FOREST HILL, MD — The Asphalt Roofing Manufacturers Association (ARMA) has released a digital version of the "Residential Asphalt Roofing Manual – Design and Application Methods." This new format enables roofing professionals to access the publication directly on their mobile devices.

The manual serves as an essential guide to the proper design and application of residential asphalt roofing systems. By converting the popular resource into a digital download, ARMA aims to offer tools that further support contractors on-site, allowing easier access to reliable reference material.

“ARMA is thrilled to provide our tried-and-true industry ‘go-to’ Residential Asphalt Roofing Manual to professionals out in the field,” said Reed Hitchcock, ARMA executive vice president. “While we will continue to offer a hard copy of the manual that contractors can mark up on the job, the digital manual makes it simple to reference key information regarding residential asphalt roofs anytime, anywhere — from the seat of your truck to the peak of the roof.”

The digital edition provides readers with the same comprehensive information and key topics found in the printed version but with the benefit of online accessibility through embedded links and bookmarks.
