The Asphalt Roofing Manufacturers Association (ARMA) has announced that submissions are now being accepted for the 2020 Excellence in Asphalt Roofing Awards Program. ARMA invites all roofing contractors to submit their best steep and low-slope asphalt roofing projects from the past three years for consideration by Dec. 1, 2019.
“Our program keeps growing as roofing contractors continue executing some amazing and innovative projects they are proud to submit for recognition,” says Reed Hitchcock, ARMA executive vice president. “Moving the application deadline up to Dec. 1, gives our judges more time to consider what we anticipate will be an increased number of submissions over previous years.”
In addition to the revised deadline, several small enhancements have been made that contractors should keep in mind when working on their program entries:
- New Judging Criteria – Projects will be judged on four categories: Reasons for Selecting Asphalt, Performance, Beauty, and Distinction.
- Expanded Scoring Range – Projects will now be scored on a scale of 1 (poor) through 10 (extraordinary) where previously the maximum score was 5.
ARMA will present the winning companies with their awards on the tradeshow floor during the 2020 International Roofing Expo, Feb. 4-6, in Dallas. Winners will receive a monetary prize (Gold – $2,000; Silver – $1,000; Bronze – $500), plus recognition in national trade media, local media, and on the ARMA website and its social media. There is no limit to the number of entries a company may submit as long as each project meets the program criteria.
Contractors are encouraged to review ARMA submission tips, and the What’s New one-pager to help navigate the application process. Visit the ARMA website to learn more, and to apply by Dec. 1.
