Roofing Materials Now in Spanish

  January 26, 2017

By Dan Hounsell

The Asphalt Roofing Manufacturers Association (ARMA) is offering some of its educational technical bulletins in Spanish. Eight of these bulletins have been translated in order to better serve the growing population of Spanish-speaking roofing professionals and building owners alike.

ARMA’s bulletins serve as educational resources that provide best practices on numerous roofing topics. The new Spanish-language documents cover steep-slope issues like algae and moss prevention, asphalt shingle recycling tips and the prevention of ice dams on asphalt shingle roofs. Low-slope and commercial roofing topics are also covered, including cold weather installation techniques and the damaging effects of ponding water. ARMA plans to convert more of its educational resources and roofing publications into Spanish in the future.

The newly translated technical bulletins can be accessed for free on ARMA’s website. When viewing the Technical Bulletins page, users can simply choose the Spanish language option on either the left sidebar or top right corner of the website. Visitors will be able to view both the Technical Bulletin web page and the downloadable PDF in Spanish.
