Washington D.C. (September 14, 2020) – The Asphalt Roofing Manufacturers Association (ARMA) is now accepting submissions for the 2021 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, 2020.

“We received a record number of submissions last year – all of which emphasized the many reasons why asphalt is the preferred roofing solution – and anticipate similar engagement for the 2021 program,” said Reed Hitchcock, ARMA’s executive vice president. “We look forward to seeing the impressive, innovative ways that contractors have used asphalt roofing materials in their projects over the past three years.”

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?

Winning companies will be recognized during the 2021 International Roofing Expo, April 14-16 in Las Vegas. Winners will receive a monetary prize (Gold – $2,000; Silver – $1,000; Bronze – $500), plus recognition in national trade media, local media, and on ARMA’s website and social media.

The Excellence Awards submission form, along with the full program guidelines, can be found at www.asphaltroofing.org/excellence.
