As we are getting excited about the next round of ARMA winners, RoofersCoffeeShop® wanted to highlight the past winners.
The Asphalt Roofing Manufacturers Association (ARMA) has launched its ARMA Excellence in Asphalt Roofing Awards Program for 2019 which provides recognition of the best steep and low-slope asphalt roofing projects from across North America.
Formerly known as the Quality Asphalt Roofing Case Study (QARC), the ARMA Excellence in Asphalt Roofing Award program has been modernized to better reflect its mission of creating awareness around the most impressive, dynamic asphalt roofing systems. There is no charge to participate in the program, and it will recognize three asphalt roofing projects each year, highlighting the contractor(s), their team, and their outstanding craftsmanship. Submissions, which require a project description and high-resolution images, must relate to a project completed within the past three years. Click here to enter your project(s) or visit asphaltroofing.org/excellence/submit-your-entry/ before December 31, 2018.
2017 GOLD WINNER
The Triangle Home – Chapel Hill Roofing Company, Chapel Hill, North Carolina
When the roof of The Triangle Home started to leak, the homeowners knew it needed to be replaced immediately. They worked with Chapel Hill Roofing Company of Chapel Hill, North Carolina, to identify the right product for their needs. The homeowners researched every type of roofing material, from slate to wood shake and metal. Ultimately, they chose asphalt shingles because they provided more color options, protection from the elements and algae resistance properties. The affordability was also an important factor. The homeowners were delighted to discover that they could get a beautiful roof at a price well below that of real cedar shake. Chapel Hill Roofing installed a CertainTeed Integrity Roof System™, which consisted of Landmark® shingles in the color Pewter; WinterGuard® ice and water barrier; DiamondDeck® underlayment; SwiftStart® starter shingles; CertainTeed Ridge Vent; and Shadow Ridge® accessory shingles on the hips and ridges. The complexity of the roof made for a challenging installation, as there were many different roof slopes and 11 skylights that had to be replaced.
2017 SILVER WINNER
Stephen R. Booher Building – Advanced Roofing, Inc., Fort Lauderdale, Florida
The 49,955-square-foot roof of the Broward County Addiction Recovery Center’s Stephen R. Booher Building was facing numerous leaks. Advanced Roofing, Inc. (ARI) in Fort Lauderdale, Florida, was called upon to build a new, high-performance roof system that would provide the weatherability needed to protect the building’s residents. A Johns Manville SBS modified bitumen membrane, DynaLastic® 180 S, was selected as the base sheet. The base sheet was mechanically fastened and the laps were heat welded. All subsequent layers—the DynaWeld™ Base sheet and DynaWeld™ Cap FR CR — were also heat welded. In areas with low flashings, JM PermaFlash® was utilized to terminate the roof system. The SBS modified bitumen roofing system was chosen for the low-slope portions of this roof to provide a proven system with the durability to withstand the torrential rainstorms and high winds common in Florida. Installing a roof of this magnitude requires significant skill and work. ARI was able to complete the project on time and within budget.
2017 BRONZE WINNER
Burlington Fire Department – Cascade Roofing Company, Inc., Burlington, Washington
The Burlington Fire Department was in need of a new roof, due to existing leaks. They contracted with Cascade Roofing out of Burlington, Washington. The building required a product that had visual appeal, wind resistance and algae resistance. PABCO® Roofing’s Paramount® Signature Cut Shingle in Oakwood color became a favorite among the design team. The roof is 209 squares, or about the size of 6 or 7 standard homes. On such a large building, asphalt shingles provided the best longevity and durability for the price per square. This was a heavyweight shingle, and provided curb appeal, superior seal-down and protection from the elements. Cascade Roofing installed a full asphalt roofing system, including a synthetic underlayment and an ice and water shield on the leading edges. By successfully finding a local manufacturer and supplier, and by coordinating product delivery, Cascade ensured a seamless process for the building owner that met the project’s budget and installation requirements.
