The Asphalt Roofing Manufacturers Association (ARMA) has launched its ARMA Excellence in Asphalt Roofing Awards Program, which recognizes the best steep- and low-slope asphalt roofing projects from throughout North America. Formerly known as the Quality Asphalt Roofing Case Study (QARC), the program has been modernized to better reflect its mission of creating awareness regarding the most impressive, dynamic asphalt roof systems.
"By repositioning the QARC Awards as the ARMA Excellence in Asphalt Roofing Awards Program, we are completing an overall ARMA rebrand begun over two years ago," says ARMA Executive Vice President Reed Hitchcock. "This rebrand places an emphasis on excellence, and our logo design clearly shows a focus on both steep and low-slope asphalt roofing applications."
There is no charge to participate in the program, which will recognize three asphalt roofing projects each year, highlighting the contractor(s), their team and their outstanding craftsmanship. Submissions require a project description and high-resolution images and must relate to a project completed within the past three years. Enter your project before Dec. 31.
ARMA Excellence in Asphalt Roofing Award winners will receive a monetary prize (Gold—$2,000; Silver—$1,000; Bronze—$500); an opportunity to network with key asphalt roofing industry leaders; portfolio-building materials; an official certificate; and recognition at the International Roofing Expo,® in a national trade publication, in the contractor's local media, on ARMA's website and on social media, among other outlets.
The entries will be judged by a panel of ARMA leaders, roofing industry experts and prominent members of the roofing media regarding four criteria: beauty, affordability, reliability and why the submitter chose asphalt.
