce landfill waste, and smog-reducing granules that help clean the air. 

As a Malarkey Emerald Premium Certified Contractor, we are proud of having the highest level of certification awarded to Certified Contractors in order to provide you with the best sustainable roofing products on the market. We are also proud to be an Attic Breeze Certified Installer of solar attic vents.

Sustainable Roofing Shingles

Malarkey Roofing Products invented the cleaner, longer-lasting shingle technology known as polymer modified (rubberized) asphalt. The company pioneered the use of upcycled rubber in shingles, pioneered the use of upcycled plastic in shingles, and launched the industry’s first smog-reducing shingle.

For a standard home using 30 square of Vista shingles, a homeowner can take pride in the following environmental impact:

  • Approximately 5 rubber tires diverted from the landfill per roof of Malarkey shingles.
  • Approximately 3,200 plastic bags diverted from the landfill per roof of Malarkey shingles.
  • Approximately 2 trees ‘planted’ to help clean the air of pollutants per roof of Malarkey shingles.

Longer Lasting Products

Malarkey’s NEX® Polymer Modified (Rubberized) Asphalt formulation enhances shingles’ durability, impact resistance, and granule adhesion, so shingles last longer – the very definition of sustainable.

Cleaner Manufacturing

NEX® Polymer Modified (Rubberized) Asphalt is a cleaner shingle-making technology, resulting in much less emissions than the oxidized asphalt method of making standard shingles.

Malarkey is also GreenCircle® certified for Recycled Product Content and Waste Diversion from Landfill at all its manufacturing facilities.

Cleaner Air

By integrating smog-reducing granules atop our shingles, Malarkey helps clean the air of emission-based pollutants.

Reduce Landfill Waste

By incorporating recycled materials into the shingles, Malarkey helps reduce landfill waste. Thanks to their continued relationship with the Department of Resources Recycling and Recovery (CalRecycle), they have been able to incorporate polymers from upcycled tires to improve shingle durability, while reducing landfill waste. In the 10th cycle of the Tire Incentive Program Grant, Malarkey diverted 83,333 tires.

Solar Attic Fans

Attic Breeze Certified Installer

Whirlwind Roofing and Construction is an Attic Breeze certified installer. Attic Breeze solar roof vents (attic fans) offer the perfect solution to ventilation problems by continuously removing attic heat and moisture throughout the day, and do so for no cost of operation.

Proper ventilation is an important part of maintaining a healthy and energy efficient home. As the sun heats a roof throughout the day, attic temperatures can reach over 150 degrees in the summer. When an attic cannot breathe, the resulting trapped heat and moisture can cause numerous problems including higher electric bills, mold outbreaks, and ultimately the deterioration of a roof over time.

Solar attic vents work automatically. An adjustable thermostat, which is included, turns the fan on and off according to the temperature. Working as a self-regulating system with an attic, the more intensely the sun beats down on the roof, the faster the solar attic fans remove hot air to cool the attic.

Insulation Works Better

Solar attic vents help extend the life of attic insulation by continuously removing attic heat and moisture throughout the day. By lowering the average temperature in the attic, insulation works better and becomes more effective at reducing heat transfer into the home. When heat transfer is reduced, the result is a more comfortable home that requires less energy to cool.

HVAC is More Efficient

For homes that have HVAC equipment installed in the attic space, the cooling system will use more energy to operate the hotter your attic becomes due to heat gain. Solar attic fans work by removing heat and reducing the attic temperature, allowing the HVAC system to operate more efficiently and use less energy to cool the home, saving money on cooling bills and equipment repairs.

Shingles Last Longer

Solar attic vents can reduce the wear and tear on roof shingles. As the temperature of a roof increases throughout the day, shingles will give off heat both to the surrounding outside air and into the attic space. The more heat the shingles can transfer away, the lower the resulting roof temperature.

However when an attic is poorly ventilated, the air inside becomes so hot that it causes heat transfer from the roof to slow down, forcing the temperature of the shingles to increase even more. This excessive heat buildup can ruin roof shingles over time causing them to buckle and deteriorate prematurely.

Solar attic vents solve this problem by continuously removing trapped hot air from the attic space, allowing the roof to release the maximum amount of heat possible. A cooler roof extends the life of the shingles, saving money on frequent roof replacements.
