The Asphalt Roofing Manufacturers Association (ARMA) is now accepting submissions for the 2022 Excellence in Asphalt Roofing Awards Program. ARMA encourages all roofing contractors to submit their best low and steep-slope asphalt roofing projects from the past three years for consideration by December 1, 2021.
“Our program places great emphasis on excellence. Every year we see more and more contractors rise to the occasion and we hope that this year will be even better. Every entry we receive reinforces that asphalt roofing is beautiful, affordable, reliable, and the preferred roofing solution.” said Reed Hitchcock, ARMA’s executive vice president.
There is no limit to the number of entries a company may submit as long as each project meets the program criteria. Projects will be judged in four categories:
· Beauty – Does the project embody the true beauty of asphalt roofing?
· Performance – Does the project demonstrate asphalt roofing’s reliability, durability, and overall system strength?
· Asphalt: The Roofing Solution – Why was asphalt chosen for this project?
· Distinction – Is the project clearly distinct from its peers?
